I just found out today, January 31, 2020, about Darrell's passing. From the first time I met Darrell at Best Buy a few years ago I was very impressed with him. I went in with two lap tops, not working lap tops and within minutes they were both working with his expertise. We ended up talking about a lot of things I am certified in and he wanted to get certified in them also. So we made arrangements for him to take a NRA pistol instructor course, CWP course, and he was interested in becoming a SC state Constable. This was just a few things he wanted to do. We kept trying to make arrangements for him and his wife to take CWP course together. He had a hard time finding the time when they were off at the same time, but we kept trying. I use to stop in to see him and talk to him a lot at Best Buy and by phone. He was a very knowledgeable man about so many things. He talked about his wife and children all the time and the things they did together and things they wanted to do. He talked about his love for God. I was shocked beyond belief today when I found out that he had passed away. I really miss him and talking with him. We had a lot of plans. I told him I would teach his wife to get a CWP and I will still do that. Just contact me at my phone number 843-616-2400. Darrell was a fine Christian man. I will miss him. William J, Powell
