Darrell met his wife Chandra in 1989 and they were married in June 1995. They welcomed their greatest blessing Darriell Alexus, September 1996. Darrell was what his wife called, “The Blue Print” when looking for a husband and father. Darrell took his roles as husband and father seriously and lived out his love for his family daily.
