After receiving his certification he worked with several companies in Tampa and Spring Hill. Daryl was a good employee who never missed a day, was always on time and rarely complained about the people who he worked with.   In spite of it all he went to work everyday until he had health issues.

Daryl excelled in sports and showed good sportsmanship whether he won or lost as a young athlete in youth baseball with his dad as coach.  Upon entering high school sports, he continued to be very coachable and competitive. 

Daryl was a kind, loyal and dependable friend who would go out of his way to help, oftentimes neglecting himself. He was a loving uncle to his niece, Jeniah who he enjoyed playing games and school.  He was her favorite student because she gave orders and he followed.
