Darrel was a people person. He could strike up a conversation with anyone. Sometimes even finding they had mutual acquaintances or other ties. He was, to put it nicely, a collector of just about everything. He loved going to garage sales. A lot of times taking his Aunt Carolyn and sometimes Aunt Kay. He could spend the whole day at a sale and go back everyday it was open. He loved to square dance, traveling near and far for a dance. Hunting and fishing both fresh water and ice were also activities he enjoyed. He loved working with wood and building things. At the time of his retirement, he was working for the Skamania County Sherriff’s Department supervising a work release crew. He also worked as a Sears repairman, Burlington Northern Railroad, Klickitat County driving snowplow and A & A Building Supply in Goldendale, and an all around handy man. In high school he caught porcupines for the department of Natural Resources.
