  1. My thoughts and prayers are with Daryl’s family. I am so very sorry. Daryl trained me way back in the day. Always the professional and always kind.

  3. I went to High School at Vanguard with Darryl and 2 of his siblings, Derrick and Diane Stafford. All great people and all very athletic. Daryl always was into this type of sport to stay fit. I hadnt seen him in a number of years. So sad to when I did. It had to be sad news of his passing. Rest in Paradise. My homie and school chum
