Darryl Will Be Missed

I had the pleasure of getting to know Darryl over the past few years and am deeply saddened to have heard he passed. I enjoyed many conversations about his playing days, the game today, watching football with him on Sundays and hear him brag about his grandchildren! I will miss seeing him at the eZone!

My late condolences to his family...RIP Darryl!

Sorry for your loss

I was 10 to 15 when Daryl was rattling the old Garden boards. Another Big Bad Bruin can rest in peace knowing the joy he brought to the Boston fans. " Salute!"
Condolences to Pat & family

Hi Pat & family; My deepest Condolences.I just found out 2 nights ago from Fred Stanfield, who I just met in Fla where we both have winter homes. I was shocked and saddened with this news, as I played a lot of golf and hockey with Darryl when I was living in London. Those London years were mostly good times and memories.Hockey was his life. He would have few regrets, because, he loved it, and all the people, and places it allowed him to go.
Sorry for your loss

Dear Pat, Darryn and Leanne,

I'm so sorry to hear of Darryl's (Mr. E) passing. My sincere condolences. I have many fond memories of all the Beachwood Ave families, not to mention the children ( Darryn and Leanne) I babysat so often! My thoughts are with you all at this time.
