    It was a deep honor to know Darrell! He cared about the Easton Township and attended every monthly board meeting quietly. If there was a problem at the Town Hall or Township, call Darrell! In the summers, when he mowed the Township roads, his wife Jeanette would ride with him and would wave or stop. At the monthly Easton recycling, he would be in his car to help and was known for his bottles collection hobby. Rest in peace, my friend…..prayers for the family.
