After graduating from high school, Darrell enlisted in the U.S. Army and later served in the Army Reserve. He started his career with OG&E in 1957 and began his family by marrying Eva Cottrell. They were married September 7, 1962 in Shawnee, Oklahoma and were blessed with one son, Greg. The family moved to Norman, Oklahoma in 1978, where Darrell and Eva have resided since. Darrell and his family were members of Bethel Baptist Church, and Darrell was also a member of the Meeker Masonic Lodge and the University of Oklahoma Men’s Golf Association.

Darrell and Eva both enjoyed bowling and participated in several bowling leagues over the years.
