His three favorite grandchildren Paige Shelton, Madison Brewer and Ethan Brewer. He was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters and a brother.

Daryl was a Vietnam Army Veteran. In high school he earned the first state record for Gibson City High School Wrestling, placing fifth at the 1969 state meet. He was inducted into the GCMS Athletic Hall of Fame in 1997. He was very proud that his son and grandson followed in his footsteps and were also proud wrestlers. He was laid back, didn’t get in a hurry about anything and was known to his family as the King of Procrastination. He will be missed by all that knew and loved him.
