I want to thank my Uncle Daryl for his service to our country, and to his family over these many years. He will be missed, may he rest in peace. -- Joan (Peters) Maloof, niece.

Larry Rupert on Oct 9, 2020

I hired Daryl into the Methode test lab around '93. He was great to work with, and I loved his dry sense of humor. I will say a special prayer for him.

Donna Wills on Oct 9, 2020

CandleWe really enjoyed watching the video tribute to Uncle Daryl. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and brother. I have many good memories of our visits to the farm, of phone calls with Daryl and visits from him and our grandparents at Lake Chelan. Our prayers are with Daryl, Hope, Daryn, Jennifer, Christopher and Jason, plus all of the grandkids. With love, Donna and Chuck Wills
