Darrell was born at St. Joseph Hospital in Fort Worth Texas on December 18, 1953 to parents Billy and Jackie Powell.
He would be their second born, however the first and only boy. Between him and his sisters, they shared a remarkable strong bond. Some of the best memories from playing baseball or football in the middle of the street, to Darrell getting everyone in trouble, and Vicki returning the trouble. After Graduating from Arlington Heights High School, Darrell joined our Nation’s Air Force in 1972 at the age of 18. Then sometime after returning from Thailand during the Vietnam War, Darrell and then wife welcomed their first-born Allison in 1985, then in 1986 their son Shawn.
He had a kind heart and was always there to lend a helping hand when he could. Having an incredible passion and talent for woodworking, he loved fishing, working with his hands, and the Texas Longhorns. The thing he loved the most were his two grandsons and the time he spent with them.
Darrell is survived by his wife, Rachel Powell; Daughter Allison Powell; Son and Daughter-In-Law, Shawn and Kalyn Powell; Two grandsons, David and Logan Powell; Sisters, Glenda Craig and Becky Powell; One aunt and one uncle; as well as nieces and nephews, and many cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents. Billy and Jackie Powell; and older sister, Vicki Leatherman.

Darrell and I were friends in the best sense of the word. I shall never forget the fun, exciting and sometimes scary times that we had. I will miss him.

Darrell was such a kind man and a very good friend! He was always there with encouraging words, assistance with whatever his friends and family needed! The last time I saw him, he was being a good friend to me during a time of need. The world needs more good people like Darrell and he will surely be missed! Love you Darrell!
