Club members remember Rob:

Darrell was one of our original WCC (West Side Coin Club was our original name) members. During the early formation of the club he was a stalwart and always willing to help especially during the 1998 ANA Worlds Fair of Money here in Portland and was also involved in the 2004 National Money Show. Darrell primarily collected world crowns. Darrell will be missed but will live with us forever and will have place of honor here in the Memorial Section of our website.

Darrell was a great wealth of info on coins and I loved picking his brain. I'll miss him.

: Darrell was always asking me how things were going, and what's new. Among the many friends and acquaintances I have at the club, I will miss him.0
Joseph D. McCarthy

He was a great source of wisdom on subjects beyond numismatics. I'll miss him.
