I got word today that my friend Darryl passed away yesterday. Ron Munn told me.
But the guy was a long time antique dealer and picker and he made us a lot of money over the years.
He found me a nice Kleitsch once and a really nice Sydney Laurence.
Always left something on the table for the other guy, never tried to get too fat.
I have known him as long as I have been in the business. He was a familiar face at places like Long Beach and the Rose Bowl for decades.
He didn't have an enemy in the world. Nicest guy you could ever meet. Fair as hell.
I don't know all that much about him but I do know that he was a carpenter, from Solana Beach originally and was dedicated to sobriety.
We are going to miss you Darryl. Thanks for everything. You were a prince.
