Darnell was an admired contractor and proud member of the NRA. While he was known for his hard work and was most often found “on the job,” he also enjoyed the outdoors, whether hunting, traveling, or riding motorcycles with family and friends. Darnell was always ready to lend a helping hand (or tool) to those in need.

Due to Covid, a celebration of life service will be held at a later date and will be updated on the website. The family requests memorial considerations in his memory be directed to The NRA Foundation, 11250 Waples Mill Rd., Fairfax, VA 22030 or the American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 4110, Glen Allen, VA 23058. Online condolences may be shared at, Farrar Funeral Home of South Hill is serving the Kennedy family
