He was born June 26, 1940 in Kanawha County, a son of the late Howard and Ernie Horne Tackett. Darrell worked as a truck driver for State Construction and Stahlman’s and owned his own landscaping business, Four Seasons.

He is also survived by 17 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren who he absolutely adored.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by twin brother Jarrell; brothers Arnold, Robert, and Delbert Tackett and sisters Pearl Casto, Louise Martin, and Catherine DeLong.
Funeral service will be 1 p.m. Wednesday, September 4th at Waybright Funeral Home, Ripley. Visitation will be held from 11 a.m. until the time of the service at the funeral home.
