Darrell Wayne James, 63, of Charleston and formerly of Toledo, IL left his earthly home on January 4th 2014 at 10:35 AM at his residence. We know he has already joined his parents and grandparents in heaven and they are all enjoying being freed from all physical infirmities they endured on earth. The last several years was a physical struggle for him, but he persevered for as long as he was able and tried to enjoy his last years. He was an inspiration to all around him in his final struggle.

Memorial services and burial of cremated remains will be at a later date. The Barkley Funeral Chapel is assisting the family with arrangements.
