Scott O'DellSussie, Andrew and Alex. Thoughts are with you. I worked with Daryl fresh out of school, I learned a lot from Daryl he was a hard worker, great teacher and even better person. Condolences to all of you.
Julian RochesterDaryl, You were one of the first people I met in the HVAC industry 30 odd years ago when we both started and were never afraid to tell me what was on your mind. Boy did we argue. I was just a young rookie with a lot to learn. Most of the time you were right and I learnt a lot from you over the years. I am grinning and tearing at the same time right now. So glad we had that fishing trip in the Bahamas together a few years back. No fish that day, but a record for beer drinking in rough seas I recall. I will have one for you in Chicago this weekend. So sad you will no longer be there. You were a one off and I will genuinely miss your warmth and humor. I cannot honestly say that about too many HVAC industry peers. My sincere condolences to your family. Rest in peace my friend, Julian Rochester Nailor Industries.
