We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Colonial Funeral Home & Crematory
Darl relocated from Fairchance, Pennsylvania to Salem, Alabama many years ago, and passed away after a brief illness. Darl was an amazing artist who lived his life on his terms. He loved and embraced life, people, animals, the mountains, outdoors, hunting and fishing. It has been said that “he was such a character”. Darl leaves behind his sons Karl Lewis, daughter-in-law Amanda and precious granddaughter Karleigh, Jared Ruda, Michael Ruda, Jaren Keith; two sisters, Christine Willenberg and Colleen Lewis; a niece, Tiffany Limbousis and nephew Nicholas Willenberg; cousins Arlene Nixon, Jamie Nixon and Lance and Tara Nixon. In addition, Darl leaves behind many whom he considered family, Derrick Lee, Jeff Schrader, Mandi Schrader, David Geelan, Paul Picosky and so many others that can’t all possibly be named. Darl was much loved and will be missed very much. Private services will be held in Phenix City, Alabama.
