NORMAN — Darrell Ray Bennett, 64, passed away Wednesday, July 24, 2013, after a short illness. He was born May 16, 1949, in Norman, to Bill and Imogene Bennett.
As a young boy, he loved sports and played baseball. He graduated from Norman High School in 1967.
He traveled with some of his friends to England and other places before settling down to study. He attended OU, and his love for art was his main study. He won several awards for his painting while there. He was great in painting and photography.
He was preceded in death by his father; brother, Ken; all his grandparents; and aunts and uncles.
He is survived by his mother; sister, Gloria Graham of Norman; his son, Dillon of Owasso; one aunt; one uncle; and many cousins.
We would like to thank Jennifer Wickward for being a good friend to Darrell and being comforting to us during this time.
