vestry class of 2020-2023

Darrell was born in Pennsylvania. After receiving a BS in Engineering from Penn State University, he relocated to his new home in Connecticut, where he began his career at Electric Boat. Thirty-two years later, Darrell still spends his days designing submarines as a supervisor of a system engineering group.

In between times, he tries to find time for his numerous other passions, which include boating, live music and theater, reading, cooking, and generally exploring the world with his wife, Deb. Darrell first came to St. John’s on a Christmas Eve five years ago and was immediately drawn by the overwhelming sense of fellowship and community on full display that night. Since then, he and Deb were confirmed into the Episcopal Church, where he has participated in numerous educational, outreach, and other ministries, including Shoreline Soup Kitchen, Altar Guild, rummage sale and the reformed Legacy Society (St. John’s Visionaries). He is thankful for the opportunity to serve on the St. John’s Vestry and is eager to continue growing in the spirit and following the paths discerned for him.
