I don't recall how I happened to meet and become high school friends with LaDaryl, but anyone who spent 10 minutes talking with him would discover he was an intellegent, well read person and interested in many topics, particularly hogs when we were in high school.  In recent years I became reacquainted with LaDaryl through attending local lecture series and had good bantering conversations on the topic at hand. I will miss his sharp wit and occassional sarcasms.

Ladaryl was a lunch buddy of mine in High School.  After that, I saw him once while I was working at the library.  Later he was a customer where I now work.  He was always opinionated and liked to talk.
