Darrell L. Pack, Jr. passed away on October 22, 2015, in Tallahassee, FL. He was born on September 23, 1945, to the late Darrell L. Pack, Sr. and Frances (Payne) Pack. He is survived by his wife, Kathy; his daughter, Kristin Lambert (Clay); his sons, Rob Catledge, Trey and Jonathan Pack; his grandsons, Luke and Chase Lambert; his sister, Sharma Hagerty; his nephews, Dax Aaron, Christian Carannante, and Lee Davis; and his niece, Georgia Ann Davis. Darrell was born in California but grew up in Huntington, West Virginia. He was Director of Radiology at Biscayne Medical Center in south Florida. After meeting Kathy he decided to relocate to Sawdust, FL as he wanted his children raised in a rural area and on Youngblood Farms. He worked at the Tallahassee Community Hospital for many years as a Nuclear Medicine technician and eventually retired due to poor health. Darrell’s greatest love was fishing and he spent many hours by the side of a pond, lake, or gulf. He was a master fishing rod builder and many local residents are proud owners of his one-of-a-kind hand-made fishing rods.
