On Thursday, March 31, Darrel Ray Herode left this earth to meet his loved ones who had gone before him; his father, Howard Ray Herode; mother, Josie Fulkerson; brother, Paul “Bimbo” Herode; and stepmom, Ida Herode.
Public viewing will be from 2:00 to 8:00 PM Sunday, April 3, 2022 and the family will receive friends from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm at Robert Massie Funeral Home. Graveside services at 11:00 AM Monday, April 4, 2022 at Lawnhaven Memorial Gardens under the directions of Robert Massie Funeral Home.
Mr. Herode was born in Central City, Kentucky on April 24, 1948. Darrel spent 35 plus years in the oil field as a trucking superintendent where he met many lifelong friends who valued his hard work ethic and dedication. There was nothing more important to him than being a “Pappy” and “Grandpa”. He never lost his love for motorcycles and casino nights.
He is survived by two daughters, Karla Herode of San Angelo and Hayley Harper and husband Matthew of Hamlin; two sons, Johnny Herode of Midland and Wesley Herode of Abilene; a sister, Joyce Webb of West Chester, Ohio; a brother, Chris Stewart and wife Pam of San Angelo; eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
A special thanks to Chris Stewart for the countless hours of care and companionship he showed Darrel to the end.
