Obituary for Darryl L. Best

Darryl L. Best Sr., affectionately known as “City”, entered into eternal rest on Sunday December 9, 2018 at St. Joseph’s Manor.

He was a devoted father and resident of Stratford, CT for 25 years. Darryl was educated in the Bridgeport School System, and subsequently received education at Ft. Hood High School in Texas.

Darryl was an awesome basketball player, also known as ”Witch Doctor” on the court who thrilled many with his moves. Even after becoming paralyzed, he continued to play on one of two wheelchair basketball teams in Connecticut, The Park City Rollers.

He was an avid New York Giants and New York Knicks fan. He could often be counted on to share the highlights of his teams at any time, requested or not Darryl enjoyed spending time with his son and grandchildren often slipping candy to the grands!

Darryl was a great friend and champion of those whom he loved. You would never have to question his loyalty because his word was his bond!

He is predeceased by his mother Elizabeth Wood’Ard-Best and father Lester Rowe.

Darryl is survived by his son, Darryl L. Best Jr. (Una) of Bridgeport, CT., three grandchildren Derek, Serena, and Ava, four brothers James (Jimmy) Brooks (Sara), Charles Brooks, Vernon Best, Craig Freelove (Queenie), sister Leslie Best, Aunt Alice Hardison and special cousins/sisters, Gwendolyn Rowe and Nicole Hardison.

He will be dearly missed by all those who loved him. He leaves to cherish his memories, his uncles, aunts, cousins and countless friends.
