RIP Job Well Done !
On Saturday Oct 31,2015 a light went out in the world with the passing of our dear friend and teammate, Cpt Dennie Royce Darnell. Dennie was such a vital part of Liberty Jump Team as a FAA Master Rigger, Static /HALO/ HAHO-qualified jumpmaster, mentor and teacher of all things parachuting. His wealth of knowledge helped LJT to stay safe and well informed and this individual leaves us with a big hole in our team. He was everything parchute.
He had an illustrious career as an Air Force Pararescue jumper
and was a Vietnam Veteran. Dennie continued to rig for the Military even
after retirement and played a very active part of the Texas State Guard.
He was most proud of his last jump at Normandy, France, on the 70th anniversary of D-Day. Dennie's life was one of service.
