Dennie Royce Darnell (1943 - 2015) .  Dennie Royce Darnell, PA-C, 72, left for his final flight Saturday, Oct. 31, 2015.

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.
