Jan. 18, 1958 – Sept. 24, 2020

Darrell Boyte passed away in his home in Rison, Arkansas on September 24th. He was 62.

Born to Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Boyte in Natchez, Darrell lived a long life full of humor and love. He retired after years from International Paper, Pine Bluff, where he had devoted his life to providing for his family. He was an avid musician, quick to understand technology, and a lover of animals. His sense of humor and big heart kept our family together even in the hardest times. He was gentle and kind and appreciated all sorts of people while being quick to defend what he believed in. Even in the face of severe medical issues, he fought for every last second he could spend on this earth with his friends and loved ones.
