Donald was a gymnast, jocky, model and he was in the Navy. He was a pilot in the Navy, and I have heard that he flew threw the Bermuda Triangle and he lived to tell about it.

Darell was one of the original "Little Rascals." I am not sure which one he was but I am told that he was in just a few. He was the one with the hat and the pipe. I tried to look for his name on some "Little Rascals" web sites but didn't find it. Also Darell married Helene Machado. One of the original League of Their Own Womens Baseball players. Helene was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1988. They had 6 children together and Darell died in his 30's of a heart attack.
