Darell "Big D" Espey
Brandon G. Thompson Funeral Home


Darell, age 61, passed away on Wednesday, July 3, 2019. He was a resident of Albany, LA. He was an extremely hard worker who dedicated many years as a truck driver. Darell had a true passion for the rodeo and was the designated "calf pusher" for all. He could also be found dancing the Jitterbug anytime there was music on. Darell had a huge heart and was always willing to lend a hand to those in need. He never met a stranger and was known for putting a smile on everyone's face. Darell was full of life, tons of fun, and the definition of a family man. He was truly one of a kind, always told you how much he loved you, and will be deeply missed.

Darell is survived by his loving wife, Susan Rayburn Espey; daughters, Kayla Espey Leggett (Jamie), Lauren Gilmore McLin (Cody), Brittany Gilmore Duhon (Stephen); sons, Darell Logan Carter Espey, Clay Espey (Dustin); sisters, Brenda Fairchild (Ronnie), Gayle Norman (Joe), Melanie Boudreaux (Kirk); and brothers, Keith Espey (Pam), Kevin Espey. He was the best Paw Paw to his grandchildren, Landon, Savannah, Brenten, Preslie, Mayson, Lila, Lincoln, Landrie, Hudson, Baby Leggett; in-laws, John and Joyce Rayburn; brother-in-law, Brandon Rayburn (Kasey); sister-in-law, Cheri Stewart (Johnson); and numerous nieces and nephews.

Darell is preceded in death by his parents, Melvin and Althea 'Tita' Espey.
