He worked as a laborer in the construction industry. His last position was replacing water meters for the city.

Big muddy trucks, loud trucks, old trucks, you name it, he loved them. The louder and dirtier the better, as far as he was concerned. An avid outdoorsman, Darrin loved to grill. He put his heart into whatever he was cooking. He was a huge fan of OU Sooners and Green Bay Packers. A true music lover, he enjoyed such a wide variety of music that not one type could be called his favorite. He had a lot of friends he loved to hang out with and help.

He was preceded in death by his step father Bill Alexander and niece Presley Ace Johnston and his grandparents.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory his mother, Nancy Alexander of Guthrie, OK, brother Daniel Rucker of Florida, sister Doreen Rucker also of Florida, sister Debra Lane of Edmond, brother Michael Alexander and his wife Carrie of Morrison, Ok, as well as step siblings and numerous nieces and nephews.
