Darryl Chaney served in the United States Air Force.
Chaney died Feb. 16, 2012. He was 58.
He was born Jan. 6, 1954, in Philadelphia. He was the son of former Temple basketball coach John Chaney. He was educated in Philadelphia public schools and attended Germantown High School. After graduating, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. He served his country admirably and earned an honorable discharge in 1974.
Chaney possessed a generous heart and a giving spirit. Practical and simple, he could be counted on to help in a time of need and would give the shirt of his back if that would help you. That’s just the way he was.
Family was important to Chaney. He looked forward to spending holidays and special occasions with his family or whenever he needed to see them.
His nieces and nephews enjoyed spending time with Uncle Darryl because he always made them laugh. More than that, he was just a great son, brother, cousin, uncle and friend and someone you loved being around.
He is survived by his mother, Jeanne; father, John; sister, Pamela; brother, John Jr.; and other relatives and friends.
Services will be held Friday, Feb. 24 at 11 a.m. at Oxford Presbyterian Church, 8501 Stenton Avenue. Burial is in Ivy Hill Cemetery, 1201 Easton Road. Bruce R. Hawkins Funeral Home handled the arrangements.
