  Darrel, the son of Ernest and Hildred Lieber, was born on December 31, 1937, in Emerson, Nebraska. He graduated from Waterbury High School in Waterbury, Nebraska.

  On December 9, 1978 he married Sue Carol Luther in Ponca, Nebraska.

  He worked for O’Neill Grain, co-owned Lieber Conoco, managed So. Sioux Feed & Supply, owned Lieber Steel & Erection, was plant manager of Boyer Valley Fertilizer, and retired as a sales representative for United Horticultural & Supply.

  Darrel and his wife, Sue, enjoyed traveling, most of it in their motor home. He was fortunate to visit all 50 states, Canada, Mexico, many European and Scandinavian countries, and take cruises to various areas. In later years, he spent many winters in Arizona. At home, he delighted in helping his neighbors and giving away produce from his garden. He also enjoyed golfing, fishing and football, especially watching the Nebraska Cornhuskers; he also loved attending the activities of his children and grandchildren.
