DARRYL PRESSLEY died Oct. 22,1990, in Washington, D.C.

Darryl attended Washington, D.C. public schools before enrolling at the Asheville School in N.C., from which he graduated as a merit scholar. At Asheville he was on the football and teams and was active in the chapel. At Princeton, Darryl was an economics major and a member of Ivy Club.

Education and helping others were important to Darryl, and he never lost sight of either's value. Even when in pain, he tried to comfort others. He will be remembered for his wit and keen intellect, as well as for his friendliness and caring nature.

Darryl is survived by his mother and father, grandmother, sister, and numerous other relatives. We send our sincerest condolences to his family.
