Darrell Lee Bouscher

February 15, 2024

Darrell Lee Bouscher, 75, of DeWitt, AR ascended to be with his Heavenly Father on February 9, 2024. Born on February 27, 1948, he was preceded in death by his parents Delbert Lee Bouscher and Vera Marie Pollard, his stepfather Terrell "Leon" Pollard, his sister JoAnn Wood, and his beloved wife, Charlotte Ann McCarty Bouscher.

He is survived by his siblings James "Hootie Bouscher, Delbert Bouscher, Glenn Pollard and Glenda Coker.

Darrell graduated from DeWitt High School in 1966 and soon enlisted in the United States Navy. He was a proud veteran that boxed competitively and became one of the Navy's top key punches while traveling to over twenty different countries. Spending time on the USS Henderson and the USS Sylvania, he received sailor of the month on the latter for saving countless lives from pending friendly fire while on tour in the Vietnam War.

He returned stateside in 1973 and started his career with Blue Seal Petroleum shortly afterward. He attended a local dance with his future wife, after being introduced to her by his mother. Realizing that he and Ann were soulmates, the young couple married on July 28, 1973, in DeWitt, AR. Their blossoming love produced three children, Michael, Clint, and Tara, and would span 47 years of marriage until Ann's untimely passing in 2020.

Darrell and Ann built their dream country home in 1979, and they planted hundreds of trees, grew countless gardens, and loved watching the flourishing wildlife at their home.

Darrell loved interacting with his customers in his 40+ years at Blue Seal Petroleum. He also was an avid sportsman who loved catfishing, squirrel hunting, training dogs, or waiting in that deer stand for a massive buck to make his presence known.

Darrell was always a family man of solid values that was thankful for his military and management experience, along with his cherished times in the Masonic Lodge. He and Ann made many beautiful memories while watching their three children, eight grandchildren, and one great-grandchild play and grow.

Visitation will be 2:00 February 13 at Essex Funeral Home with funeral services beginning at 3:00. Burial will follow in Cedarcrest Memorial Gardens. www.essexfuneralhome.com
