Darrell Sorrels’ parents were born and raised in Oklahoma.
His mother was a meat wrapper for Humpty Dumpty and his father was an in-city truck driver for Chief Freightline. When he was a child the family lived in Nicoma Park, where they had a small acreage with farm animals. Sorrels was raised with three siblings and attended First Baptist Church in Nicoma Park.
“My parents taught us about hard work and to be honest, which produced integrity,” said Sorrels, a Republican challenging incumbent Oklahoma County Sheriff John Whetsel. “They raised us with Christian values and to always remember how important family is.”
Sorrels said he was taught to treat people with respect, and his father showed by example that it is wise to save a portion of his earnings for the future.
“He also taught us to stand firm in what we knew was right,” Sorrels said.
