Darrell "DJ" Marcel Harvey, Jr., of Jefferson Parish, Louisiana entered rest on November 3, 2021 at the tender age of 30. He was born on June 11, 1991 in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana to Yonett Bartholomew and Darrell Harvey, Sr. He was a lifelong resident of Jefferson Parish with roots in Plaquemines Parish.
In his early years, he was nicknamed "DJ" by his family. He was baptized by Father Denzil Perera at St. Jude Catholic Church. He received the Sacrament of Reconciliation on January 23, 1999 and the Body of Christ for the first time on April 25, 1999 at Christ the King Church.
He graduated Youth ROTC June 25, 2009 and he continued his education and graduated from Job Corps on September 10, 2016 with a degree in Nurse Assistant and Home Health Aide.
