I remember working with Darren at the sexsmith tim hortons. I always remembered the time that we were working together and he was helping me get the coffees out and I got a perfectly good $50 bill but I knew something was a little bit off when I got the 50. So I passed it to Darren and asked him to look at it and it was fake. Also I remember all the side line jokes that we always passed towards each other and would always have a good laugh. He was like a big brother that I never had.
Chrystle and kavan. I just want to send my condolences to you guys. He was one of a kind. He hard a heart of gold and a laughter to boot. He will be missed. U guys are in my prayers and love u guys.

Hi Chrystle, we want you to know that we are thinking of and praying for you today. I still remember standing before you as you shared your vows together. What a beautiful day it was. It does not feel all that long ago and his life has been taken at such a young age.
We share in your loss and pray that the comfort and peace of our Lord will be with to you at this time.
Bruce and April
