Sorry to hear about this. Denny and his friend Pete kind of adopted me in their golf group 3 years ago. We had many a good time golfing, joking and arguing. He will be very missed. Thank you, Denny, for the very good times we spent together.

Dear Carolyn, Anne, Susan and family,

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Mr Darnley.

I have such fond memories of him. I remember numerous trips to Shakey’s for pizza and root beer. (I think he liked it just as much as we did!). I remember a trip downtown to the Spaghetti Factory the night John Lennon died. I remember how he loved his cars - especially the one that was like a car with a “pick up truck” rear so that he could haul antiques! I remember him delivering a dormitory fridge to Anne and me at CU so that we could keep our beloved milk cold!

I remember his beautiful smile and magnetic personality - I always thought that Anne and Susan had such a “cool dad”

My thoughts are with all of you - sending hugs.

Anne Darnley
