Darin "DJ" Dwayne Attocknie Jr.
November 29, 1993 – May 12, 2021
Concord, NH - Darin “DJ” Attocknie Jr unexpectedly passed away on May 12, 2021, gaining his angel wings, much too soon in life at only 27 years old.
Born at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas on November 29, 1993, DJ was the middle of 3 children of mother Kimberly. Later graduating Concord High School in 2012, recently he has been employed at Capstone Logistics at their warehouse.
Those who knew DJ knew he loved soccer, his video games, especially Rocket League, and loved and cared fiercely for those close to him in his life. His close friends and family can tell you DJ was as stubborn as could be, but would drop everything he’s doing to help a friend in need. As his sister would say, he was “incredibly sarcastic” and always had a witty comeback. A beautiful kind soul, plagued by mental illness.
People close to DJ knew that some days were better than others, the last few years have had their fair share of cloudy days coupled with days of sunshine. Looking to now, we hope to believe he has found peace. Something unfortunately, he could not find here on Earth.
DJ had an infectious grin, spreading from ear to ear and radiated love and laughs in every room he went into, even for those he met for a short time. For standing tall at 6’3’’, he towered over most, especially his immediate family, and always used it to help in the projects that required that extra arm reach. He was always willing to help.
He is missed terribly by his friends and loved ones. But he is one special guardian angel for everyone he met. His passing has created a void in our everyday lives but he is in our hearts and on our minds everyday, now until forever.
DJ is survived by his mother Kimberly, and her husband Mike of Concord, NH; his older brother Taylor, and his wife Sharon and son Mason of Israel; his younger sister Emmily of Concord, NH; his maternal grandparents, Paul and Patricia MacLean of Gold Canyon, AZ; maternal grandfather David Kruse of Manchester, NH; a maternal great aunt, Peggy Bahnson of MElrose, MA and his longtime friend, considered family, Tyler St.Gelais of Concord, NH as well.
Calling hours will be held on Monday, May, 17th, 2021 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm at Bennett Funeral Home, 209 North Main Street, Concord, NH.
All the family wishes for, is if you have someone you love or someone you know struggling with a mental illness, to reach out to them, be a helping hand for them and to just listen.
Arrangements are entrusted to the Bennett Funeral Home of Concord. Memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at www.Bennettfuneral.com for the Attocknie/Gallagher family.
