Darren was like a part of our family. From attending races with my brothers Bear and Doug, to working with my husband Jeff traveling doing business phone installation and just being a great friend to my brother Jon and I. He even spent a few holidays with us after he left his family gatherings. We will never forget Darren or his big smile and incredible infectious laugh.
We will always love you Lucky. You will be greatly missed. (Lucky was our nickname for him)
Heartfelt condolences to his family.
