Darin will be sorely missed. I remember him as a student, a neighbor, and a friend. The world has lost a shining light. My heartfelt sympathies go out to his family.

Condolence from Norman Fraser on March 8th, 2014 8:45 pm

Darin worked blueberry fields in the back woods of Shelburne County for more than 12 years.

I was introduced to Darin by his father Sonny who had worked the farm for years before that. Darin, my father Vernon, and my brother Allan, all lived and worked from a woods camp year round, busily clearing the land and working the fields during that time.

Sonny was happy to see Darin working with us because he could work, hunt, fish, and spend more time in their mutually favorite environment… the back woods.

When Sonny was about to die the last thing he asked of me was “Would watch over Darin” and “Keep an eye on him” and “Protect him” from harm.

Sonny I hope you forgive me for failing you in this regard.

Darin i pray God will reunit you, your mother, and your father in heaven.

Darin may your soul rest in peace and may God bless the family you left behind.

Condolence from Marsha Ringer and family on March 9th, 2014 4:41 am

Amanda, Kelsey, Jonathan, Darian and family
We were saddened by the loss of such a young man that was full of life. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you all as you grieve for Darin. Thinking of you.

Condolence from Veronica Wilson (nee McLean) on March 9th, 2014 10:30 pm

I just heard of Darin’s passing and wanted to send my condolences to his family.

I have known Darin for 25+ years and he was always sweet with not a bad thing to say. He always had a smile to offer even when things seemed really bad.

After I left Prince Rupert, Darin and I lost contact but through the magic 😉 that is FB reconnected intermittently, and again, his happiness shown through during the few conversations we had.

No words can help with the loss you feel now, just know, you are in my prayers and he was loved by many people throughout his life.

With loving thoughts,
Veronica Wilson
