    My deepest sympathy for the entire family. Darren was so reliable, intelligent and funny. I was so blessed to know & meet him through Gateway and continue our friendship after. My prayers will continue for comfort, strength and peace.

  • Sam Kooiker says:

    I so enjoyed working with Darren at Gateway and knowing him for so long. He had an amazing ability to run huge data processes and do his job well surfing eBay for car parts at the same time. A special person and he will be dearly missed.

  • James Day says:

    I will miss Darren greatly. He was sharply intelligent and exceptionally quick witted. Equally a good communicator both in speaking and listening. His knowledge of cars and motorcycles was well known. He spoke frequently about his love and admiration for family and children. He was quick to interject a story about his Grandfather while swapping tales with friends and coworkers. His loss reminds us how short life really is for all of us. He lead life with zest and positivity. Go hug a Grandparent, call a Parent and do something with your family. Tomorrow may never come.

    My sincerest sympathy to the family. Darren was an amazing coworker. Always quick with a joke or a story to tell. He will be truly missed.
