Born June 14, 1961 ~ died Sept. 14, 2009
Darin has been released from this world and returned to the arms of Christ after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
Darin was born in Bellingham, WA, raised in many places between Alaska and Nevada, settling on Salt Spring Island in 1987. He held many positions during his lifetime, from chef to builder to retail sales, finally getting his dream job of charter fishing. Darin was an avid fisherman, organizing an annual event in Tofino which he was extremely happy to have attended this year. Darin will be held close in the hearts of many whose lives he helped touch and change forever.
He leaves behind his wife Christine, two daughters Carmin and Devon, and son Jim, his mother Darlene and her husband Frank, siblings Randa (Boyd) Helps, Bryan (Angie) Craig, Jamie (Edward) Armstrong, Brock (Dell) Craig and Leisa (John) Moore, neice Jennifer (Jamie) Holmes and nephews Robert, Travis, Casey, Beau, Kholt and an amazing number of extended family.
His family would like to thank the many friends in
this great community.
A celebration of life will be held
