We are so sorry for your loss. Darren was my agent for over 25 years. He was very helpful, kind and knew his business really well. He will be greatly missed.
Oh my! Just made aware of Darren’s passing! He was such a wonderful and caring person! He was such a great help to me in the loss of my first husband (Larry Fullen) and Larry always considered him to be a great friend with good wisdom (as did I)! Courteous, caring, light-
hearted, and kind are qualities that come to mind!
He will be missed!

Exceptional talent as a person and a professional. Taught me a lot about business and life. The family will miss him but have been trained to survive. All of you have a tremendous group of friends that are willing to help. Just ask
I am so saddened and shocked to hear of Darren’s passing. He was my agent and friend for nearly 30 years. I thought of him like a brother because he acted so much like mine. He gave so much and remembered so many details about all of his clients. Much too young and unexpected endings are difficult so I pray for comfort for the family. He was an exceptional man!
The loss of Darren at such an early age is a tremendous blow to all of us left behind. Darren was a fine man and provided much needed support to our family when my father passed away almost 10 years ago. I know Darren and Dad are rejoicing together in heaven with the rest of our family who have already gone home. All of our love and prayers to the family.
