Kim and Darren met in March of 1989, while out with friends at a bar. They dated for three years, fell in love and in June of 1992, they were married. They have three wonderful children that he loved with all of his heart. Darren and Kim had a marriage unlike any other and were definitely soul mates. As time went on, their love for each grew stronger and deeper.
When the grandbabies were born he and Kim decided it was time to move to Texas and be closer to their grandchildren. They always put a smile on his face even on his last day. Family was definitely the most important thing in life. Darren would do anything for family and friends, he would tell you he did not like people, but he made friends wherever he went. Darren was a genuine person and will be greatly missed by all that loved and knew him and they look forward to seeing him again someday in heaven.
