Condolence From: Susie Moloney
Condolence: DT, I will miss you. Your deep and caring heart was always on your sleeve. I'm so glad to have known you and I wish I had been able to spend more time with you--but distance made that impossible. I will think of you often and always with great affection. Ride well, my friend. You are missed.

Condolence From: George Gunville
Condolence: My deepest sympathy to Darren's family and dear friends. I always enjoyed talking with Darren and getting his take on things and we always shared a lot of laughs. He loved his motorcycle, the rides and the places it took him. I will always think of him as a cowboy on a steel horse – intrepid, steadfast and strong. He will be missed not be forgotten.

Condolence From: Kim Callaghan
Condolence: Darren I would give anything to talk with you again, to crack a joke and hear you laugh, your calls and texts checking up on us when Shanny was in hospital literally kept me sane and focused, you gave Rollie and I so much encouragement and offered us the ability to vent without judgement...my heart broke when I learned you were gone, all the tears I had stored away for the last 3 months have been pouring out for you and ironically the little girl you kept me strong for sat beside me in bed comforting me...I can scarcely imagine how painful your loss is to your family. I offer up my condolences and sympathies to all effected by the tragic loss of one of the kindest most decent souls I have ever had the privilege of calling my friend. Darren's passing has deprived so many the simple pleasures that his friendship. You will never be forgotten you will always be missed. Braithrechas thar gach ni!

Condolence From: Tim and Elizabeth Petrash
Condolence: Our prayers and condolences go out to Darren's family.

I knew Oly only briefly while we were in Golf Company, 2RCR at Gagetown, NB, just before he went to Germany. The fact that I remember Darren from that short time, almost 30 years ago says volumes about him. He was memorable, but for all the right reasons. We became friends on Facebook and I appreciated what he offered up through his posts. Through his posts I saw a man who was always on the move. Darren threw himself into the fray we call life and I was happy to have him on as a friend on social media.

I got to know him better through Facebook and I saw someone, whom I remembered as a likeable young soldier, who over the years became a man striving to overcome the obstacles before him and to get what he could out of life. Be it through his studies, learning the guitar, sharing some of pics from his bike rides on Vancouver Island, you could see he was living his life. Those are the types of posts and stories I like best from my friends. Each of us living the way we were meant to live until, to paraphrase Darren, that "day we will have to face our own private apocalypse." Just by living his life and sharing tiny bits of it on Facebook and engaging me on my posts, even now, Darren continues to encourage me to continue to live a good life and run the good race. That's a good legacy for any of us to leave.

So "ladies and gents, lift heavy" as Darren would often say on his posts and keep calm and twist the throttle. I don't think Darren would expect any less of us.

RIP DT, Pro Patria.
