    We knew Darren is a teenager. He was a Mench and a gentle person and we’re very sad that he’s gone are set empathy and feelings to his entire family and we wish you well in the future. MIchael.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I didn't really know Darren as he was only at Clix a couple of times when I first started working there, but I've heard many lovely stories from co-workers. He was always an encouraging presence even in his absence and I know that he will be missed very dearly.

    Words cannot express how much Darren will be missed. We feel fortunate to have had him in our lives, albeit for too short a time. We'll miss his laughter, quick sense of humor, kindness and great conversation. A fine man and true friend. Our heart goes out to the family.

    How hard it is for you to endure this, Marcia and Dick and Darren's wife and children. I grieve with you. Our daughter Meghan, Darren's classmate, remembered him as a "very nice boy" in high school and wanted to share that with you.

    Although we had lost touch for many years, I will always treasure my friendship with Darren growing up. He was a truly kind person and great friend. My deepest sympathies and condolences.

    Our hearts are heavy with sorrow. As we struggle to process his loss at 49, we remember well the nine year old Darren we first met in 1982 I'm glad to have been able to follow his life, to stay in touch peripherally. From a distance, I observed a good man, a decent man, an incorruptible man, the kind of man we all need in our lives and in our time. Darren's death at such a young age is beyond our understanding.

    I sent this text to Darren’s phone for David to read to him- Unsure if anyone did or could but thought I would put it here to make sure his impact was understood by those who love him. I also wanted to add that regardless of circumstances- Darren would always offer help, financially or otherwise even when times are tough- to offer a helping hand always meant the world to me- and many years later working for others I realized that is so unique to come by in a boss. I wish I could speak to you in person but I’m sure David will do my words justice. You and David were more than just bosses to me- you both took the time to not only invest in me but be incredibly patient as I had many different struggles during my time with y’all. Although nothing went perfect- we always made it work. I grew a lot as a photographer and a person under your leadership and I look back at my time at CLIX fondly. You were my first real bosses. I will always remember the long car rides stuck in traffic, always making time to drive through for coffee and all the silly sounds we had to make for a good kids picture. Thank you for putting up with my endless shenanigans and my accident prone clumsy self. I pray I made your life better in any capacity as you did mine. ??

    I’m truly saddened with his passing. Everytime I think about him, it gets harder and harder to not cry. Darren has helped and mentored me without any judgement. I’m happy to have met you during my stint at Clix. We have lost a gem in this world. My heart goes out to his family.
