I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers. May God surround each of you with His loving grace and give you peace during this trying time. I will remember Darby's integrity, how he strove for excellence and his great story telling! He will be greatly missed.
Darby was an exceptional man who was both loved and respected by his co-workers. He could make the esoteric understandable and interesting. And he told the best stories, whether it was talking about family or explaining the mythology of the X-Files. He will long be remembered with great fondness.
I am filled with so much love for Darby, Andrea and the Fuerst Family, which feels like my own due to many wonderful years at MPWMD watching his kids grow and hearing many stories about them and so many other facets of his life, including twin Rory. Even work-related trials and tribulations were punctuated with much laughter. Darby was known as a man of integrity, honesty, humor and great technical knowledge, and was respected by all (even opponents) for those reasons. He could explain complex situations in ways people could easily understand, which is quite a gift. We all felt a great loyalty to him as a manager, colleague and friend. I am so sad that Darby's voice has been silenced in such a cruel way, but he will always live large in my memory. "You're Alive" always (a private joke we shared). With sincere condolences to you all for this great loss. Much Love, Henri
