It was love at first site, and not only did he love Susan with all his heart, he embraced her son Darren Jr. and took him in as his own since day one. Darren and Susan were married June 28, 1985 and were blessed with two more children. He was a proud dad and grandpa and loved his family more than anything.

Holt; mother, Judi (Bob) Quayle; brothers, Rick (Suzette) Holt and Lynn (Trudy) Holt; many other family members who loved him dearly.

Darren was my life! He was always so good to me! I miss him terribly. It just doesn't seem real. Whenever we were together he always had my left hand. Always! Life will never be the same. I will spend the rest of my life honoring him, and keeping his memory alive. He was outstanding man! Thankyou everyone.

Family,

Darren was a good friend when we were younger I remember when he started working he was excited. I loved to hang with Darren, Shane, and Rick both of whom have also passed, I remember boxing out on his parent's back deck, he loved that and keggers. I always picture him in his black leather jacket and sunglasses. I am so sorry for your hearts. If you need a memory...

So sorry to hear about Darren,I worked with him many, many years ago at Casa Del Sol. He was a great guy with a big kind heart,to match his big Rambo arms.

Darren was a special kind of guy. I met Darren and Susan thru my son Randy Carter in Helper Utah. They were just like family to us. They were so fun to be around and they gave a fun baby shower for my granddaughter Randi in Helper. Darren will greatly missed. Our prayers are with Susan and their wonderful family and hope that this will get easier in time. Our love to all of you.


Elaine,Randy, Randi and Abel Carter.
