"My name is Darrian. I was born in Monroe, MI on April 29, 1996. My mom, Tammi Kirby, and my dad, Aaron Young, welcomed me with pride. Along with my baby sister, Darby, we lived in Monroe until I was 14 years old. During that time I developed a love and passion for horses.
By the age of 5 I started showing horses, and by the age of 7 I finally had a horse of my own. His name was Charlie. My riding progressed, and at 9 and 10 I was showing at the Quarter Horse Congress, where I placed in the top 10 both times. Next came Toby, and he and I were Grand Champions at Regional 3 Horse Show. During my high school years at Airport High School, I continued to ride on their Equestrian Team, leading them to 4 district championships and 2 regional championships.
After high school, I tried my hand at office work. "Totally not for me," but I did meet Zach, the love of my life. We enjoyed hunting, boating, auctions, riding the Side-By-Side, and basically anything else we could do together. From the office job, I took a new job at Fairview. As opportunity would have it, within the county there was an opening for an Animal Control Officer. I got the job, and the rest was history.
Some people live 80 years and never achieve their dreams. I was lucky. At only 23, I was able to purchase my dream truck, a black Chevy Dually. It was awesome. Next came Demi, my dream barrel horse. She and I ran just days ago and placed 5th out of 177 contestants. The icing on the cake though, was Zach and I purchasing our forever home and horse farm. My dream life.
I'm so sorry I left you all behind so unexpectedly. I left my fiancé, Zach Farris, my mom and stepdad, Tammi and Brad Kamprath, my dad and stepmom, Aaron and Christina Young, my little sister, Darby Young, my stepsisters, Lily and Ruby Kamprath, Vanessa Warren, and Jessica Helfrich, my stepbrothers, Stefan Page, Teddy and Christopher Warren, and Ralph Helfrich. I also left my grandparents, Pete and Pat Kirby (Paw and Granny), Tom Young, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Please don't worry about me. I'm here in Heaven with that grin you all talk about with my grandma, (Mimi) Angela Young by my side.
Please always remember, I love you all. Until we meet again.
EOW, Officer D. Young."

Rarely do you meet a person that is beautiful inside and out and she was both. I had only volunteered at the shelter for a short time before Covid but I got to meet her and she was very genuine. We have a lot in common, I am a horse lover also. I have a rescue quarter horse. This is overwhelmingly sad. To say that she is gone too soon is an understatement. Her family and friends are lucky to have her looking over them. She will be missed and never forgotten. RIH, beautiful soul.

I'm so sorry for your loss. As a mother of a daughter the same age, I can't imagine. I am praying God keeps you all wrapped tightly in his arms. And that his unspeakable peace covers all of you for the rest of your days.
