Darren Malvin Born on May 27, 1966, died tragically on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 close to his home in Homestead Valley. Darren is survived by his wife Mira, daughter Rachel (7), father and stepmother Michael and Barbara Malvin, siblings Scott Malvin, Maitreya Rose Silver and Matthew Malvin and his loyal dogs Bo and Baloo. Darren was preceded in death by his mother Sherry Silver Cracknell and survived by step-father, Ian Cracknell. Darren was an amazing man who gave so much to his family, friends, co-workers and community. Darren had a larger than life personality and was completely dedicated to everything he did. He was a doting father, going above and beyond to create magical memories for Rachel. He passionately loved his wife Mira and was devoted to building their life together, only months away from moving into their dream home they designed and built from the ground up. Born out of the belief that there was a better way to live while improving the world we live in, Darren founded American Solar where he operated as chief executive. He sat on the board of the Homestead Valley Community Association and helped lead the Homestead Valley Music Festival. He was cherished dearly and was an indelible part of the community. Darren will live on in our hearts but will be incredibly missed. May we all live our lives so fully and intentional as Darren. Services will take place at Acqua Hotel in the Richardson Room, Sunday, January 27, 2019 at 10:00am. In lieu of sending flowers, the family would be grateful for donations made in Darren's name to the Homestead Valley Community Association http://homesteadvalley.org
, to add to the many meaningful contributions Darren made in the neighborhood he called home.
