They say, "A man's Legacy is a measure of his wealth". Darwin's Legacy is his family, friends and sense of humor. He, indeed, was a wealthy, wealthy Man. Rest in Peace our friend! Bruce and Arlene Peters

Lori and family, we will always treasure our memories of Darwin. He gave my girls many happy Christmas memories. I will never forget the first time I ran for election and he helped put out signs, and told me to make sure to visit the people on his maintainer route. Mostly, he will be remembered in our family as an amazing Shriner, and his passion for helping the kids. He was always willing to lend a hand, and tell a great joke. He will be missed by many. Sending our love, hugs, and prayers to the family.

We wanted to share our condolences with you along with a favorite memory of Darwin. It was Christmas Eve in 2009, after blading snow for 10 plus hours and having to go out early on Christmas Day doing the same thing over again Steve shared that he wasn’t going to be able to see his kids open up presents on Christmas Day. Darwin arranged for “Santa” to come that evening bringing Christmas presents to the girls and a memory we will not forget.
