Darin was born in Medicine Hat and the family moved to Calgary when he was 2 years old; he overcame a rare kidney disease which Doctor’s predicted to be terminal when he was 9. After that he was all about hockey; he loved hockey more than anything and that’s how he met all of his best friends. He worked for EnCana Energy and also worked for a while erecting scaffolding. Family, friends and hockey were his life; he will be missed by all who knew him.
