TOWNSEND – Darren Bruce

January 10, 1960 – December 3, 2010

Darren Townsend passed away peacefully in his sleep at home on Friday, December 3, 2010 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Darren leaves behind to mourn him, his devoted wife Lisa and his two loving sons Jesse and Chase. He is also survived by his mother Daphne, his father George (Faye), siblings; Gary, Sandra, Heather, Kelly and Jeremy, his father-in-law Walter Baer, sister-in-law Debbie (Mike), brother-in-law Kevin (Kim), and nephews and nieces; Chris, Tommy, Josh, Lacie, Nicola, Noah, Trinity, Cody, Nicholas, and Madison.

During his lifetime Darren created and operated two very successful businesses; Dag’s Upholstry and Alberta Fun Money Casino. He worked hard to support his family, but on a warm summers weekend you could always find him golfing with his boys, or bar-b-queing and playing horse shoes with his family and friends. Darren will be sadly missed by all.

A Celebration of Darren’s life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Thursday, December 9, 2010 at 2:30 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Darren Townsend, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park, Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200.

    My deepest sympathy and condolences go out to all of Darren’s family. I was fortunate enough to cross paths with Darren through his Casino business and worked for him for a number of years getting to know him and many of his family members. His upbeat, high energy personality, great sense of humor and big heart for all will surely stay with me and many others. He will always be remembered as our million dollar man!
