Aug 12, 1973 – Dec 30, 2017
Our world got a little darker with the recent passing of a bright light. Darren Wilby will be forever loved and missed by his beloved wife Nyla and children Kohen, Ethan, Reese, Caleb, Madison and Ben.
He also leaves behind his parents Ed & Kathy Wilby, sisters Kim Cox (Steve) and Kerri Spanier (Stuart) and brother Warren as well as many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, dear friends and co-workers.
Darren enjoyed camping, boating, hockey and music. He loved family dinners, card games and playing his guitar. He approached everything in his life with tremendous integrity, courage, thoughtfulness and a wicked clever sense of humour.
Darren’s family thanks staff at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, the cancer centre and North Okanagan Hospice house.
An open house celebration of Darren’s life will be held January 20, 2018 between 1:30 -3:30 PM in Coldstream at the Women’s Institute Hall, 9909 Kalamalka Road.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in Darren’s name to the Okanagan Rail Trail (okanaganrailtrail.ca).
Arrangements have been entrusted to Vernon Funeral Home, Phone: 250 542 0155.
