    "It is with great shock and sadness to learn of the passing of my truly good friend Darwin. We met back in the early 80’s and shared many of life’s triumphs and trying times including 911 and with our common engineering backgrounds, Darwin was the one to called me to tell me about the Space shuttle Colombia disaster. I spent many summer holidays together with Darwin and his wife Sandy, his sister Brenda and husband Cy at our favorite lake (Kalamalka) near Vernon, BC. Darwin loved his Carlson ski boat and took pride in becoming an excellent water skier. We usually skied at around 30-35mph so one day, Darwin was driving the boat and as I was crawling back into the boat after a spectacular wipeout, he turned to me with a grin and said “a little too fast for you, I was only doing 50!” My heart goes out to Sandy and family for their great loss. His contagious laugh, his generosity, kindness, companionship and friendship will be dearly missed. Ken "

    "We were speechless when Sandy called to tell us Darwin had passed away! We still can’t believe it. Just a few short weeks ago we were all hanging around our kitchen having a cocktail and telling stories. One is never prepared for losing a spouse, especially when it is so unexpected. We can not imagine how Sandy is feeling, let alone managing the curve ball life has thrown her. Darwin was a great friend and summer time neighbour. We were blessed and privileged to know him and able to share a few of life’s experiences together; he will truly be missed. With love at this sad time, Miriam & Evan Sherris"

    "Uncle Darwin made any room warmer, brighter, and more full of laughter. I am so grateful to him for being such a vibrant example of living life to it’s fullest whenever possible — from his sporting and photography, travel and adventures, to the time spent with the many communities he was a valued part of. I will always treasure the memories of my childhood summer and winter breaks spent with him and Aunt Sandy on the lakes and peaks of Canada’s West –– cruising with Sunshine in the Okanagan or mastering a downhill ski in the Rocky Mountains. My deepest condolences and love to Aunt Sandy and the rest of the family. I love you Uncle Darwin "
