Darren Steven Trethewey


February 18th 1971 – June 21st 2014

Our beloved Darren passed away on June 21st 2014 in Nanaimo, BC.

His sudden passing is a terrible shock to his family and friends.

Darren is predeceased by his sister Kym Trethewey (Kymmy) and recently, his step-dad Gordie Allan. His dad, Ralph Trethewey passed away in South Africa on July 3rd 2014.

Darren was born in Kitwe, Zambia and the family moved to Canada when he was two years old. He grew up in Nanoose and Parksville where he attended school and graduated from Ballenas Secondary. He lived in Nanaimo for the last eleven years.

Darren loved walking and taking photos of light as it filtered through trees and leaves. He enjoyed writing and was an avid reader who loved to learn. He sought personal growth even through difficult times and challenging circumstances. He found rest and happiness in his relationship with his Heavenly Father.

Darren was a caring and gentle person and will be terribly missed by his mother (Jean Allan), his brother Dean (Simone), niece Sabrina, nephew Hayden and is much loved by family in Canada, England, Scotland, South Africa and Australia.

In the presence of God.

In Glory …
