Darren is survived by his loving wife of 29 years Anne (nee Alyea).
He will be missed dearly by his two adoring sons Brendan Michael and Adam David.
Beloved son of the late Arthur and Ethel Donovan and cherished son-in-law of Monty and Janice Alyea.
Outstanding brother to Charlene, Charles, Daniel and his wife Michelle as well as a fun-loving uncle to Zachary, Ella, Jacob and Ryan.
Darren will be fondly remembered by his extended family, many friends and former colleagues. Fletcher will miss Darren’s constant companionship.
Darren had many gifts, but he was especially known for his love of playing the piano, his beautiful gardens and his passion for cooking. He loved to travel, particularly to Vegas (“The Cottage”), but most of all Darren enjoyed entertaining his family and friends in the Donovan backyard oasis. He was a selfless man.
