Darren Wyatt Tremblay
1972 – 2018
Darren Wyatt Tremblay, 46, passed away suddenly at his home on Friday, March 23, 2018. He is survived by his father Darryl Tremblay and step mother Brenda, his mother Betty (Don) Maier and his daughter Kourtnie May, her husband Dale and granddaughter Hunter-Sophia.

Darren was born in 1972, in Pincher Creek and lived there most of his life. He lived a quiet life due to illness. In his younger years and more mobile he was an avid fisherman, even tying his own flys, some of them his own unique design. He had many interests. He was an excellent artist and loved music. He played the bass guitar and ukulele and was very good at it. He was also an amateur luthier and was proficient at repairing and adjusting his guitars to bring out their maximum potential. His all-time favourite musical group was Slayer. He had an eclectic collection of movies, television series and music videos that included Red Dwarf, Mrs. Browns Boys, old time jazz musicians, Vikings, John Oliver and Dr. Who. A great joy in his life was his granddaughter Hunter-Sophia. He was thrilled when she would wave bye-bye and throw him kisses. Quote from Amit Ray: “In this vast cosmic orchestra, peace is the music of every heart. Our glory lies in understanding, listening and honouring that music.” He is gone but will never be forgotten by his family. At Darren’s request a private family service was held.
