Obituary of Darren Elliott Minor
August 17, 1964 - November 1, 2021
Darren’s quick wit and sense of humour became our treasured memories as we said goodbye to him on Monday, November 1, 2021 at the Walker Family Cancer Centre. He will be so very sadly missed by his wife Linda (nee Rogers). He was an involved, loving and proud father to his daughters Calli and Kiera and step-daughter Abigail Green. Darren was predeceased by his parents Kenneth Minor and Carol Elliott. He will always be remembered with much love by his siblings Bonnie (Lindsay) Allison, Tammy Minor, Ken (Georgina) Minor, Stacie Lynds, Haven (Cassie) Elliott, step-mother Linda Minor, sister-in-law Lynn Cheverie, and his many nieces and nephews.
Darren was also loved by so many amazing friends who filled his life with love and laughter – you know who you are!
Whether you knew him for a short time or a lifetime, all would attest that Darren was an honest, fun loving guy, who was sure to make you laugh. Always a reliable and hard worker, Darren followed-up a 20+ year career as a welder at John Deere, Welland by going back to school to become a private investigator. Darren was an avid poker player, golfer, hunter and gun enthusiast but he was truly a softy with a big smile that will be remembered forever.
Our family appreciates everything that was done for Darren and would like to personally thank everyone who helped him live his final years on his own terms, filled with grace and dignity. He was an inspiration to us all with his positive outlook and commitment to following doctors orders. Sadly and surprisingly, he was not here as long as we had hoped. So many Healthcare workers went above and beyond caring for him throughout his seven year journey, especially the Toronto General Hospital Transplant Team, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and the Walker Family Cancer Centre. We will be forever grateful for everything you have done. Thank you!
