Let the memory of Darin be with us forever.
  • 45 years old
  • Born on May 22, 1973 .
  • Passed away on October 10, 2018 .

Darin Thomas Forth was born on May 22, 1973. The Farmers Almanac would describe being born on that day in Anchorage Alaska as being born under the sign of Salmon, and anyone born this day would love to fish. Growing up in Alaska he thrived in the outdoors, he loved to be outside and nothing brought a twinkle to his eye like camping under the stars. He played hockey and enjoyed the lifetime friendship of the people he grew up with. He is survived by a loving family and the love of his life Nicole.

He was a perfectionist and used these skills whether he was building a house in Hawaii, guiding a fishing boat in Walt Disney World or helping a relative put a roof on their house. Darin was the person who would show up in a pinch, lend a hand to a person in need or share a laugh with. 

We will miss you, Darin. Our hope for you is that you ride the wings of a butterfly, over a rainbow into the land of green golf courses, the music of the Pogues and oceans full of fish.

Your family and friends love you and you are in our hearts forever.

My heart is broken to have lost you Darin at such a young age. You will for ever be in our hearts and missed dearly. You are flying high with the angles now and with your grand parents, Dad and uncle Derrick. Until we meet again my dear nephew whom I loved very much!!! Peace be with you

I didn't know Darin or your family but wanted to share some words of encouragement. It's never easy to lose the ones we love. We can take comfort in knowing that it was never God's or our creator's original purpose for us to die. In reading your comments regarding Darin it seems he really applied this scripture in his life in Ecclesiastes 7:1 that the day of one's death can be better than their day of birth if they were able to accomplish much good in their lives. We can look to the future with hope in this promise to be fulfilled regarding all those we have lost in death in John 5:28, 29, that God looks forward to resurrecting or bringing back our loved one's to life. Until that time- deep sympathy_ Julia

Nothing but sadness here for sure. It has been a long time but will always remember the Saturday morning “Slapshot” matinees we enjoyed hanging out with everyone at the shop. Getting ready for a Saturday night skate (usually a win!) with beer flowing with our friends at Koots afterward. What I remember most? That baby face, armed with a wry, mischievous, and confident grin. My heart aches along with everyone else but rest easy now my friend and know you are greatly missed. Bart

Darin Forth I will miss you my longtime friend and brother. We go way back to fishing on the Kenai as kids . Doing your paper route illegally on a three wheeler in Kempton hills. Going to Michigan playing hockey there and highschool. We grew up together and were friends till almost the end. Even your dad Pete couldn’t scare me away. Yes you all know Pete was different;) So many stories so many good times. So many of us involved. I see a lot of bad things in my line of work but I’m here to tell you all ,this really hits home. Darin was good man with a kind heart. Funny yet subtle in his humor. Thanks for being my friend . I will never forget you man.

We did so much together over the years brother. From playing hockey, to getting into mischief, staying up all night, to going fishing (so you had hilarious stories to tell of me), to picking up girls. We shared a lot of good times and bad. You always had a great heart brother and you would give the shirt off your back to anyone. You will be sorely missed till we meet again!

I will never forget your kindness during the beginning of Phil's journey with cancer. You were there for me, even though you were struggling yourself. Thank you Darin, it meant the world to me. Linda
