DARREN ROBERT BURDES (WOODY)
October 31, 1973 – April 15, 2010
It is with profound sadness that the family announces the unexpected death of Darren. He will be forever remembered and deeply missed by his soulmate, Ronda Dennison; his sons, Montana and Skyler Burdes; sister, Laurie (Bruce) Goff of Lipton, SK; brother, John Burdes of Westside Rd, BC; sister, Shannon Burdes of Vernon, BC; brother, Craig (Jenni) Burdes of Nanaimo, BC; Uncle Poke, Clarence Robert Burdes (Annabel) of Tanzania, South Africa; Auntie Maureen and cousins, Renee (Darren) Pain, Jeaneen (Danny) Briner and Nicole Borges, all of BC; nieces and nephews, Marianne and Cephai James, Celine, Raya and Caldyn; as well as many, many friends everywhere.
Darren was predeceased by his loving parents, Jim and Donna Burdes; and his special nephew, Jimmy Evan Masters.
He was born in Vancouver, BC and raised in the Okanagan. Darren loved life and had an amazing sense of humor. He made everybody he met laugh. He loved baseball and golfing with his boys. He was a hard worker with a huge heart who enjoyed being outdoors. A celebration of Darren’s life will be held in Vernon, BC at a later date. In lieu of flowers, plant a tree and let it grow.
