Darrin Michael Wood

Post Independent
Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Darrin Wood, beloved son, brother, uncle, nephew, grandson and friend passed away on Aug. 13, 2009, at the age of twenty-two. Darrin was born to Dan and Jeanie Wood on March 14, 1987, in Page, Arizona. He was survived by his parents, sisters Rachel Burrow and Michelle Costa, brother-in-law William Burrow, nieces Nicolette Burrow and Kuulei Costa, nephew Keegan Burrow, grandparents, uncles, aunts and other family members.

Darrin was both curious and adventurous. Having recently moved from Blythe, California, to Glenwood Springs, Colorado, he continued to enjoy the outdoors and all the opportunities it offered including fishing, surfing, wake-boarding and desert four-wheeling. His love for the outdoors could only be surpassed by his love and compassion for both his family and friends. He touched many lives on so many levels.

Over the past year and half, while working for the same company, he gained the respect of his colleagues. He was a valuable asset to the company and will be greatly missed.

Darrin was a beautiful and creative young man- so full of life – at any given moment making people laugh. He was very family oriented and enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephew, along with numerous other friends. Darrin was always willing to help and would give the “shirt off his back” if he felt it was needed. He was always ready to give of himself at any time.

Darrin will be dearly missed by all those whose lives he has touched. His family and friends look forward to the resurrection when they will be reunited.

Memorial services will be held on Saturday, Aug. 22 at 1 p.m. in the Eagle County Building located at 20 Eagle County Road in El Jebel, Colorado.
