He is survived by older brother Darrell (Carla) Haskin and sister Debby Haskin. He is also survived by his children: Joseph (Karissa), Jennifer, Michael (Nadine) and Madison Haskin, and his five grandchildren: Monty, Kaden, Odessa, Kaiya and Ila. He shared these children and grandchildren with former wife Doris Elaine Haskin, with whom he maintained a close friendship throughout his life.

Darren was a remarkable man of great faith. He was an Eagle Scout and served in the Madrid, Spain Mission for the LDS Church. He held two college degrees and always excelled professionally in all positions held. As a natural born leader, he was always quick to get promoted. He also received countless prestigious awards, along with bonuses, being sent on exotic trips and sent to private concerts. Darren was an extraordinary spirit with immeasurable strength, faith and dignity as well as an exceptional father and friend. He was a uniquely precious and special gift to this world and will be sorely missed by so many.
