Darren Patrick Ginty
February, 1972 – November 6, 2016
Darren Patrick Ginty, age 44, passed away in his sleep, at his home, on Sunday, November 6, 2016. His death was sudden, unexpected, and tragic. It appears that he succumbed to a diabetic blood sugar spike, which went unnoticed. His co-workers helped Darren’s family to discover that Darren had slipped away from this life, when he didn’t arrive at work on Monday, November 7, 2016.

He was raised in Snohomish, WA, where he attended Zion Lutheran School, Cathcart Elememtary, Valley View Junior High, and graduated from Snohomish High School Class of 1990. Darren attended ITT Technical college after high school, and worked at Safeco Insurance in Redmond WA, where he met and married Kathleen Holloway Gonzalez in 1995. Darren completed his college degree in Computer Aided Drafting at Charter College in Anchorage, Alaska 1998.
Immediately upon graduation, Darren was hired to work at Anvil Corporation, where he worked for around 15 years. Most recently, Darren worked for CH2M-Hill as a senior pipe designer, and master sarcastic jokester among his friends!
