Rest in peace Darren

September 27th, 2007 by Raj

Tonight my Mum informed me that my next-door neighbour of 18 years in Port Lincoln, Darren Mavromatis has passed away.

Darren was five years older than me and for the majority of my childhood I looked up to him as if he were a legend. I’m sure at times I was an annoyance to him, waking him up at ridiculous hours on a Saturday morning to play cricket or use his computer, but Darren never protested and always looked after me.

I will never forget how Darren was like a big brother to me, he put me in pads to face my first real cricket ball, taught me how to lean when finishing a sprinting race, we’d saw open his Dad’s golf balls so we could get the super ball out of the middle and he grew my passion for art by teaching me how to draw.

After he left Port Lincoln we lost touch but have seen each other from time to time since always remaining a good friend to me. Darren, you will be truly missed, you’ve been taken from us all far too young and I regret not seeing you more often.

To Aunty Nita, Angie and Kylie my deepest condolences, my heart goes out to you all.

Rest in peace my friend, you will be sorely missed.
