July 3, 1965 — Nov. 13, 2011
Darin was an amazing husband, father, musician and friend to many people. He had a sense of humor and joy for the simple things and it seemed that his most important goal in life was to bring happiness and support to everyone around him. If his sense of humor wasn’t enough, his music could surely bring a smile to anyone’s face. He was a drummer, singer, songwriter, guitarist and he could play just about any genre of music you asked for not only with great skill, but an enthusiasm that was contagious. Darin believed in the power of music and in his memory in 2012, we created the Darin Rome Memorial Scholarship and have awarded five scholarships to graduating students in Pagosa who have a passion for music and the arts. We will continue his scholarship fund in his memory and we look forward to seeing artists of the future from Pagosa pursue their dreams. If you would like to donate to the scholarship fund, it is held at ASE (Archuleta Scholarship in Escrow) under Darin’s name.
With love, the Rome family
