Loved to dance, Darren was a little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n roll. All the girls would get a turn around the dance floor. Loved to travel, when he reached the Montana border, the cowboy hat came on. That must have come from all the John Wayne movies he liked to watch. He loved to shoot pool. He had his very own stick. Once he started he didn't want to quit. He loved the MN Twins, the Vikings, and he loved WWF wrestling.
