Celebrating the Life of Darren Lee Farwell!

Celebrating the Life of Darren Lee Farwell!

Over the years, UV Skinz has helped to protect many kids and adults from the harmful effects of the sun’s rays because one man lived and spread his love of life with all who knew him. Today we celebrate the life and courage of Darren Lee Farwell who lost his battle with melanoma in 2001. Not only was Darren an avid outdoorsman, who loved to surf and snowboard, he was a dedicated father to his three sons, Ethan, Seth and Caleb, as well as a loving husband to his wife, Rhonda.

Rhonda remembers the lessons that Darren taught her and their three young boys:

“Darren was a lover of life. I have never met anyone with such a deep soul. He changed my life, in more ways than I can count. I was always fascinated to be able to see life through his eyes, as he had such a unique and intriguing viewpoint. He broadened my perspectives, he made me laugh every day with his fun and crazy sense of humor, and he loved me SO DEEPLY. I knew this, I felt this every day, and I loved him for this. I truly know how blessed I am to have had such a deep love in my life and I am grateful for the 10 years we had together and for the three beautiful boys he gave me.
It also keeps me going (and takes my breath away!) to see Darren in each of the three boys. He lives on in their spirits, their antics, and their genetic features that are so strong and similar to Darren’s. This gives me strength.”

Happy 49th Birthday Darren! Your love of life, inspiration, and fun-loving spirit continues to be the driving force behind UV Skinz mission to get families covered!

With love,

The UV Skinz Family
