Services to be Saturday For Darren C. Borbridge


Darren Carlos Borbridge

Services for Darren Carlos Borbridge will be held 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10, at the Sheet’ka Kwaan Naa Kahidi community house.
Darren died Jan. 9 in a boating accident in waters off the west coast of Chichagof Island, days before his 19th birthday.
He was born Jan. 18, 2005, at SEARHC hospital, the son of James and Elizabeth (Jerauld) Borbridge.
He attended Sitka schools, finishing through an online acceleration program. He worked as a tour guide and was setting out in fishing and construction work at the time of his death.
Darren loved hiking, hunting, fishing, bonfires and trucks. He loved and cared for people, and would help those  who needed his help, no matter the money, pain or time it cost him.
Once a few years ago he got a call asking him to help his grandmother before school. He was running to her house when he got hit by a car at a crosswalk. He kept running, with cracked ribs, to his grandmother’s, and after she got his help, an ambulance found him and took him to SEARHC for treatment.
He was on a hunting trip for his family when he and his good friend, Sayer Tuzon, 18, died in the accident.
Darren is survived by his dog Rosco; his fiance, Seveah van Veen and unborn child; parents James and Elizabeth Borbridge; older brother Walter Borbridge and younger brother Tyson Ross, all of Sitka.
Also surviving are his aunts and uncles, Alan Borbridge, Donald Borbridge and Kay Simmons, all of Sitka; Harold Borbridge of Anchorage; and Todd Jerauld of Seattle.
Many cousins and friends also survive.
Saturday’s service will be potluck style, and the family suggests it be typical teen breakfast and dinner foods.
Cards and memorials may be sent to: the Borbridge family, 446 Katlian Street.
