 Darwin is lovingly remembered by his daughter, Amber Cole, of Carlsbad NM; granddaughter, Shalyn Cole; grandsons - Daiden Warner, Joseph and Damon Patterson; sister, Norma Sosko, of Fenton MO, and her sons - Chris, Shelby, and Slade Sosko; sister, Donna Torres, of Albuquerque NM, and her son Julian; brother, Tony Torres, and his children; step-mother, Lydia Torres; aunt, Evelyn Renfro, and her children - Shawnee, Sonya and Serena.

Darwin was born in Truth or Consequences, NM on July 3, 1959.  He graduated from Glendale High School in Phoenix, Arizona and went on to be a Reserve in the Marine Corp.  Darwin worked for a trucking company, built his own hauling company and then built his own business here in T. or C., Sierra Plumbing.

The family would like to take a moment to thank Vicky Sparman for being a wonderful friend and caregiver to Darwin during his surgeries and health issues. Vicky made sure Darwin got to his doctor appointments, took his medications, and was always there for him, even in his darkest hours. She was selfless, the epitome of a true friend and we thank her from the bottom of our hearts.

    I'm sorry to hear about the loss of Darwin. My deepest sympathies and hope the words of Psalms 46:1 can soothe your pain some. It says: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress". Our Loving God is always there to comfort us, and He has also given us the sure promise that there will be a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise! Psalms 37: 9-11, 29; Acts 24:15 ~ Imagine walking on this cleansed earth, and catching the sight of Darwin walking towards you. What a grand day that will be. No, not just a dream. A sure promise from our Grand God!!Isaias 55:11 You can find more information online at
