12/19/1989 – 4/19/2020

Darren Charles Henley, beloved fiancé, cherished son, devoted brother, loving uncle, dearly loved nephew and loyal friend left us far too soon, on 4-19-2020.
He was born on 12-19-1989 in Oak Harbor, WA. He attended Olympic Elementary, Oak Harbor Middle School, and was a 2008 graduate of Oak Harbor High School.
He found creative expression in the books he wrote and playing the harp, guitar and banjo. He taught himself, and then shared his love of creating and playing music with his family and friends, as well as playing music for the elderly at Spring Hill Assisted Living. He enjoyed busking and showcasing his music at the Renaissance Faire.
As a valued employee of the BBQ Joint in Oak Harbor for nearly 10 years, he became Kitchen Manager in 2015.
Darren dearly loved Curtis, his family, friends and his “work family”, and touched each of us profoundly with his kind heart, wisdom, generosity and humor.
He loved his country and was always the first to lend a hand to those in need. He always found a way to serve and it truly came from his heart.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Charles and Rita Henley, his “other” grandpa, Ed Herbel, and his great-uncle, Robert Goodman.
He is survived by the love of his life and fiancé, Curtis Amsler, his parents, David and Rox-Ann Henley of Oak Harbor, WA, a sister and brother-in-law, Sabrina and Dustin Wetzsteon, and nephews Trenton, Draven and Lincoln, one niece, Ciera, and his brother, Brenton Henley, all of Marysville, WA, as well as many aunts and uncles, cousins and cherished friends.
Final arrangements were made by Whidbey Memorial Funeral Home.

“…Tell them of my love and tell them of my pain and tell them of my hope, which still lives. For this is all I have and all I am and all I ask.” – Stephen King, The Dark Tower Vol. VII

Play on, sweet Darren…
