Darrin Thomas White

October 4, 1967 ~ August 7, 2020

Darrin Thomas White, 52, passed away August 7th, 2020 in Sandy, Utah. Darrin was born to Frank and Patricia White in Salt Lake City, Utah on October 4th, 1967. He married the love of his life, Cindy, on September 4th, 1987 (later divorced). Together they raised three children.

Darrin played baseball in his youth. He always said he could have “made it big”. He loved muscle cars, especially Mustangs (always a Ford man). He loved football and one of his greatest joys in life was taunting his daughter Alisa about their NFL team rivalries. Darrin had a dry sense of humor. While this was not always apparent, those that were close to him found him amusing. He had a huge heart and would have done anything for those he loved. One of Darrin’s greatest roles was being “Papa” to his six grandchildren.

Darrin is survived by his three children Jennie (Ryan), Aarin (Hailey), and Alisa (Sharrod); six grandchildren Jordan, Makayla, Jackson, Nolan, Hayden, and Saylor, mother Patricia; siblings Eric and Georgia; and nieces and nephews Christian, Lizzy, Adrienne, Sarah, and Manar. He was preceded in death by his father Frank (1992) and brother Patrick (2016).

Private family services were held at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 E. Dimple Dell Road, Sandy.


I’m so sorry for your loss! Darrin and Pat were my brother Clays best friends. Darrin was always sweet to me. I’m sure Clay and Pat were there to great him, and so happy to see him.

I live in unit # 11 over by Laurinda's. I met Darrin through Laurinda while he was living with her. Darrin and I became very close friends. He became my best friend and the one I could always count on. Darrin helped my daughter and I out with numerous things. Darrin would usually come over with his friend Austin and visit in the evening. Darrin called Austin "Dough Head", laughing. I had to pull an arm and leg to get Darrin to attend Austin's "WAKE" at Wheeler Farm. I remember all the great conversations we use to have sharing on a very small wood bench sitting outside Laurinda's loccated by the garbage hoping that Laurinda would not come out side. Darrin touched my ❤️ in so many ways. Darrin would often talk about the only women he ever loved that he married, his younger brother, his past, his niece, his sister, his future when he got his money. So many tears I have dropped for the nicest man I have ever met in my life. I send LOVE to your family. GOD BLESS
