We regret to announce the passing of Maurice Clayton Michael Darjes, 42, on Thursday, Nov. 22, 2012.
Born in Ontario on Oct. 11, 1970, he was the son of the late Clayton Darjes and Gertrude Fidgen.
Maurice was a community outreach minister for several years. He was always happy leading a service. He had a fondness for the Salvation Army and Harvest House in both Glace Bay and North Sydney.
He was a big animal lover, especially dogs, loved the outdoors and was a very unique person. He was a hero to his son, Garry.
Maurice had had a rough life growing up. Toward the end of his life, his demeanour had changed toward life and family. He was loved and respected by many people and will never be forgotten. We miss Maurice dearly and we all have a special place in our hearts for him.
