On Wednesday, January 13, 2021 Andre Luther Darden, loving husband and friend, passed away at the age of 65 after a brief struggle with kidney cancer.
Andre was born in Washington, D.C. and was a very proud US Army Veteran who served honorably during the Iranian Revolution of 1978-1979. After his military service Andre continued his career in Information Technology as owner of Island Telecom LLC.
Andre was a gentle man known for his kind and compassionate spirit, full of life and love. His passions included golfing, travelling, and enjoying a day at the beach.
Andre is preceded in death by his mother Geraldine and sister Theresa.
Andre is survived by his wife of 23 years, Vitra Darden; his aunt, Juanita and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews in the USA and Trinidad.
A memorial service will be held later, and his ashes spread on his favorite beach in the Caribbean.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the American Kidney Foundation website kidneyfund.org

Vernon Harris says
Andre and I met at a chamber of commerce meeting back in 2008 when I moved my business from Alpharetta to Gwinnett County. Andre didn’t just become a business partner and friend but he became my brother and Vitra my sister. Andre was always there whenever I needed him and I still reach for the phone to call him now. I’m glad I got a chance to tell him that I Loved him before he left and I am surely going to miss my friend.
Vitra, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time! <a href = "https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/13.0.1/svg/1f64f-1f3fb.svg"
