Help Darius' Family With Funeral & Other Expenses

Our beloved Darius Maleknia has passed on at the age of 27 and we are raising money to help the family cover the cost of his funeral expenses and celebration of life, which will be held on Friday, February 7, at his hometown in La Jolla. Darius was a beautiful, kind, and gentle boy who touched all that met him with his tenacity, wit, and confidence in himself. He survived by his mother, father, two brothers, sister, and friends who loved and cherished him. Darius overcame the challenges life threw at him, including his battle with epilepsy that ultimately claimed his life, and was a nurse who was joyful in his success at the peak of his life. Your contributions to the family will help them in the time of his passing. Thank you.
