No public services are planned for Darren Duane Hadl, 52, Lawrence, who died Sunday, April 21, 2019, at his home. To celebrate his life, a meal will be held for family and friends at 1 pm Saturday, April 27th, at Centenary United Methodist Church, 245 N. 4th St., Lawrence.

Darren was born Sept. 16, 1966, in Lawrence, the son of Wilfred D. and Connie F. Tevis Hadl. He graduated from Lawrence High School and later attended college. He was a carpenter and a gifted artist, creating paintings, bracelets, and pool cues. He was a life scout and a member of the Kanwaka 4-H Club. In his spare time, he enjoyed playing pool and poker.

Survivors include his mother, Connie Hadl, Lawrence, and a brother, Cory Hadl, Superior, Colo. He was preceded in death by his father, Willie Hadl.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that friends pay a good deed forward or extend a hand up to someone else, as Darren did and would have done.
