Dear UBCIC Chiefs Council and friends,
We are writing to share the sad news that long-time UBCIC friend and legal counsel Roshan Danesh, has just lost his son. Darwyn Danesh was born on May 15, 2004 and passed on July 22, 2020 at the young age of 16 years old. Darwyn was a happy and engaged youth who enjoyed going to school, going on long drives, and chocolate milkshakes. He lived with Downs Syndrome and autism as well as a chronic heart condition. He is survived by Roshan, Cathy (mom) and Mary (older sister).
The family requests that you consider a donation to the Darwyn Danesh Memorial Fund held at the Victoria Foundation. The Fund will be used to support wonderful, unique children like Darwyn. Donations can be made by phoning tel:250.381.5532 or mailed payable to the Victoria Foundation, #200 – 703 Broughton Street, Victoria, BC, V8W 1E2 - please indicate on the memo line ‘Darwyn Danesh Memorial Fund’ or online at https://victoriafoundation.bc.ca/the-darwyn-danesh-memorial-fund/
