Darren S. Zanes

Darren S. Zanes

Four wheels move the body; two wheels move the soul. Darren was never happier then when he headed out on the highway, looking for adventure and whatever came his way, though he was known as much for his safety as his speed. Beyond riding he was also the chaplain for his club, The Inner Circle. If not out on his bike he’d most likely be involved with his daughter’s horse and her competitive riding at the Dream Park or the Gloucester County Fair. He worked for Godwin Pumps in quality control for 30 years.
He is survived by his estranged wife, Jennifer; his daughter, Jenica Zanes; his mother, Patti Gibbons; his brothers, Bobby (Becky) and Joey (Maggie); his step-mother, Debbie Zanes Kirkman; his friend, Laurene “Ski” Cornellier; and a large extended family.
Memorial service celebrating 51 great years will be held on Sunday June 26 Starting at 2 p.m. at VFW Post 8840, Margaret Street, Penns Grove 08069 where there will be a 3 p.m. service. Donations to National Alliance on Mental Illness (donate.nami.org) will be appreciated.

    Darren you were an amazing person. I loved you very much. I have so many great memories with you. I will miss you beyond words. I feel so lost without you. My heart is shattered. I don’t think I will ever understand why????💔💔💔💔 but knowing you are at rest finally gives me some peace….

    Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal. My sincere sympathy.

  3. Rosemary Kopp says:

    Darren, I wish that I knew your pain and could help take it away. Words are not my forte so I can only think to quote a song, (Here Today – Paul McCartney:

    “What about the night we cried
    Because there wasn’t any reason left to keep it all inside?
    Never understood a word
    But you were always there with a smile

    And if I say
    I really loved you
    And was glad you came along
    Then you were here today
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    For you were in my song”

    I Love You Darren!

    Until we meet again…..

    Tell John I said “Hi” 🙂
