You can help the family of Darius Maleknia

Beloved community member Darius Maleknia sadly passed away at the end of January. He had many friends who are heartbroken upon hearing of his death. 

There is even a public Facebook group in which you can post your own memories and photos of Darius. 

The family is holding his funeral at Mary Star of the Sea in La Jolla this Friday and a Celebration of life is walking distance immediately after. You can help ease the cost by helping his family and making a donation toward services. 

"Please come if you were someone who loved him, knew him, and are able to," his brother writes. "Spread the word. Thank you for supporting my family in this time so we can give him the proper funeral he deserves."

He was only 27-years-old when he passed. 

"Darius was a beautiful, kind, and gentle boy who touched all that met him with his tenacity, wit, and confidence in himself," organizers posted on the GoFundMe page

"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."

 UPDATE: There will be a celebration of life for Darius at Flicks in Hillcrest from 5 pm-8 pm, with festivities to follow.
