I created this fundraiser on behalf of Darnell’s’ sister, Darnice and for their family.  We have worked/known each other for 5 years.  She is a beautiful, faithful human that loved and was so proud of her Brother.   

Deputy Darnell Calhoun, 30, made the ultimate sacrifice this past Friday 1/13 afternoon while responding to a domestic violence and child custody call in Lake Elsinore. He’s a husband, a son, a father and brother and dear friend to so many. He leaves behind his wife, Vanessa , 2 young sons and another son on the way. He always was a service to others and taking the ultimate sacrifice for the good of his community will not be forgotten.

He was so young and had so much to live for.  Darnell started real estate in 2017, then transitioned over to serve other as a Deputy Sheriff in San Diego County in 2019, then was stationed to Lake Elsinore when he started with Riverside county late last year.  This is Such a tragic and senseless loss. We are all hurting with this news and heartbroken.

There are so many shared memories with family, friends and colleagues. We are all in shock.
There is not one person with one negative thing to say about him. He was the most cheerful, the most positive, the most good-hearted, wholesome man you could imagine.

His family are also pillars in the Murrieta community with a strong Christian faith (please go support their family owned business, Calhoun’s Family Texas BBQ).  They all lead by example always there to guide and be there for others. Darnell loved and served Jesus with his church community joyfully. He will be remembered as a son, a brother, a grandson, a nephew, a cousin, a son-in-law, a brother-in-law, and a loyal friend. 

Blessed are the Peacemakers, for they shall be called the Children of God. Matthew 5:9

With your donations, we hope to help with funeral expenses and for life expenses for his family. We truly are blessed and honored to have known him. Darnell will be dearly missed. Our hearts and prayers go out to the Calhoun family. Thank you for your generous show of love and support.

Sincerely, The Suthers Family
