It was during these early years in Europe that Darrin met his first wife Katina and consequently his first child Abby Zinger was born in 1991. During his years in England Darrin was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer in his late 20’s.
He sold his red Carmen Ghia sportscar in 1964 to fund a year of studying and apprenticing in Kyoto, Japan and then set up a studio and shops in Jasper and in Hinton in the years to follow. The prairie boy in Frank never forgot the feeling of the wide open spaces.
At 48, he left his job and built a home on 75 acres west of the Rockies near Valemount, B. Boldly going on faith he’d find work, he took labourer jobs at the mill and CN Rail, then was fortunate to get a position at the elementary school, where he taught for another 15 years. Frank had great respect for and a way of connecting with people that left them feeling truly seen.
It was during this time that he discovered his love of sports and most particularly hockey.
Darrin played junior hockey throughout BC and eventually followed his passion to Europe.
They settled into Calgary and built a wonderful family home out in rural Calgary, in Springbank and grew their family to a total of 6 with the arrival of Ryan, Shannon and Shayla.
During the years in Calgary, Darrin fed his passion for hockey in a coaching capacity.gadgets gae of 24 gain gain or loss gallon gallons gallons and cubic inches gallons in cubic yards gallons of

cancer gave him a new perspective on life.Darrin completed his education in England @ Kingston University with a degree in Law/Accounting.He was quite industrious to do this because at that time it meant writing letters to teams all over Europe to see if there was an opportunity to try out and play.
