I am part of the Eastern Collegiate Racquetball Conference(ECRC) Alumni Family now (Alumnus from UMass Lowell) but I had the honor of playing on the same court as Daren. Daren and I would always be joking around off the courts and his radiant smile was truly contagious. While we were playing on or off the courts, he was always respectful and demonstrated the highest integrity. When I heard about his passing, I was choked up and couldn’t believe what happened. I only knew Daren through the ECRC but we developed a distant friendship, a camaraderie that was special. My heart and thoughts go out to the Hidalgo family while I wish you all the best in the healing process. Thank you for your time.
