It is with a wholly, sorrowful heart that I have to share the news of the passing of Joshua Darden. Josh had struggled recently with post-surgery complications and succumbed to pneumonia last evening. As you are aware, Josh’s individual commitment and dedication to The Salvation Army Hampton Roads Area Command, and particularly The Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center, was unparalleled. He has led the philanthropic community here in Hampton Roads for many years and his support for the mission of The Salvation Army is but one example for all of us to follow.
I ask that you keep Josh’s family in your prayers and Josh’s spirit in your heart. We have lost a great friend.
May God’s Peace, which passes all understanding, be with you today and always.
Captain Brett R. Meredith
Area Commander, Hampton Roads Area Command
