Darrin James Elwood 10/22/1991 ~ 7/3/2010 Tyler Jordan Blais 11/29/1992 ~ 7/3/2010 Stage right. Check. Stage left. Check. The curtain is rising and Tyler and Darrin are the stars. Independence Day took on a whole new meaning once our stars exited center stage and joined the band. Elvis should be so lucky to share the spotlight with such talented, energetic and loving boys as Tyler and Darrin.Doing what best friends do best, they had an opportunity to enjoy the time that we all long for, yet seldom find. Tyler and Darrin shared a bond that is hard to find and even harder to define. A moment is all that separates our love from our loss. Their last days were spent together on an epic road trip to include Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon and apparently, three or four deer! Whether it was camping under the stars, jammin' with friends or helping those among us that need it most, they made the most of life and their chronology reflects as much. Tyler had a knack for pictures and videos while Darrin's art and hysterical videos kept us in awe. Their accomplishments in music served them well and they loved any opportunity to put on a show. Kearns and Prescott will not be the same without the metal sounds of a jam done right. Tyler is survived by his parents, Ron and Lucinda Blais, sisters Amanda and Megan, grandma Denice, grandpa Lorald, grandparents Sherryll and Dave Coleman, aunts Chanta, Amber, Laura, and uncles Kent, Luke, Larry and Scooter. His many friends and cousins will surely miss him. He was preceded in death by grandpa Joe and great-grandma Clawson. Darrin is survived by his mother, Ginger Boaz and stepfather Chuck, brothers Travis and Chance, sister Ashley and grandma Sharon. Best friend Anthony and girlfriend Becca, great-grandma Lois, grandpa Tom, aunt Leslie (Richard), uncles Thomas, Elton, Bob, Bill (Dess), aunts Tina, Annette and Michelle, his father Brad Elwood, grandma Dorothy, grandpa Ray, uncle Al (Jeanie), uncle Steve (Rhonda), uncle Brett (Charla) and lots of cousins and friends who love him.
