MESSAGES for the family of Darron Michael Coster


Martyn Richardson

It’s been a privilege and a great honour for me to have had the opportunity to share both a working relationship and a friendship with Darron. Always in my thoughts and prayers. x


Steve Brown

Though and prayers with you all, RIP fellow Redcap.


Mike Leake

It’s with heart felt sympathy and condolences for your loss. I will be extremely proud to pay my respects in person next week along with many other friends and work colleagues.


Chris Amos

To Darron’s family, I remember what a great character Darron was from our time in Colchester together when we were both serving in the RMP. Darron had been on a driving assessment with the Sergeant who looked after our precious but ageing Police cars. He had been asked to pull over in a safe place at the side of the road, he promptly turned into someone’s driveway stating there was no safer space! The Sergeant was going completely apoplectic and asked Darron “What if they’re home”, in response Darron held his hand on the horn and stated “it’s fine, no ones in!”. He was such a great man and always talked about with kindness and fondly. The world is richer for having had Darron in it but poorer following his loss. With deepest condolences from a fellow Redcap xx


Charlie Farley

I served with Daz in Ireland. A great bloke; funny and helpful. It didn’t surprise me to hear his response at the M.E.N, and his humble response afterward. His legacy lives on in the many people he touched. I hope your tears and pain are soon replaced with memories and laughter.


Adam Webster

RIP Darron.


Bradley Slater

From a serving REDCAP to a retired REDCAP. Rest in Peace and Exemplo Ducemus.


Bob Jenkins

No words of mine will assuage your loss. I never knew Darron personally, but we were members of the same Corps and thus, we were family. I glowed with pride at being associated with folk like Darron when I heard of his intervention at the Manchester Arena bombing. He upheld the highest standards of the Corps – and so modestly, too. I wish that I could have met him in person. Perhaps I did and I just can’t remember. I shall remember him though. Now and until my own demise. He really did live up to the Corps motto: Lead by Example. My sincere condolences, love and best wishes to you all.


Dave Garfield

I served with Daz in Northern Ireland and we were ‘Thick as thieves’, along with Jock Sreenan and Lee Nash. We had a blast and Daz was a key player’! I never saw Daz after NI and yet I feel so much pain at his passing, even after all these years, that I cannot imagine how his nearest and dearest feel. My sincere condolences and thoughts are with you all.


Chev Orr

Dear Alison and Charlie, I cannot begin to know the loss that you have suffered and continue to suffer. I can only hope that you, in time, will come to terms with the loss. Darron was and is an amazing man! He was liked and loved by all. He will never be forgotten for his name will be mentioned in conversations for years to come. He will always be in my thoughts and through those, he will live on! Charlie will grow to be very proud of his dad as I’m sure Daz will be proud of him. Once again Alison, I am truly saddened by the loss of Daz and I wish you all the strength to get through this and be the best that you can be. Chev x


Gareth Jones

Darron looked after me from the start when I started in the training department. he was always there to help a lending hand when I needed. He will be greatly missed.


Sebastian Szymoniak

Please accept my condolences, Darron was a a very good and funny man, he was always smiling no matter and i will always remember him like that. Its a big shame he left us so quickly.

I had the privilege of working with Darron for a short time, such a lovely man he was an inspiration to us all, rest in peace Darron.


Adam Lawler, Sally and Mo Todd

Thank you for making the worst experience that little bit easier.


Mark Butterworth

Dear Alison, please accept my deepest condolences. I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Darron. He was someone who never failed to pick me up with his humour when it was most needed during my time with him in the military, as he also did for so many others who served with him. This, along with his understated professionalism, gained him the respect and friendship of many; from what I have read, this seems to have continued in his work life after completing his service. I feel privileged that I could count him as a friend. You and the family will need no reminding that he really was a true hero and gentleman, but I hope it will bring some measure of comfort to you all knowing that he was thought of in such a a way, by so many others.


Ian Coulson

What an honour it has been to have known you Dazzle. I will forever be grateful for the ‘character building’ you did back when we were on the display team together. You supervised me in my first police interview which was a Padre that had crashed a military car. We couldn’t stop laughing when the Padre had said he crashed because he had been distracted by a rather good looking woman walking down the street. You introduced me to bikes and helped me buy my first one in Colchester. You introduced me to your sister and became my brother in law. For almost 30 years you have been an inspiration and one of the only people I value the opinion of. There is a massive hole in our lives now but I know your memory will live on through Alison, Charlie, Debra, Lauren, Eileen, Mark, Myself and the hundreds of people whose lives you have touched. Rest well my friend.


Mark Birch

So sorry for your loss he was a true gent and a great person and will be sadly missed.


Daniel Fagan

Darron was a pleasure to work with and an even better friend. We had plenty of laughs together and he’s an inspiration to us all. He will be missed.


Denis Bramley

Rest in peace my friend


Shane Brown

I have no idea of the pain and suffering you must be going through at this very sad time. I hope you find strength in the future, in the knowledge that Darren was a friend to so many. He epitomised everything an ex serviceman should be and all that is great about Lancashire. It was an honour to have served with you. Please accept my sincere condolences, Shane (Panda) Brown.


Mark Welch ( Welchy)

My heart sank when I heard the news of his passing ! I was in training with Daz and spent some postings together ! Great person inside and out and always up for a good giggle! Will be there tomoz wearing my maroon beret and wishing you all my deepest sympathies at this extremely sad time! Great people never leaves us ! Greatness stays for eternity! X Welchy x


Tony Brock

Really sorry for your own loss and all of us collectively for our loss. Darren was a one off. We’ll all miss him – a lot. I can’t attend today as I’m in another country now but my very close friend Alison Duffy is attending and will pass on my condolences. Take care & RIP Darren.


Peter Lavery

I’m sorry I can’t pay my respects to Darron in person having had the real pleasure of serving with him several times. A real character who will be deeply missed my many. Thinking of you all today.


Mark Symonds

My heart felt condolences Alison and Charlie. From a 1000 klm away in Germany I/we benefited on many occasions from Darron’s wicked sense of humour, generosity, abundant knowledge and selflessness. I know you will have many heart warming memories of the man that shared you lives, hold them close today and alway.


Dominic Mitchell

Darron was the most selfless man I have ever had the pleasure of calling a true friend, I still can’t believe he has gone, he always spoke very highly and respectfully of you Luke both Alison and Charlie, and I can’t imagine what you are going through right now. My deepest heartfelt condolences to you all at this terrible time. RIP and Godspeed “Cocker” you will be missed, forever.



Alison, Charlie and your family. Dazzle was one of my oldest and closest friends. He was the best man at my wedding, he helped me through personal times of difficulty, he never judged, he offered truthful and honest opinions, he was ‘Dazzle’. I cannot begin to imagine your loss, an irreplaceable character. I am so sorry for your troubles, and send my sincere condolences. Farewell my old friend. Nicola x


Chester Kijo

Sorry that I can’t make it Darren was a top man my thoughts are with you all he will be missed.


Marty Hill

1st met you in the supermoto paddock in 2003. Quickly discovered what a p##s taker you were. Have some great memories from racing, our trips to Mettet were mega. Appreciate all the help and advice you gave me with my photography, website and life. Thanks for everything mate.


James Johnston

My thoughts are with all family and friends of Darren today. I’m sorry I can’t make it, today for a friend & Hero, R.I.P. Darren, Ride free ????


Andy Mitchell

Sorry I couldn’t be there to say goodbye, we weren’t close friends but were friends for many years through Supermoto, he was a hero of mine for his military service and Manchester heroics and I will miss his stories and humour. One thing I will never forget that Darron taught me, how to peel a banana !! All my years I was starting at the wrong end !!! and when he showed my daughters and myself one wet day many years ago at Cadwell park will stay in my memories forever, Condolences from myself and my family, RIP Darron.


Brian Chenier

I am so sorry for your loss and devastated that I can not make it today to pay my respects in person. I went through RMP training in Chichester with Daz, i remember his humour and his kindness. He lent me £10 (back in 1987) as the bank wouldn’t give a small advance to get home for the weekend. When i tried to pay him back he shrugged and said, I’ll keep it waiting and when i need it i’ll come and get it. Such a good man. God Bless, thoughts are with all of Daz’s family and friends.


Scott Abbott

Darron, was a supportive colleague and great friend. I will remember the time and conversations we had will great fondness. My thoughts are with you all. RIP Darron


The Iddons

My thoughts are with you today and ever day. Eyes right Darron R.I.P


Chris Grice

I had the privilege to serve with Darron in the Royal Military Police and like many former friends and colleagues we remained in touch through social media. Darron was such a character and personality he made an impression on all that had the good luck and opportunity to meet him. He made a positive impact in so many ways and he will live on through this in all our memories and through his family. My thoughts are with Darron and his family at this very sad time. Farewell my friend. RIP.


Stewart Taylor

I was a friend of Darron on Facebook and I was going to apply for a job at Fagan and Whalley.

So sorry I couldn’t attend today but wanted to pass on my sincere condolences. Darron always spent time having banter with myself and in terms of the supermoto paddock he will be sadly missed, but at the same time has given us so many memories which will remain with us all forever. His kindness, knowledge and sheer willingness to help anyone will also be missed. Thoughts with you all at this time and in the future.
