Jean Willy Darius


Jean Darius 75, unfortunately passed away Monday October 3, 2022. He was the husband of Clara (Milord) Darius. Born on December 8, 1946 in his hometown of Port au prince Haiti. He was the son of the late Nelia Jean Baptiste, and Louidon Darius. In his younger years he humbly worked as a machinist to provide for his family. At the age of 35 he decided to immigrate to America in hopes to reside in New York to provide his family with a better life with more opportunities. Jean fathered five children, two sons and three beautiful daughters  Wilsny, Weedly, Wimsley,  Anne, & Lionel.  Who would later give him eight beautiful grandchildren Princella, Jacob Jr, Grace, Andrew, Winter, Ana, Wylee and Willow.  

Jean was a simple man who enjoyed good music, dancing, and indulging in a good scotch every now and then. Even though we didn’t have much, we still managed to live a good life, and I think we can all be at peace knowing that while he was here, he was well loved by his friends and his family.  For the past several years, Jean was under the care of Summit Commons nursing home in Providence, and we would like to express our gratitude for their support, compassion and guidance during this difficult time.

A Funeral Servive will be held on Saturday at 10:00am in The Butterfield Chapel 500 Pontiac Avenue Cranston. 

Visitation will be held on Friday evening from 6:00-8:00pm in The Butterfield Chapel 500 Pontiac Avenue Cranston.

Immediately following the service on Saturday morning, there will be an intimate gathering held at Jean’s eldest daughter Weedly's home located at 40 Lyndon Road Cranston. Food and refreshments will be provided to those who attend.
