Darrie Christmas, 57, peacefully passed away with his wife by his side on Sunday, October 04, 2020 at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Darrie was born August 07, 1963 in Americus, Georgia to the late Jessie Biggins and Christine Christmas. Darrie lived in Savannah, Ga and in 1989, he relocated to New Jersey. In 1997, he and his wife, Dolores settled in Somerset, NJ.

Darrie attended Savannah State College, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering. Upon his relocation to NJ, Darrie started his career at Bellcore/Telcordia where he met his lovely wife. He then worked for C.R. Bard as a software engineer, then Ethicon as an IT manager and later worked at Johnson and Johnson as a systems architect.

Darrie was a hard worker who loved his job. He was considered “tech-savvy” and very analytical. Darrie had a vast knowledge of information which he was always willing to share especially to his nieces and nephews. He was very laid back and never hesitated to help his family in any way he can. He enjoyed watching sports, cooking shows and Sci-fi and travelling with his wife.

Darrie is survived by his wife of 28 years, Dolores Christmas; his brothers, Eskie, Clarence and Charles Christmas; his sister, Shirley Christmas and a host of nieces and nephews and in-laws.

My sincerest condolences to all who loved Darrie. Darrie was one of the first people I met when joining J&J and I was taken immediately by his calm demeanor and sensibility. He was unique and brilliant and a pleasure to be around. Rest easy old friend.
