Darrin Kasper

d. November 27, 2022


Darrin Gene Kasper passed away on Thanksgiving, after a loving day with family and friends, at his home under the shelter of the mountains he loved. He was 56. Darrin is survived by his beloved son Connor Kasper, a student at Northern Arizona University, and his former partner, Sharon Leach.

He is predeceased by his father Jack Kasper and his sweet dogs, Sadie, Shortie and Kayla. Known as the red-headed cowboy, Darrin was a rider on the miniseries Into the West. He hunted, was an excellent fisherman, and loved going down to the Rio Grande with his son and dogs. He helped anyone who asked and was known and loved by his community in San Cristobal valley. Born in South Dakota, raised in Yuma, Salt Lake City and New Jersey, he made friends wherever he went and raised a few eyebrows along the way. Darrin joined the Navy after high school and served active duty until moving to Amarillo, Texas where he was a bull-rider. Drawn to New Mexico, he moved to Red River and was a horse guide in Angel Fire. He built a straw bale timber frame home for his family, trained horses and worked for contractors throughout Taos for 20 years. His heart like his truck was big and sometimes battered, but always strong.

The family of Darrin Gene Kasper has entrusted the care of their loved one to DeVargas Funeral Home of Taos.  866-657-4019
