Born to Homer and Lillian Darden in Cheyenne, Wyoming. I don't see him on either the UD or UW all-time rosters. He did play baseball at UW in 1942, but I don't see any basketball time there yet. Darden served as the longtime basketball and baseball coach at CSM. He was a World War 2 veteran.

He married Genevieve Peters (1927-2011) and they had one daughter, Donna (1950-1995).
