“On Sunday 30 July 2023 the world lost a beacon of light and heaven gained an angel. Five year old Alfie Darby tragically passed away after being hit by a car in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Alfie was the youngest of five children and leaves behind his parents, three brothers and a sister.
Alfie was the youngest of five children and leaves behind his parents, his brothers and a sister.
“The Darby family are well known members of our school and greater community who are gracious, kind and always welcoming. Their home is always filled with children and there is always an invite for a cup of tea or coffee when you arrive at the door.
“We would like to ease the stress on the Darby family as they process the loss of little Alfie by seeking assistance with the funeral expenses. If you can contribute it would be much appreciated. If you cannot we ask that you share this with your friends and family and keep the Darby family in your prayers.”
A collection of flowers have amassed at a tree near where Alfie was lost on Sunday. This includes a number of letters from members of the Collaroy Rugby Club.
Knowing his family will read this, we express our deepest sorrow for your incredible loss.
