A word from the Darjean Family Nov 1, 2018 by Paul Casey Darjean Paul Darjean, 78, Lyons, Illinois We regret to announce the passing of Paul Darjean. He was born on September 11, 1940 in Opelousas, Louisiana. He was an avid horseman. He started by riding and eventually becoming a Thoroughbred trainer. He was survived by his two sons, Paul Casey Darjean and James Stacy Darjean and two grandchildren, Casha Monet Darjean (Paul) and James Stacey Darjean Jr. and one great granddaughter Jordyn Jolie Martin. A Word from Paul Casey Darjean: Thanks for the many thoughts and prayers for my family and me. Our father was a great horseman. Especially with two-year olds. Whenever he went to the horse sales, he always had good eyes for picking horses with good confirmation and he was like an encyclopedia when it came to his knowledge of pedigree. My bother and I learned a lot from him. Pops will be deeply missed but will always live on in our hearts and souls. Rest in Peace Dad.
