On Saturday morning, October 6, 2012 over 500 people that included, family, friends and classmates attended the funeral church service for Milton High’s own Darner Alteon. The service took place at Tabernacle Baptist Congregation, Roslindale.
Darner was tragically involved in a car accident two weeks earlier and succumbed to his injuries.
The moving service included a tribute by his older brother, Junior, who read a short biography:
“Darner Alteon, son of Luckner and Darline Brutus, was born on January 15, 1992 at Boston City Hospital. He completed his studies at Henry Grew School in Hyde Park. He then went to Milton High School where he received his diploma. He was a Track-and-Field star at Milton High School and was rewarded with several metals, testimony to his athletic excellence. After graduating from Milton High School (2010), he was accepted at the prestigious Regis College where he was pursuing a degree in International Relations. At Regis, Darner participated in many sports, including football and, with his determination in all he does, he would defiantly make it to the NFL. And watching Darner on the football field would make all of us football fans very happy and our Sunday afternoons more enjoyable. Darner loved music and was a member of the DellVi group. He used his singing talents to bring happiness to the members of his church. Darner spent part of his spare time writing songs and improving his singing talent. Darner was both singer and songwriter.”
Darner’s younger brother Luckas ended his moving tribute to his brother saying, “Darner always wanted to be famous. Well Darner you are now famous look out at all the people here who loved you”.
Darner is survived by his sisters Knerline and Samarah, his brothers Junior, and Luckas, and his parents Luckner Alteon, Darline Brutus and Frantz Fecu. Darner was buried at Cedar Grove Cemetery, Dorchester.
