In memoriam: Constable Simon Graham Darke, Tasmania Police, died suddenly on 6th February 2019. He was 45 years old.

Constable Simon Darke served as a valued member of Tasmania Police for ten years, most recently with Southern Road and Public Order Services.

He was a talented artist, bicycle racer, a caring and kind police officer, adored dad, loving son and brother. A great man who was snatched from us too soon.

He answered the call, never hesitated to help people, and he will forever live through all whose lives he touched. May he rest in peace and intercede on our behalf.

We extend our deepest sympathies to his young family and friends. May care and love of those around you provide comfort to get you through the days and years ahead.

Gone from our sight but not from our hearts.


Simon, a great artist, also owned ‘Spider Signs’ although that business was de-registered on 3 November 2008.
