Hollingshead Darelli, Jarid was born on March 22, 1980 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Howard and Gaylynn Hollingshead. He was famous for his infectious smile, great sense of humor, and kindness toward everybody he met. Ever compassionate, Jarid was a rare and gentle soul who made everything more beautiful he touched. The world was so much brighter because of him. He had recently married the love of his life and best friend, Pablo Darelli, and was eagerly building a life with him in Florida, where the couple had moved to just one year before. Tragically, Jarid was taken from us far too soon on December 31, 2022 at the age of 42. They say the candle that burns twice as bright only lasts half as long. Jarid proved this metaphor, he was the brightest of lights and he brought joy, friendship, and warmth to all who knew him. We will love and miss him always, though he lives on forever in our hearts.
He is survived by his husband Pablo Darelli.
Memorial mass will be held Saturday February 4, 2023 at 2:00pm at Taylor Funeral Home.

He was a lovely person and I know Pablo added immeasurable joy to his life. I will never forget such a kind soul and I give my condolences to Pablo and hope he finds the strength to be everything Jarid always believed Pablo could be. Both dear and deeply loved people. Friends and brothers to me. I grieve that the world has lost such a light and also celebrate the wonderful gift that we all were given to have shared some of our lives with such a beautiful and loving soul. We who knew him are each of us better for having had that honor. And Pablo, you are not alone.

Jarid was one of the best people I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. We worked together in Utah and I can attest that those of us here, both his family and friends, are heartbroken. His smile is contagious and I will never forget him. May he rest in peace until we meet again! Love you Jarid!!

He was loved by an enormous group of people here in Utah. He has a brother, sister, nieces, nephews, that miss and cared for him dearly. Unfortunately we were unable to do a funeral with a body here in Utah, due to unfortunate circumstances, but we did have a wonderful celebration of life which included hundreds of people that Jarid made wonderful impacts on. He had such a beautiful smile, a genuine and loving soul, plus a heart of gold. He’s gone too soon and we will miss him everyday. Your family can’t wait to see you again, say Hi to grandma for us. We love you sooooo much!

The best thing you can say about someone is that they made a difference in your life by making it better, by making you better. Jarid is that to me. Not a day went by when I saw him that he didn’t teach me something through his kindness, patience and concern for others. I had many, many experiences contemplating how I could emulate him more, both in the way I viewed the world and how I treated others.
He is truly one of the best people I have had the privilege to know in my life. I will miss him and all who knew him will as well. The world needs more Jarid’s in it. Thankfully, I have so many memories and had so much time spent with him that I have a lot to reflect on, continue to learn, and smile about.
Thanks Jarid for making my life and others better. I will miss you, we will all miss you.

Jarid was a wonderful man with a very kind heart. He always had a smile on his face and lit up every room he walked in to. He had a kind word or a friendly hello for everyone he came across. He will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends here in Utah. The world would be a much better place if we had more people like Jarid.
