He was a 1951 graduate of the former Hershey Vocational High School. Darwin served with the U.S. Army as a tank driver during the Korean War, and as an Engineer stationed in Germany. He was a member of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, Hummelstown, where he served on the Church Council. Darwin volunteered on the South Londonderry Township Planning Commission from 1969 to 2012. He enjoyed playing golf, reading, hunting and fishing.

Vickie and family. I am so sorry to hear your Dad has joined your mom in Heaven. He had to be a great man with everything he accomplished in life! Raising you to be the great woman you are also says a lot about your Dad. Hold all the memories close to your heart and treasure them. May they give you peace during this time. Remember loved ones are never really gone, they are still with you just in a different way. Your mom and dad are once again together and watching over you and your family. HUGS!
