Kevin Jack Darling, age 60, passed away August 27, 2023.  Kevin is survived by his wife Lisa, daughter Josie (Christian Kappler); brothers Ric (Sharon) Darling, Vern Tyrrell (Cindy Nord), Guy (Marie) Tyrrell; sister Tammy (Jim) Hill; brother-in-law Rick (Renee) Rush; nieces and nephews Danny (Kristin) Hinrichsen, JD (Mandy) Hill, Bryanne Clark, Kali (Tyler) Cox, Vanessa Alfaro, Brian Wright, Caleb (Jordan) Darling, Ian Darling, Danielle Tyrrell, Colin Tyrrell, Caden Tyrrell, Liam Tyrrell and his special dog Goliath. Kevin was predeceased by his parents Stan and Fannie Tyrrell and sister Sandy Hinrichsen.

Kevin was an avid hunter.  His passion was chasing whitetails.  He enjoyed watching Josie care for and raise her barrel horses and attending National Barrel Horse Association events at the local, regional and national level.  Kevin was the owner/operator of Darling’s Forest Products.  He was also a skilled self-taught craftsman in all trades—electrical, carpentry, masonry, plumbing, and automotive.  Kevin had a huge heart and a zest for life.  

The caring and professional work of the Lourdes Hospice team is deeply appreciated.  Thank you, Hannah, Christa, Renee, Dawn, Joanna, Tristan, Brenda and Allyssa.  A special thank you to Tim from Adapted Health for your patience and kindness.

A private celebration of life will be hosted by the family on September 1, 2023.  In lieu of flowers, please donate to Lourdes Hospice by personal check made payable to Lourdes Hospice and mailed to Lourdes Hospice, 4102 Old Vestal Road, Vestal NY 13850.
