Joseph Benson Darlington ’39

Published in May 15, 1991, issue

JOE DIED Oct. 8,1990, in Venice, Fla., where he had been living in retirement for the past eight years. His home had been in Windsor, Conn., where he was engaged in sales throughout his career. Joe did not graduate with our Class, but always remained affiliated with us anyway. We remember he played freshman football with us and was described by Fritz Crisler as the best potential center he'd ever seen. Joe counted his 27 years as layreader at his Episcopal church in Windsor a most important and rewarding part of his life. His sports activities were tennis and golf, but in the past few years, he told us in our 50th yearbook, he had severe emphysema, which had forced him to become a "couch potato" sports enthusiast.

To his widow, Catherine, their daughter, Cathy Langrehr, their three sons, Joseph B. III, Thomas, and Peter; and Joe's sister, Elizabeth Havens; we offer our sincere sympathy.
