He is survived by his wife Ann (Brown Darby) Casey, Zephyrhills and four sons; Matthew (Marianne), of Brentwood, NH; James (Joy) Ellicott City, MD; Chet Darby, Deltona FL, and Patrick Darby of Phoenix, AZ. Dad was blessed with, and kept busy by, ten grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by son Jeffrey Darby.
