Special thanks to Dr. DaSilva.

For over two decades, Darcy dedicated his life to education in the United States where he retired honorably in 2015. He was more than just a teacher; he was a mentor, a guide, and a source of inspiration to countless students. His commitment to cultivating young minds and instilling a love for learning transcended the classroom, leaving an indelible mark on generations of students who are now successful adults thanks to his unwavering dedication.

Beyond the classroom, Darcy was an active member of the Kiwanis Club in Barbados. His involvement in this organization showcased his passion for community service as well as the desire to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. Darcy spearheaded numerous initiatives, improving the well-being of countless individuals in his community. His impact was felt far and wide, and his compassion was a guiding light for us all.

As a prominent member of the Democratic Labour Party, he was a steadfast advocate for the betterment of our society. His contributions to the party’s goals and principles were invaluable, and his leadership was characterized by integrity and a genuine desire to see positive change in our beloved nation. Darcy will be remembered not only for his professional achievements but also for his kindness, warmth, and unwavering commitment to the betterment of humanity. His loss leaves a void that can never be filled, but his memory will continue to inspire us all.
A service of celebration and thanksgiving will be held on Thursday, September 7 at St. Leornard’s Anglican Church, where relatives and friends are asked to meet at 2:30 p.m. for the service. The cortege will then proceed to Westbury Cemetery for the interment. Flowers may be sent to Lyndhurst Funeral Home no later than 12:00 noon on Thursday.

My deepest condolences to all of Darcy’s family. I worked with him for many years at PS 335 in Brooklyn and remember him so fondly. Never a moment with him that did not involve lots of laughter and great conversation. He also always brought me some of his delicious fish cakes whenever he made them! I have missed him since he retired and was so sad to hear of his passing. May he rest in peace and may the family find comfort in your memories of him.
