In Memory

Michael Edgar Darling

Michael Edgar Darling passed away in Ventura on January 8, 2014 after a lengthy illness. His family was at his side as they had been during the last weeks of his life. Michael was born on December 21, 1948, in Santa Barbara and spent most of his life in Ojai. He graduated from Nordhoff High School in 1967 and worked for Job Corps before being hired by Ventura Unified School District where he worked for several years.

After his retirement he enjoyed being with his family and later caring for his mother. He was a great fan of television, especially detective shows and old-time comedies. He enjoyed both country and classical music and his daily Bible reading. He was preceded in death by his parents, Edgar and Pauline Darling. He is survived by brothers Gary (Sandy) Miller of Carmichael and Jeffrey (Vicki) Darling of Taft. He also leaves behind two nieces, a nephew, and several cousins. 

The family is grateful to friends, caregivers, and the medical staffs at Ojai and Ventura Community hospitals for the care, compassion, and love they showed Michael during his long illness. A gravesite service will be held January 17 at 11 a.m. at Santa Barbara Cemetery

Michael was always cool and calm with a good sense of humor.  I will always remember him as a friend.

Rest in peace as you walk on the wind my friend.
