I have several great memories of my uncle Darby. I used to go to cookouts at his house, many Christmases there also. He would constantly tease me but it was always in good fun and made me laugh. My father is his brother, Pat Malone, who is not listed in this obituary. Their sister Laura Loper was also not mentioned as a surviving family member. We will all miss him.
