I have such fond memories of my Uncle A. My family went to Modesto for so many warm holidays and every time we arrived, we would walk out the back door of the house and there he would be, with a huge smile, BBQ'ing the best Shish Kabob ever. His huge heart and gentle way will stay with me forever. My thoughts and prayers are with the Darpinian Family, now and always.
Our deepest sympathy to all of the family.
Bless You and Yours, Always- The Bud & Jean Hawley Clan. I know there must have been a wonderful welcoming committee (party) in Heaven! The Hawley Ranch Families are blessed with many fond memories of you and especially your parents. Personally, I would love to visit your parents with my Grandma Jean during peach season… And to watch your mom roll the out the pie dough was a treat… Prayers your way.
MY SYMPATHY TO ALL THE FAMILY, I HAVE GREAT MEMOIRS OF THE RANCH WITH A AND MY DAD. PHIL WADDY
I grew up in Riverbank in the 50's & 60's, and worked at K Darpinian's for 5 summers in the dry yard, propping trees, picking peaches and swamping. I have very fond memories of that time and remember A and Si very well. They were very instrumental in giving young teens like me a good start in life creating good and valuable work ethics. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Dear Jane and Joan, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad and your Mum ... I still make your Mum's Peach Cobbler ... I will keep your family in my prayers ... Pat (Takami of the Diet Center)
As a Modesto High teenager in the late 1950s, I worked several summers for K. Darpinian and sons. I remember "A", as we called him, quite well, and his brother Si. They were good people and good to work for. RIP. Eric Newsom
