Wesley Andrew Darby Obituary
Darby, Wesley Andrew
Wesley Andrew Darby , AKA "Pastor Daddy Darby" Born September 19, 1928, Born Again and called to serve in February, 1944. He began his Ministry in 1946, continued in ministry until Monday, December 14, 2015, when he was taken from us and entered Heaven. He is joining his mother, father, brothers, sister and youngest daughter, family and faithful friends, who he helped lead to Christ. He is survived by his bride of almost 70 yrs, Donna (Bice) Darby, his daughters: Carol Eymann, Lorna Darby, Elizabeth Bass, and Andrea Voss, their respective spouses, eleven grandchildren and twenty-two great grandchildren. After pastoring in Flagstaff and Clifton, he accepted the pastorate at West High Baptist Church, Phoenix, AZ in August, 1955, where he continued to serve and assist after he retired - twice. Along with Pastoring, he taught at Southwestern Baptist Bible College, which he was instrumental in founding. He also served on many committees and boards, assisting with major projects for multiple organizations in the greater Phoenix area. It is safe to say, Pastor Darby served, loved, mentored, and prayed for thousands of people over the years, many who are serving in ministry. He was an amazing man who did ALL that God called him to do. A public memorial service will be held in March, at West High Baptist Church. Please contact the church for more information. The family requests, in lieu of flowers, please support your local minister. For more information please visit www.chapelofthechimesmortuary.com
