Dr. George Lester Darrow DENVER - Dr. George Lester Darrow, age 58 of Denver, NC died Thursday, June 7, 2012. A memorial service will be held at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, June 13, 2012, at Vesuvius Vineyards, 6173 Vesuvius Furnace Road in Iron Station, NC. The family will receive friends at a reception immediately following the service. Dr. Darrow was born October 19, 1953 in Birmingham, Alabama. He was preceded in death by his father, Albert Henry Darrow. He was a father first, and a friend to many. He had a gift for helping those in need, and so dedicated his life to emergency medicine at CMC-Lincoln. Dr. Darrow earned his medical degree from East Carolina University School of Medicine and completed his Emergency Medicine residency at Albany Medical Center in Albany, NY. He was a writer and reader, a lover of the open road, Harley's, back porches, big trucks, and the great outdoors. He leaves a legacy of compassion and hope for the underdog. Survivors include his three daughters; Hannah McAlister Darrow, Hilary Burk Darrow and Sarah Frances Darrow all of Charlotte, NC; his mother, Carolyn Dykes Darrow of Statesville, NC; three bothers, John David Darrow, James Daniel Darrow and Peter Nathaniel Darrow all of North Hampton, New Brunswick Canada; and sister, Saralee D. Trimble of San Antonio, Texas. In lieu of flowers, memorials are requested to The Darrow Children's Educational Fund, 3522 Sharon View Road, Charlotte, NC 28210. Warlick Funeral Home, Lincolnton, NC is serving the Darrow family.
