John Oliver Darnell

June 12, 1946 — January 28, 2022

John Oliver Darnell Jr. (75), of Pinehurst and Indian Beach, NC, passed away peacefully on January 28.

Originally from Carthage, NC, John worked in dyestuffs sales across the southeast for Otto B May, Ciba Inc. and Huntsman Corporation. Known for his sharp wit, you could always count on a lively conversation with him over a good steak about ACC Basketball (Go Heels!, said begrudgingly by his Duke-loving daughters), the state of global politics & business, or his latest love (obsession?), Pickleball.

He is survived by two brothers, Steve & Danny; a son, Kelly; daughters, Brandi & Liza; and grand-children, Mary Katherine and Ben. The family will host a memorial this spring.
