David Darlington

October 05, 1949 - March 23, 2011


David Darlington, 61, of Fargo, North Dakota died peacefully at his Frasier Home on March 23, 2011. David was born in Mayville, North Dakota on October 5, 1949 to his parents William Winthrop Darlington and Willene (Fager) Darlington. 

David lived his entire life in Fargo with his Frasier Group Home family. He was a gentle and good-natured man–with a streak of feistiness and humor. He was loved by all who knew him.

David is survived by his Frasier family, his special friend Judy of Fargo, ND, and  his good friends the Armstrongs of Linton, ND. He is also survived by his sister-in-law Pat Darlington (Stillwater, Oklahoma), nieces Amy Darlington Zwahlen (Ft. Collins, Colorado), Kelly Darlington Sward (Edmond, Oklahoma), Erin Darlington (Eugene, Oregon), and nephew Todd Darlington (Boulder, Colorado).  David’s uncle, Ed Fager of Boise, Idaho and brother Alan, also, survive him.

David was predeceased by his parents and his brother, Richard.

Special thanks to the staff and residents of Frasier Group Homes who were David’s family and to his guardian, Donna Rae Cotton of Catholic Charities ND, who looked after David with kindness and respect.

    Only the past year did David and I become acquainted as his health declined. However, this man was such an uplifting joy to be with. It was hard to believe he was declining. He loved going out and socializing. We would go to restaurants and order. While waiting we would play cards. The staff at our favorite restaurant became very happy to see us come in and showered us with special attention. Sometimes they would give tips to his hand of cards. David delighted in winning! As the weeks went by David blossomed.
    Conversation was often minimal, yet the sense of knowing and understanding one another passed between us. David was good at sharing out positive emotions towards others depending on their needs. There was a sense that this man had an understanding of humanity, much greater than many gave him credit for. The adventures out eating &/or shopping were highlights in each of our day.
    So many lives have been touched by David, a special soul ~ an angel. It has been an honor to know David as his Hospice volunteer.
    With sincere condolences to all of David’s extended family from Diane Jensen.
