Danny Owen Darnell, age 68, of Carthage, died on Tuesday, August 9, 2022 at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst. 

Born in Moore County, on August 3, 1954, Danny was a son of the late John Oliver and Louise Holder Darnell. 

Danny served in the United States Army. He worked in landscaping most of his life. Danny loved the great outdoors and also gardening. He loved all kinds of sports, but was an avid Tarheels fan. This created lively conversations during games with his family. He never met a stranger and is surely going to be missed. 

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his infant sister: Phyllis Evon Darnell; brothers: John Oliver Darnell and Terry Wilson Darnell; and sister: Dianne Darnell Heldt. 

Danny is survived by former wife: Joyce Odom Darnell; stepson: Jamie; brother: Steven Ralph Darnell and wife Kathy; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. 

A memorial service will be held at a later date. 

Isaiah 41:10 “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
