William Darley
William Edward "Bill" Darley, 56, died April 12, 2019 in Wilmington, NC. He was preceded in death by his mother, Barbara. His father, Edward "Pete" Darley, passed days later on April 16. He is survived by his sister Jayne Tynan (Bob), extended family, and his beloved dog, Buddy. A gifted athlete, Bill excelled in golf, water skiing, baseball, and cycling. His lifelong obsession, though, was motocross. "Gnarly Darley" raced fearlessly for decades. He was an ASE Certified Acura Technician and a graduate of Pro SX MX Tech Trade School. He worked as a specialist at SOBMX Motocross Training Complex and as an automotive technician at Acura CarLand and Hennessy Lexus of Gwinnett. He also restored classic cars. A memorial will take place in Atascadero, CA, where Bill was raised and graduated high school.
