Biographical Note

Cecil Albert Darby, Jr. was born on March 17, 1924, the son of Cecil Albert Darby, Sr. and Jewel Owen Darby. He died on January 28, 2017, and is buried in Parkhill Cemetery in Columbus, Georgia. His father, who died in 1962, was a conductor for 43 years with the Central of Georgia Railroad.
