January 10, 1960 - November 15, 2015
Robert Howard Darwin born January 10, 1960, died suddenly on Nov. 15, 2015. A loving husband, father, brother, and son, he will be deeply missed by all who knew his gentle humor and ready smile. Bob grew up in Plainfield, New Jersey, and attended Duke University and Duke Medical School. After completing his radiology residency at VCU/ Medical College of Virginia, he moved to Columbus, Ohio, in 1991 and joined Columbus Radiology Corporation and worked at local hospitals including Grant Medical Center and Fairfield Medical Center. He was active in the community and served on the boards of the Bexley Education Foundation and the Temple Israel Foundation; he could also be seen regularly in the kitchens of Temple Israel preparing food for the homeless at Faith Mission. He was a devoted husband, father, and son, whose greatest joy was spending time with his extended family and friends. He loved playing guitar, hiking, playing golf with his family, working out in the gym, and cheering on the Duke Blue Devils. (March Madness took on near-holiday status for Bob.) Bob is survived by his wife of 32 years, Beverly Sumner Darwin; his sons, Ross S. Darwin and Evan S. Darwin; his mother, Natalie Darwin (and deceased father Sidney Darwin); his siblings Allen (Maureen Erwin) Darwin, Gary (Jodye) Darwin, and Florrie Darwin (Paul Weiler); his mother- in-law Alice Sumner, sister and brothers-in-law, Betsy (Scott) Jokerst, Bobby Sumner, and Billy (Cheryl) Sumner; and his many loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. A memorial service will be held Sunday, November 22, at 1:00 PM at Temple Israel, 5419 E Broad St., Columbus , OH with Rabbi Misha Zinkow officiating. The family will receive condolence calls following the service from 3:30 - 8:00 PM at their home, 185 South Columbia. The Darwin Family will be holding a Shiva service in New Jersey on Tuesday, November 24th at Temple Sholom, 1925 Lake Ave., Scotch Plains at 7:30pm with Rabbi Joel Abraham officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Doctors Without Borders or Temple Israel.
