U.S. Departments of Treasury and Labor, and other agencies. An enthusiastic tennis player for five decades, he coped in recent years with painful musculo-skeletal problems. His personal interests included travel to historic sites such as Machu Pichu in the Peruvian Andes and Petra in Jordan, studies of philosophy and depth psychology, ethics and religion, and writing poetry. In 1999 he completed and donated to Chicago's Newberry Library a Darcy history tracing his family's Irish ancestry. Dr. Darcy's parents arrived in the western suburbs in the early 1920's from Nebraska and lived in the Chicago area for many years. Darcy was preceded in death by his father Robert M. (Bob), mother Mabel Marcum Darcy, and brother Bill E. He is survived by his son Timothy, daughters Kathleen, Roberta, Laura and six grandchildren.
