Earland Bee Darling

Date of Death: December 14, 2019

Date of Birth: September 24, 1930


Earland "Bee "Darling went on to his next truck ride on December 14th,2019. Bee figured he'd ridden all the dirt road he could around here. He was tired of riding alone after the love of his life, Clarice, left to fill a Singing position in Heaven and his "Honey" dog walked the rainbow bridge.

Bee was born in Cundy's Harbor Sept 24, 1930 son of Merton and Pauline (Harley) Darling. He attended Cranberry Horn School and Potter Academy in Bridgton. Bee served in the Navy and returned home to work as a machinist at the Hyde Windlass, before his return to fishing full time.

Bee loved the outdoors and enjoyed traveling with Clarice, collecting stories, good deals and friends throughout t e country. Special places were "upta" camp in East Sumner, Monson Maine with good friends Gary and Anne Anderson, Newfoundland Canada and Hudson Florida.

Bee is survived by his daughter Julia Darling Soper and husband Brian of Cundy's Harbor, 2 special grandchildren Sarah Soper Weippert and husband David of Salt lake City, Utah, Zachary Soper and wife Mairead of Cundy's Harbor, 2 brothers Daniel and Clinton "Loss" Darling as well as many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his son David "Duffy" Darling, brothers "Donnie" and "Bud", special in-laws Gail a d Jim Murney and friend Joyce Levasseur.

There will be a memorial picnic for Bee this summer to be announced. Donations in his memory can be made to Mid Coast Humane Society or to Cundy’s Harbor Volunteer Fire Dept.

He was a remarkable, loved man and we are truly comforted knowing that Bee Darling knows who Bee Darling is again.
