Darold Astle Carling, 90, living in Gaffney, South Carolina, passed away peacefully on Monday, January 3, 2022.
Darold was born in Providence, Utah. He was the son of the late George Isaac Carling and Clara Pearl Astle Carling. Darold was raised on a farm and enjoyed working on his own family farm as well as working for neighboring farms. After graduating from South Cache High school, he was called to serve in the Eastern States Mission. Darold did not serve this mission, but instead enlisted in the U. S. Air Force to support our country during the Korean War. He was primarily stationed at Nellis Air Base in Las Vegas, NV, where his duties were to support flights. One of his main duties was to maintain the tugs that serviced and towed the jets. This opportunity piqued his interest to study diesel mechanics and electronics and led to his employment with the U. S. Postal Service. Darold was a mechanic for the Postal Service, before retiring after 32 years of service at the Salt Lake City office. He married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on June 10, 1966.
He was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in many different callings throughout his life. His interests included traveling, gardening and sports; both viewing and participating in especially basketball.
