Darling Benefactor Leaves Lasting Legacy

Burt Darling in one of the family rooms he named at Peppi’s House, TMC’s inpatient hospice facility.

Tucson Medical Center has lost a great friend and benefactor with the recent passing of H. Berton Darling.

Mr. Darling was a highly regarded local home builder and land developer. He and his family were also strong supporters of the hospital, including donating the final portion of funds needed to complete the $4.5 million construction of Peppi’s House, our beautiful inpatient hospice facility.

In a 2007 TMC Foundation On Center article, TMC Vice President and Chief Development Officer Michael J. Duran said, “His generosity cannot be overstated. Bert has helped us create this beautiful state-of-the-art facility that will provide comfort for Southern Arizona families for years to come.” (Read full story at Darling Gift Puts Peppi’s House Over the Top.)

We extend our sympathies to his family. Mr. Darling and his wife, Mary, left our community a much better place and their legacy will never be forgotten.
