Darin Mack Church, age 51, of 4925 Shawtown Road, Ennice; passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, August 29th, 2023 in Ennice, NC.
Darin was a partner in the family business of Church's Concrete and a partner with his son in D & B Grading. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed playing golf, fishing, kayaking, back packing, running, hiking, rock climbing, cooking, riding the golf cart with his canine companion, Toby and spending time with his family. There is much to be said about Darin and his life of just 51 short years but the one thing that Darin was very passionate about was helping others in need and never expecting anything in return.
