Joseph Darmour

Loving son, brother and uncle, Joseph "Joe" Steven Darmour departed this life June 16, 2022, surrounded by loved ones.

He was born on September 29, 1970, to Kenneth and Harriet (Gerber) Darmour in Barberton, OH.

He is survived by his mother Harriet Darmour of Wadsworth, OH, sister Nancy (Michael) Grandillo of Tiffin, OH, brother John Darmour of Woodbury, TN, nephew Vincent (Amy) Grandillo of Cleveland, niece Gina Grandillo of Tiffin, and special life coaches and providers, John and Tab Kelly of Wadsworth.

He was preceded in death by his father.

Joe was a graduate of Medina County Achievement Center and well-known and loved by the surrounding community. He was an accomplished athlete, competing in the Special Olympics basketball and golf. His JV basketball team won the state championship in 2013. He was honored in 2014 with an induction into the Medina County Sports Hall of Fame.

He enjoyed being productive and had meaningful jobs at Buehler's, Wendy's, and most recently, Wadsworth Planet Fitness.

Joe was an avid Cleveland sports fan and a loyal follower of the Wadsworth Grizzlies and Heidelberg University sports. He enjoyed watching his niece and nephew in their high school and college sports endeavors and was a dedicated enthusiast of professional wrestling and monster trucks.

He enjoyed attending regular services at Trinity United Church of Christ, Wadsworth, where he was a lifelong member.

Joe's disabilities never defined or confined him. His gentle kindness, outgoing personality and infectious optimism were a model to all who knew him.

A celebration of life will be held on July 11th, 2022, at Trinity UCC Wadsworth from 1:00 pm - 3:00pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Wadsworth Public Library; Trinity UCC Wadsworth; or the donor's choice.
