Charles Frederick (Bill) Darcey, 58, a retired foreman of the elevator shop of the U.S. Senate office buildings, died Sunday at the Yale-New Haven Hospital in New Haven, Conn., following a heart attack. A resident of Fairfax, he was visiting a son in Madison, Conn., when he was stricken.
Mr. Darcey was born in Arlington and graduated from Washington-Lee High School. He began his career on Capitol Hill after World War II service in the Army. He was foreman of the elevator shop for the Senate office buildings when he retired in 1979.
Mr. Darcey was a member of the Fairfax Methodist Church. He also had been active in Little League baseball and football affairs and in scouting.
Survivors include his wife, Norma M., whom he married in 1949, of Fairfax; three sons, Ramon, of Madison, Conn., William C., of Manassas, and Thomas D., of Herndon; three brothers, Richard C., of Leesburg, Fla., Paul E., of Vienna, and Frank H., of Fredericksburg, Va.; two sisters, Virginia Wilson of Reedville, Va., and Leah Flaherty of Falls Church, and three grandchildren.
The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the Northern Virginia Chapter of the American Heart Association.
