DARWIN SHARBROOK PIPPIN

Darwin Sharbrook Pippin died Thursday, June 7, 2018. He was 95.

He is survived by his brother, Charles McGuire Pippin; daughters, Angelyn Pippin Simmons and Dottie Pippin (Jeff) Castleberry; grandchildren, Amanda Simmons (Wil) McGriff, Olivia Simmons (Greg) Ennis; Anna Dyas (Geoffrey) Hancy, and Taylor Drayton Castleberry; and great-grandchildren, Darwin Clark McGriff, Emma Elizabeth Ennis, Henley Prim Hancy, Gregory Dale Ennis, Jr, Annalyn Bell Ennis, Brooks McKim Hancy, and Lydia Ann Hancy; many cousins, nieces, and nephews, and countless friends.

He attended Andalusia High School before enlisting in the United States Navy. He was a gunner’s mate first class stationed on merchant marine ships and circled the globe three times during World War II.

After the conclusion of WWII, Darwin attended Auburn University where he majored in mechanical engineering. He married Dorothy Perkins Taylor on June 10, 1947. They left Auburn to return to Andalusia to open TP Flower & Gift Shop with her parents, Angelyn and Perkins Taylor. Darwin later served as president of the Alabama Floral Association and Alabama Director of Florist Transworld Delivery.

Darwin left TP Flower & Gift Shop to become a salesman for the newly formed TPS, Inc., and eventually became sales manager. He was honored to receive the first Founders Award at TPS. Darwin treasured the people he worked with at TPS, and the dear friends he made there have enriched his life more than words can say.

Darwin was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Andalusia where he served as a Deacon, Church Training Director, and President of the Brotherhood.

He and his wife, Dorothy, sponsored a teenage evangelism group called TEAM (teenagers effective at ministering) in the late 60s. This group did revivals in many churches in Alabama and Florida as well as a mission trip to Fort Knox, Kentucky.
