Governor Terry McAuliffe released the following statement today in response to the news that Norfolk philanthropist and civic leader Joshua P. Darden Jr. has passed away:

“Joshua Darden was the very embodiment of a Virginia gentleman. As a businessman, a philanthropist and a leader in higher education, he devoted his life to making his city and his Commonwealth a better place to live, all while eschewing the publicity and credit that his efforts rightly deserved.

“Dorothy’s and my thoughts and prayers are with the Darden family today. Mr. Darden’s passing is a loss for our Commonwealth, but I have no doubt that his life of quiet service to his fellow Virginians will be celebrated and emulated by generations to come.”
