Darragh A. Park died on April 17 at his home in Bridgehampton. He was 69.

Born in 1939 to Darragh and Sallie Mellon Park, he attended St. Mark’s School and graduated from Yale University. After working as a teacher in Sierra Leone in Africa, he returned to the United States and worked for the Office of Economic Opportunity in Washington, D.C.

He studied painting with artist Robert Dash and launched his own career as an artist, with his work garnering positive reviews in many art journals and shown extensively at Tibor de Nagy Gallery in New York City.

He is survived by a brother, James M. Park and his wife Elizabeth of Amenia, New York; two nieces, Eleanor Hartwell of Missouri and Darcy Hogan of Massachusetts; and six great-nieces and great-nephews.

Funeral arrangements were under the direction of the O’Connell Funeral Home in Southampton.
