James Franklin Farrell passed away June 27th, 2011 around 7am in Shreveport, LA at the home of his daughter Mischa Farrell. “Jim” was a beloved father, husband and friend. Anyone that encountered him could not help but be touched by his cheerful demeanor. Jim always had time to talk and listen to anyone and everyone. Even in sickness, he had the best attitude and was simply happy, optimistic, and seemed to care more about whomever he was talking to than himself. Before retirement, he worked as a Dental Technician in the basement of his home with his wife Bobbie. The kids could always visit any time. He was passionate about skiing, singing, family and friends. He was a member of the Tri City Community Concert Association, Community Choir and Borger Noon Lions Club. An original spirit with a ready smile and a kind heart, he was athletic, adventuresome, funny and fiercely loyal to his family, friends and his community.
He was born to Christina and Jim Farrell on July 5, 1933, in Los Angeles, CA. He moved to Borger, TX at the age of 16 where he met his soul mate and best friend Bobbie Farrell. Their partnership of 60 years fostered three children and many lovely friends. Bobbie preceded Jim in death on Thanksgiving Day 2010.
Jim’s children, Michal Farrell, Mitchell Farrell and Mischa Farrell survive him as do his grandchildren Christy Farrell, Jay Farrell, MacKenzie Bubel, Morgan Bubel and great grandchild Leah Farrell. He leaves a true sense of gentleness, kindness and love in his wake. We will miss him.
Funeral services will be at 10:00AM, Friday, July 1, 2011 at the First Presbyterian Church in Borger, TX. Burial will follow at Highland Park Cemetery in Borger, TX.
