Irving Farley Memorial Fund

On August 24th, 2018 at 9:21pm our lives changed forever.  It is with heavy hearts that we share that Irving Farley, 62, passed away unexpectedly.  Irv was a loving father, devoted friend, magnificent Baboo, and caring husband.  He has been a father to not only his own children, but to others who have happened to cross his path in life. 

Growing up and becoming an adult you know that at some point in time you will have to bury a parent.  No matter how you may prepare for it, when it happens, it rocks your world.  Irv helped family and friends, without ever asking for anything in return.  He remodeled homes and worked on cars for friends and family.  He would go out of his way to lend them rides to where ever they needed to go.  And he offered people money that he didn't even have for himself or family.  He opened his home to family and friends alike, and did all this to help people succeed in life.  He believed in the good and kindness of people.  He instilled that in his family and anyone he knew. 

Irv had health issues from a hereditary disease, suffered from a worsening case of congestive heart failure and COPD from environmental issues.  He has been in and out of the hospital several times in the last few months.  His prescriptions and medicals expenses have been too much to bare.  And he was ill prepared for any kind of funeral expenses.

Irv left behind a loving wife and family.  His family needs your help with all the medical bills and final expenses.  Peg would never ask for this, so her children and grandchildren are asking for your help.  He helped a lot people in his years on earth and wouldn't want Peg to have to handle this burden on her own.  We thank you for anything that you are able to contribute during this difficult time.
