It is with sadness too deep for words that we announce the passing of John Patrick Farwell, on Monday, August 25, 2008, age 40. John will always be remembered with great love, and so sadly missed by his Mom – Cecelia (& the late Louis) Farwell, and by his family – Don & Stella Farwell of Stratford; Dorothy & Rick Kay of St. Thomas; MaryAnne & Greg Sunderland of London; Berni Farwell & Sandra Hockin of London; Ken & Hennie Farwell of Exeter; Ed Farwell of Tecumseh; Rita (& the late David) Hanna of London; Joe Farwell & Melinda McCoy of Cambridge; Tim Farwell of Hensall. He will also be dearly missed by 13 nieces and nephews, and their families and his many uncles, aunts and cousins. Fondly remembered by Kimberly Kerr, of Alberta. John was a professor of Theatre Arts at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta, and was very highly regarded by his students and colleagues. He was born in Zurich, ON, and has lived in Eastern, as well as Western Canada. John has always been a most loving, gentle, and caring son, brother, uncle, and friend. We will always love John, and cherish the wonderful memories he has left us. With God’s help and with the love and strength of our incredible family, we will make it through this difficult time.
