Farell was my father who raised me without bias , served his country , a dedicated husband , and help anyone with anything. I'd always known dad in the strict fatherly role. I wasnt lucky enough to know him outside of that role. So if you have any information or memories of him please contact me at zharadawn@gmail.com or subversion101010@gmail.com. His grandchildren and myself would love to know more.
