Farrell was born on January 16, 1950 in Andalusia, Alabama to his parents Hilton and Lucile (Blocker) Lasiter. He graduated high school from Pleasant Home High School in 1969. When he was just 19, Farrell was drafted by the U.S. Army to serve in the Vietnam War. After serving in the Vietnam War, Farrell continued his military service. When he was stationed in West Germany, he met and fell for Jeanette Driver, who he married on Sept. 19, 1975. They went on to have two daughters, Rachel and Paula. The family moved between the United States and Europe during Farrell’s time in the U.S. Army. After retirement, they chose to settle in Loveland, Colorado. He fell in love with the mountains when visiting previously and decided this was where he wanted to be. After moving to Loveland, Farrell started working in logistics for several large companies in Northern Colorado. He went on to work for the U.S. Forest Service before full retirement. During this time, he completed his Bachelor’s of Science Business Administration from Columbia Southern University in 2011. He was quite proud of this accomplishment. Farrell had a passion for gardening and enjoyed sharing what he grew with family and friends. He also loved camping and fishing even when the fish weren’t biting.
