    My deepest sympathy to the Farley family. Tim was a great friend to my parents. Even after my dad died, Tim and Bich would take my mother out for News Year’s Eve. Tim was a great friend to my parents and will be greatly missed.

    My heart goes out to you Bich and your entire family. Tim was a very special person who gave his all to any project he took on. LEIA will miss him.

I am so sorry I will not be in town to attend his funeral but my thoughts and prayers will be with all of you.

    Tim and I certainly had our differences of opinion but we also shed tears together over lost family members because no matter what family was always first in our hearts. We were also working for a common cause. I’m saddened to hear of his passing. May God’s blessing be upon all who mourn this tragic loss

    Terry my friend,
    There are no words to express how sorry I am for Timmy and Jimmy’s loss. How ironic that we are both experiencing such profound pain at the same time. We could never have imagined growing up how it would all play out. Please know that my heart is with you and my love is with you . I am praying for comfort for you and your entire family. We have our faith. They will fly on the wings of the angels, and rest in the arms of Jesus until we see them again!

    I love you my friend,

  32. Shari Berendt on February 7, 2019 at 6:20 pm

    My heartfelt condolences go out to the entire Farley family. I just thought to myself who is going to make me laugh on Friday night ? Tim had a way of teasing me and laughing at his own humor at the same time. I will miss his guidance and his friendship. I will be praying for you all though this most difficult time.

  36. Vince Marze on February 8, 2019 at 10:01 am

    Dear Bich,

    I am so sorry to learn of Tim’s passing. In the 28 plus years knowing Tim, he was a great friend and a mentor. I learned a lot from him. He was person who would love to engage in conversation with people who crossed his path on a daily basis and took a sincere interest in them. When I worked for him back in the 90’s, I just admired how much of a family man he was. I know how much he loved you, the kids, and grandchildren that followed over the years. This is what he worked so hard for his entire life. Even though the days to come will be difficult, we can celebrate his life and the wonderful husband, father, and grandfather he was. His legacy will carry on and the love he had for his family will carry on for generations to come. He laid the foundation and framework. Tim will be missed dearly by his love ones and friends but it’s comforting to know what a great person he was. I will miss him.

  46. Ailsa Francis on February 16, 2019 at 5:07 pm

    Tim worked in Jamaica for several years. We prided ourselves as members of his family rather than as a colleague or as a friend. He was like another father to our sons. We will always remember his caring, interest and generosity.
    May his soul Rest In Peace
    Bevon and Ailsa Francis

  47. Mary Starusko on February 21, 2019 at 12:04 am

    Bic, I so remember Tim’s heart pining for you to come to the USA so many years ago. I also remember his great love and pride for his beloved sons, Donny and Bobby, so long ago when you came and they were small children. I remember your wedding. I remember a million laughs when we were in our car pool and our car pool dinners. What a great man, personality, brother, father, friend, husband and and all around good human being. You and he are in my prayers. Mary
