Edwin married Virginia Stocker in Cavendish, Vt. He was employed at Bryant-Grinder in Springfield and General Electric in Rutland. He retired in 1981. He enjoyed traveling so much he became a lifetime member of AAA and spent many winters in Tampa, Fla. with his wife. He loved camping and was a member of the Good Sam’s Camping Club. He spent many hours playing horseshoes and shuffleboard, and he loved dancing.
He loved to make others smile, and he loved having fun. His sense of humor was disarming; and as a result he never met a stranger. He was quite social and easily developed acquaintances and friends. His favorite thing to do was play cards with family and friends.
Survivors include his sons John Farrar of Stockbridge, Ga. and Ken Farrar of Proctorsville, Vt., four grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife Virginia, his son Edwin Jr., and his daughter Patricia Winot.
