Jimmy was a fellow classmate, as well as his sister Lou, from the IPHS graduating class of 1966. I was saddened to hear of his passing, which I read in the Iowa Park Leader (digital edition). My condolences go out to his family. He was obviously loved by his kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids. May you Rest in Peace, Jimmy Farr.

I have lost a 'brother' but I am so happy he is with the Lord. Jimmy was one of a kind and someone that I looked up to and respected ever since I first met him and Jo! I hope I can be half of the man he was! Miss you Jimmy!
