Obituary of Haley Farrin
Haley Lynn Farrin Madison, Maine On July 27, 2022 we unexpectedly lost our beloved daughter, Haley Lynn Farrin. Haley was born on June 10, 1996 in Skowhegan, Maine. She attended school in the Madison school district graduating in 2014. She went on to graduate from the University of New England in 2019 with her BA in medical biology with a minor in psychology. Haley chose this path with her schooling because she was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease during her first year of life. She went through many years of diagnostic testing and procedures making her comfortable with the medical field and wanting to become a doctor to help others. She never used this disease as a crutch or a reason to hold herself back, which is why she wasn’t afraid to say she had chosen the wrong path for schooling after five years and receiving her degree. She decided to go back to school and pursue a degree and career in accounting which she enjoyed working in for the past couple years. In Haley’s younger years she enjoyed horseback riding on her horse Chippy, her Friday night rides with her mom and Sam on the bike, watching Austin Powers movies with her dad Sam and making her mom leave only after she had dropped their pizza off, and traveling with her dad Brad which turned into a love of traveling in her adult life as well. Haley loved spending time in the Florida Keys where she and Lynn would have competitions to see who could read the most books while they were there, eat lots of sushi and she would try as many different key lime pies as she could. She loved spending time at the turtle hospital where she was able to share her love of sea turtles and eventually adopted one. Her love of the church and travel also lead her on a mission trip to Jamaica where she spread more love helping the locals meet their physical needs with clothing, food, and shelter, as well as helping fulfill spiritual and social needs. Her Pastor Tobin Curtis remembers being proud of her on this trip - she was not afraid under any circumstance or condition to give a hug and extra love to those people who were hurting and needed it most which was a special trait she held throughout her life. Haley was also a lover of sports. She was always cheering on the Miami Dolphins and Boston Red Sox of which she was able to attend many games and had the honor of announcing “play ball” on the mound at Fenway Park. In Haley’s adult years she kept up with her love of traveling and adventuring. She loved her job that she held at Cabela’s until she purchased her first home back in her hometown of Madison in 2020 with special thanks to Uncle Randy Gray who helped her tremendously with improvements to the home. Here, she loved spending time with family, being a dog mom to her two French Bulldogs, Franklin and Winston, and spending lots of time on the river. Haley touched so many lives in her short 26 years. She was so loved by many and will always be remembered for her contagious laugh, big smile, and even bigger heart. She is survived by parents Tammy and Sam Gray of Madison, parents Bradlee and Lynn Farrin of Norridgewock, sisters Danielle Farrin and partner Brian Taylor, Emily Bean, Lauren and husband Paul Brousseau all of Norridgewock, grandparents Jim and Linda Hayden of Madison, Jack and Linda Williams of Madison, Doug and Kathleen Farrin of Mount Vernon, Crystal Locke of Daytona Beach and Jean Gray of Skowhegan, many aunts, uncles, cousins and one nephew, Landen Farrin. She was predeceased by grandfather Samuel Gray, Sr and grandmother Marguerite Libby. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that donations be made to the Polycystic Kidney Foundation in Haley’s name which can be found online at pkdcure.org There will be a service held on Thursday, August 4, 2022 at 11:00 AM at the Christ Community Fellowship church on Maple street in Madison. A private burial will follow at the East Skowhegan Cemetery for close family members only. A celebration of life will be held at T&B’s in Skowhegan from 1:00pm to 3:00 pm.
