Denny was very special to me and my beloved Artie Ehman. I loved listening to the stories they told about "the good ol' days," when Denny was a young officer, and Artie a young tavern owner. They remained close throughout the years, and when Artie was sick, there was not a better friend than Denny to be at his side to help. For all of his "tough" stance, Denny was a "softy" and we loved him for it.
God bless him and the Farrell family.

I knew Dennis for over seventy five years, having grown up across the street in Maplewood when we both were two years old. We both moved from there but always kept in touch over the years. Our wives Carol and Glenna became good friends, along with the kids. Dennis had a great deal to do with my joining a police department in Essex County, as he always expressed his satisfaction with his job with the UPD. Having moved out of state over 25 years ago, we were not able to see each other often, but memories of the many years we were friends will always be in our thoughts. Our prayers are with Carol and Colleen during this difficult time. May Dennis now rest in peace.

Dennis will be deeply missed. He was a true professional and served the Township of Union well. I will miss his smiling face at the Union County Police Chief's meeting where we would discuss current and past issues. He always had a good word for friends and often spoke about his family. The police community has lost a real leader.

Our deepest condolences to his family.

Dennis and I shared some happy times and some sad ones together.
He was a good man and a loving father and husband. Even though I did not see him these last few years I always considered Dennis my friend.
He was a fine example of a dedicated police officer . The residents of Union Township were well served and protected under his watch.
I pray he rests in peace. Ted Romankow

Mr Farrell I have known all my life. He worked with my Dad, Carol was friends with my mom, I knew his son and still talk to his daughter a lot. He was the Chief of Police when I was hired as a Police Officer in 1990. He then became Chief Farrell to me. After he had retired, I ran into him a few times here and there but none was so special as a chance meeting while I was working a security job and he came in to shop. He was proud to see that I had been promoted to Sergeant and wished me the best. We talked for some time, ending with a hug and a "let's get together some time" but that time never came. He will be missed.

Sincerest condolences from my whole family and especially from my Dad Robert, who also sends his condolences.

Dennis will always be remembered for his passion regarding his police profession. We spent many years sharing membership in the Union County Chiefs Association and no one compared to the way that Dennis brought forth his ideas and recommendations.

Ginny and I offer our condolences to the Farrell family and our prayers are with you all.
