He went to school in Bristol, Virginia/Tennessee and later acquired his GED. H spent most of his childhood summers with his grandfather, Josh Rose, on Honey Camp Ridge, Clintonwood, VA. At age 19, he married the love of his life, Judith (Judy) Carol Mullins on March 31, 1965. They met when he was 17 and she was 15 at Holston Dam, Tennessee while swimming, when he saved her sister Sandy’s life.

Later, while living in West Palm Beach, FL, Farrell formed a southern rock band called “Dixie Highway” and played in nightclubs and bars for about four years before moving back to Virginia. A few months after returning to Virginia, they started attending services at Full Gospel Church of Powhatan and have been members ever since. Farrell has been a devoted member of the church for many years. He started the prayer line in 1992 and continued it faithfully through the years. He served as Deacon and took his duties seriously. For several years he went to nursing homes to sing to the shut ins. He was the lead singer at the church until his health prevented him from attending. Farrell loved to work and took pride in his job. But, absolutely nothing compared to the love he had for God and his family.
