AUBURN — Rick J. Farr, 43, of Conant Avenue, Auburn, died tragically Sunday, Feb. 5, from injuries sustained in an automobile accident.
He was born in Brunswick, Feb. 10, 1968. As Rick grew up, he made many friends and touched so many lives on so many levels. Rick had three stepchildren who he loved as his own, he did everything he could to show them the love that any father would and then on Jan. 11, 2010 Sophia was born, his pride and joy, his everything. Rick never thought he could love another person so much as he did Sophia.
The work-driven man who we all knew finally had a reason to stop and enjoy his life with his wife and family. For the first time in his life, he found a woman, who was his true partner, friend and fiancee. Stacie completed the family he had been searching for his whole life. Rick and Stacie did so much together and were inseparable, they had so much in common and yet so little. It was a perfect match from the beginning. They valued each others time, though it was short, it was so sweet. Stacie will always remember Rick as the loving father and man that he was.
No matter what Rick was doing, no matter where he was you could always count on him, he always made time for his friends and was always willing to lend a helping hand. So many people will mourn the loss of this great friend, father, son and husband. He was a sincere confidant.
Rick worked for many years at Morin’s Fine Furniture and Refinishing as the manager. He truly loved his job and it was a big part of his life, he soon became part of the Morin Family. He was a perfectionist and customers were always complimenting on the great work he did. He always made a lasting impression with customers, because of his professionalism and his warm personality.
He was a very active person and never sat still, he enjoyed going to the gym and staying in shape, he was very proud of his physique and wasn’t shy to show it off.
He leaves his fiancee, Stacie Farrell of Auburn; his daughter, Sophia; and his three stepchildren, Serena, Maria and Mark; his father, Ron Farr and long-time friend, Catherine Raynor. He will also be sadly missed by Cecile Maurais, Rob and Scott Lachance, Ricardo Rafanan, extended family in California and many dear friends.
Rick was a one-of-a-kind, broke the mold kind of personality. We love you, you will always be with us.
