KENNETH FARAH

Kenneth D. Farah, 64, our loving husband, father, and brother joined the humble embrace of his Lord Sunday March 2, 2014. The sudden passing of a sweet, gentle, loving, and faithful servant is a loss for all who knew him. He was deeply invested in his religious communities at St. Clement's Church & School, El Paso; and St. Michael & All Angels, Dallas. He contributed much to philanthropic efforts through The El Paso Symphony Orchestra, The United Way, and most recently UTEP & New Mexico State entrepreneurship programs dedicated to the development of young talent in the region. His brilliant mind was always in search of an intellectual challenge. He loved aviation, music, and sailing. His wry sense of humor endlessly entertained everyone around him. He was preceded in death by his parents William and Betty Farah. He is survived by his wife Lysa, daughter Mary Elyse and son-law Huw McDonald, son Mattison; his brother Jim and partner Ken Laughran, Jim's daughters with Cynthia Haines, Elise and Alexa and husband Stefano Ranfagni; his brother Robert and wife Anne, their son Chris, daughters Kateleen, Shelby and Kendall; and his sister Haleen and husband Fred Zweifel, their sons Dillon & Cody. His love, wisdom, dedication, and integrity are irreplaceable. A memorial service will be held Friday, March 7 at St. Clement's Church at 2pm, 810 N Campbell Street. In lieu of flowers, donations in memoriam can be made to St. Clement's Church and School, The Center for Research Entrepreneurship and Innovative Enterprises at UTEP, and The El Paso Symphony Orchestra.
