Victor Frank Farin|
September 3, 1953 ~ April 6, 2014
Victor passed away peacefully at home early morning Sunday, April 6. A Seattle native, Victor lived all his life in the Eastlake
neighborhood, attending Seward
Elementary, Hamilton Jr. High, and Lincoln HS, graduating from the Evergreen State College in 1976.
He enjoyed traveling: to Kona, HI; Roche Lake Resort, BC; Washington,DC; NYC and the wine regions of California. He visited extended family in the Philippines several times, and had great plans to return to his favorite destinations and explore new ones. Always the life of the party, he lived life to the fullest, savoring fine foods and wines, and attending concerts and events with his extensive network of friends. In his younger days, he enjoyed dancing, designing T-shirts, and spending time with his close friends and family. He was employed for several years by the US Postal Service, as well as Tommy's Sushi Restaurant in Eastlake. The family owned (and built) several apartments in the neighborhood which he helped to maintain, serving as a vital connection between the family and the tenants.
All his friends in Eastlake, as well as his adopted neighborhood of Capitol Hill enjoyed his energy, his smiling face, and his welcoming attitude and generosity.
Victor is preceded in death by his parents, Anita and Federico B Farin, and is survived by his brother Federico (Lisa) and several aunts, uncles and cousins, both here and in the Philippines. A celebration of Victor's life will be observed at Sunset Hills Memorial Park, 1215 145th Pl SE, Bellevue WA on Saturday April 12 with viewing at 9 AM, burial at 10:30 and reception following.
