Patrick Farley Obituary
Patrick (Pat) Leroy Farley

January 15, 1963 - August 3, 2012

SALEM - Patrick was unexpectedly promoted to the role of "Senior Advisor of Heaven" on Friday night, August 3, 2012. Pat grew up in Drain Oregon, graduated, and married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Deann. He moved to Monmouth Oregon in 1981 and attended Western Oregon State College where he obtained his Bachelor of Arts Degree. Pat and Deann enjoyed 29 years of marriage, love and friendship raising the large family of which they had always dreamed. They say if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life and Pat loved everything about life. He had worked for some time as husband, father, surrogate father, grandfather, son, personal advisor, conscience, life coach, and friend here in Independence Oregon. A dedicated advocate, he worked for Partnerships in Community Living since 1996 where his skills as "moral compass" were utilized daily. He had honed his skills over many years of true compassion and support for those he knew and loved. Pat was so well suited to his craft, that those near to him simply accepted his gifts as a part of everyday life. In his free time, Pat was an amazing musician, part time mechanic, and popular music aficionado. Often thought to have missed his calling as a radio disc jockey, Pat made up for this by accepting every opportunity to spread his wisdom over the amplified air. A University of Oregon 'Duck' in the extreme, he continued to collaborate successfully with his Oregon State friends without any sign of real animosity. Due to his extensive knowledge, extremely generous nature, and gigantic heart we have deemed him simply irreplaceable and have decided not to reopen his position here on earth. Please take a moment to celebrate his tremendous opportunity to influence all of us from his nearly elevated position.

Pat is survived by his loving wife Deann; adoring children Adam Farley (Laurie Farley), Emily Paramo (Edgardo Paramo), Joseph Reynolds, Andrew Farley (Katie Farley), Aidan Farley (Brenda Farley), Anna Farley, Austin Farley, Aunika Farley, & Amelia Farley; Grandchildren Willow, Kaedon, Mariah, Jordan, Jackson, & soon to be born Miles; parents Leroy & Patricia Farley of Drain OR; sister Terry Lewis (Cornell Lewis), brothers Glenn Farley (Jaron Farley) & Steven Farley (Diane Farley).

Pat would have loved the idea of a party to celebrate his life and many accomplishments. Music will certainly be required as well as a plentiful spread of his favorite dishes and desserts. Pat's "Promotion" party will be held Saturday August 18th, 2012 at 2:00pm at the Polk County Fairgrounds in Rickreall. There are accounts at US Bank, Sterling Savings and West Coast Bank under the "Pat Farley Family Memorial Fund" and donations can be accepted at any branch of these banks.
