Devoted Husband, Father, Brother and Grandpa
MIDDLEVILLE - Ralph Harold Farrington, Jr., 85, beloved husband of Carol Ann (Mosher) Farrington, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 9, 2021, at St. Luke's Campus of the Mohawk Valley Health System, Utica, surrounded with the love of family at his bedside.
Ralph was born on June 27, 1935, in Middleville, son of the late Ralph and Bernice (Orlowski) Farrington, Sr. He received his education in the Middleville schools and spent many years working hard for several local businesses to support his family, before his much-deserved retirement. On July 1, 1967, he married the former Carol Mosher and with lots of dedication, hard work and love, they raised their family together on Castle Road.
Ralph was a devoted husband, father, brother, grandpa, uncle, friend and neighbor. He was a proud man and very loyal; his word was his bond. Ralph loved to work with his hands and one could often find him in the garage tinkering with a lawn mower or working on some other project. When the weather was nice, you could count on a friendly wave hello from the porch as you drove by. Ralph was very proud of his family and he enjoyed spending time with them and especially loved watching his grandchildren play and grow. His love, pride and dedication to his family was unmeasurable. He was honest, hardworking, loyal and always willing to lend a helping hand whenever the need arose. He will be missed greatly.
Ralph leaves behind his loving family - his wife, Carol; his children, Jeff (Sherry) Farrington, Joe Farrington, Jamie (Sherry) Farrington, Jodie Farrington, Jim Farrington, Kristina Farrington, Kelly (Dennis) Spence and Mark Farrington; grandchildren, Jeffrey (Jen) Farrington, Erin (Josh) Yates, Aubrey Rastelli, Jordan Lowe, Codi Louis, Nathan Farrington, Skyler Brault, Noah Brault, James Farrington, Aiden Farrington, Morrigan Spence, Connor Spence and Willow Farrington. Ralph also leaves behind six great-grandchildren, many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends, who all loved him dearly. Ralph is now reunited with two of his children whom he had missed very much, his daughter, Janaye Farrington- Lowe and son, Daniel Farrington. Ralph was also preceded in death by his sisters, Ruth Maniachek, Marge Tanner and Helen Barbuto; as well as a brother, Harold Farrington.
To honor the family's wishes, there will be no public calling hours or services, as the family will be saying their goodbye privately.
Ralph and his family's care have been placed in trust of Mohawk Valley Funerals and Cremations, 7507 State Route 5 (corner of Bidleman Road), Little Falls, 315-508-5131.
