Raymond Willard Farrell, 79, of Eden Prairie, MN passed away on Sunday November 28, 2021. He was born January 6, 1942 in Chicago, IL to Willard Farrell and Effie Borgman.
He married Eileen Supplee in 1967 and they celebrated 54 years together.
He worked at Schmitt Hall-McCreary, Promax, Wilson Tanner, Minnesota Wanner, and retired at age 74
Ray was hard working, generous, reliable and always willing to help those in need. He loved his kids and grandkids and always brought fun and humor to their lives. We have many fun memories with him on family vacations and holidays, as well as spending time with him wrestling, swimming, biking, and working on projects and cars.
Ray loved shopping and his favorite places were Sears, Menards and Home Depot. He loved shopping for tools but would shop for anything, especially if it was a good deal.
He loved Eileen with all his heart as well as their shared adventures. They had many amazing experiences together including camping, hiking, exploring, and biking. Each year Ray and Eileen celebrated their anniversary at the North Shore where they spent their honeymoon.
Ray had a lifelong commitment to Jesus knowing his hope was in the work of the Savior. He was confident knowing his eternal destination is Heaven, based on Jesus’ work on the cross. We loved him very much and he will be deeply missed. We are comforted knowing he is now healed and in Heaven.
Ray is survived by his wife Eileen Farrell, daughter Amy (Steve) Ward, son Ryan (Kristyn) Farrell grandchildren Tyler, Kellan, Aidyn, and Eve, his sister Agnes (Dick) Myers along with many loving family and friends.
Ray is preceded in death by his parents and granddaughter Ryleigh.
