Goodbye to a wonderful, gentle man: Walter Farmer (April 26, 1924 – July 10, 2009)

Words are never enough when we lose our loved ones

Mum and Dad Farmer

My beautiful father-in-law, Walter Farmer of Nuneaton, England, left us on Friday, July 10, 2009. Loving husband of Beryl (aka Mum), and their four proud sons: Robert (my Sweetie), Graham, Ian, and Stuart, and their families.

I hope he’s enjoying a pint with my beautiful Dad, Eric McComb, up there somewhere in the stars. They certainly shared some laughs together with Mum and Mom over the years.

We’ll celebrate his life and count ourselves blessed that we all had such a wonderful role model in our lives.

Rest in peace, Dad.

    A Wonderful Tribute to a special gentleman that I am so very proud to call my “Grandad” We will all miss him very much including Lewis and Charlotte who have both made him smile on many occasions over the past few years! 85 years of life is a remarkable achievement and we are now consoled with the fact that he is now at rest and leaves us with many special memories that we will all cherish forever!

  • Looking forward to sharing those memories with you soon, Wayne and Emma. And seeing young Lewis and Charlotte. Lots of changes in six years… Love, Aunt L.

    To Beryl and all of the Farmer clan. Walter truly was a lovely, gentle, man. He always had a smile on his face and he always had something to say which would brighten your day! My thoughts are with you all also. Love, Karen

    When I was a young lad my Dad (Shirl Farmer) and the rest of the family would visit with Uncle Walter and Auntie Beryl. I always enjoyed visiting with such nice people. My Uncle Walter would tell us about my cousins and their adventures, Robert in America and Stuart at Rolls Royce. Which helped fuel my ideas of going to America. My Dad always spoke about his big brother with high regard and great respect. You will all be in my thoughts.
    All my love.

  • Thank you so much, David. We thought the world of Uncle Shirl and always enjoyed great times together. Now Dad and his dear brother are together again.
