Dennis Verdo Farris passed away on Nov. 1, 2012 at the age of 58, after a long illness. He was born in Birmingham, Alabama on Sept. 30, 1954, the oldest of three sons born to Verdo and Patsy Farris.

The family moved to Ray, Arizona in 1957 where Dennis started school and later graduated from Ray High School in Kearny. He lived in California and Colorado for some years.

Dennis’ big love was always music and art. His love of music, especially rock-n-roll, lead to him working as a disc jockey at several radio stations over the years and his love of art lead to his return to college at the age of 50 where he received his Bachelors Degree in 2006 from the U of A, of which he was very proud.

Dennis enjoyed drawing and painting and sometimes displayed his work in local art shows. He also enjoyed getting together with friends and playing guitar. Dennis loved children and worked for a time with troubled children in California, always wanting the best for them.

Dennis is survived by his three sons, Dylan (Lindsey), Jesse (Kim) and Free; three grandchildren, Sage, Jackson and Grace; parents, Verdo and Patsy Farris; brothers, Jeff (Brenda) and Jerry; niece, Shea; nephew, Sam and many aunts, uncles and cousins all over the Southeast.

Memorial Service will be held, Thurs., Nov. 8, 2012 at 11 a.m. at Fellowship Baptist Church in Kearny.
