I've known Farrell for almost 50 years. We've played a lot of music together. Had some good times together with bands and friends. He was always the most courteous, respected and loving friend. Im going to miss him terribly.

To the Farel Baughman family, our sincerest condolences for your loss. We enjoyed the times we met Farel, usually at a grandchild's birthday party. Just regret never personally thanking him for his wonderful daughter Shana, who is our son's wife and like a daughter to us. We are unable to attend the Celebration of Life service, but believe he lived a full life and loved his family. May God's grace and comfort be real to you all at this time.We will be making a donation in Farel's memory to the Banner of Love Church.

Prayers for you all. A great neighbor, we used to cut into each other's lane while driving on Elizabeth St., just for the smile and wave as we continued on our way. Easy to talk to, fun to be around, a good man. You will be missed.

Farel Baughman was one of the most creative people one could have the pleasure of knowing. He had a way with words. The ideas he could come up with were truly amazing. He loved his family and his musical family. His laugh was infectious. One rarely meets a person with so many abilities and talents. He was a loyal friend and confidant. He will truly be missed.
