Memories Timeline


  1. I’ll miss you George. We were friends since we were little—since third grade in Palisades Park school. We were locker partners and graduated from Leonia High School class of 1941 when high school was on Broad Avenue. My wife and I went on many bus trips organized by you from Leonia American Legion, Post #1. We were both Army veterans and survivors of WWII. So many memories. Our condolences to your family

  2. Thank you George for being the best friend and neighbor to me and my family. I will truly miss our many talks at the "fence" in the backyard. May you rest in peace my dear friend!

  3. My deepest sympathy to the family of Mr. Farrell.
    He will be missed by all who knew him.
