It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Brian Farrell, age 78, on the 11th of August 2020 in Toronto.

Born in Toronto, Brian spent his life in the city, first growing up in the neighbourhood of Swansea and later on settling in the west end of Etobicoke to raise his family. He spent many summers up cottaging at Lake Simcoe throughout his early years, taking part in fishing, swimming and boating. An avid reader and teacher, Brian would be sure to keep family and friends updated with the latest news and interesting pieces of information. He enjoyed writing and his family and friends would always know to expect a piece of mail from him, especially his hand-picked Christmas cards. Brian was also a deeply spiritual man and had wonderful connections in his community at his local church.

Brian was a beloved husband to Connie of 31 years and loving father to his daughter Elizabeth. He is predeceased by his brother Neil and will be missed by his family which include his sister-in-law Diane, sister Mary-Lynn (Marty) as well as his nephews Kirk and Todd and their families; father-in-law Antonio Roias, sisters-in law Estrella (John) and Marta (Bill) and nephews and niece, Stephen, Katie, Nicholas and Matthew. Fondly remembered by his many friends and extended family in Canada, United States and the Azores.

The family will be receiving family and friends at the G.H. Hogle Funeral Home,63 Mimico Avenue, Toronto ON, on Saturday from 2-4 p.m. with a funeral service at 3:30 p.m.

Brian and our families go back to 1982 when we where neighbours and what a great time that was. Eventually meeting Connie and his life changed to a
wonderful meaningful life. When they eventually got married and picked my husband and I to be there best man and maid of honour we where so proud and happy. God has taken a great man to be by his side. Brian be happy in your new life your family will keep your Love in their hearts for ever. Love Odette
