    Dear Cathy and the entire Farrell Family: My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Mr. Farrell was one of my favorite teachers at PHS. I remember him with his coffee cup and his ‘Mickey Mouse’ quizzes.

    My sympathy to you. I’ll always be thankful to Mr. Farrell giving Sue and I a ride to school on those cold winter days so we did not have to walk!! My thoughts are with all of you. Donna van Lannen May, my husband Mike will always remember the fun times shooting pool with Jim at Rodgers Corners Club.

    Mr. Farrell was my business education teacher at Pulaski High School; in fact, he was the reason I became a business education teacher (although he always wanted me to become a court reporter–more money, he said!) However, I think I made the right choice–I just completed my 33rd year of teaching at Waupaca High School.

    To this day, I try to be the teacher Mr. Farrell was–to make sure we learned something, but had an enjoyable time while accomplishing that goal. I have so many fond memories of being his student!

    I will never forget him–in fact, I thought of him yesterday–maybe now I know why. God Bless you, Mr. Farrell, and thank you for everything!

    Maryce and family,

    Lynn and I extend our deepest sympathy to the family. We both have fond memories of Jim. Lynnie, as a student who he took a special interest in by helping her work her way to the nationals as a typist. Myself, in later years by teaching me the value of community service. You are in our prayers.

    Dear Maryce and family,

    My deepest sympathy to you and all of your family. I knew Jim through his time as treasurer of the PEA. I enjoyed any time that I spent with him and he made a wonderful contribution to the PEA with his many years as treasurer. He was a great co-worker and a wonderful friend. God bless you and bring you comfort in your loss.

    Maryce and family,

    Pam and I send our sympathy. The first time I met Jim, he introduced himself and “told” me to buy one or more of his raffle tickets! Things never changed. It points out his generosity to give to others, not personal gain. I’m proud to call Jim one of my colleagues because I believe he was one of the best PHS had to offer. I have many fond memories of times outside of school.

    We will miss him.

    Mr. Farrell was a wonderful business teacher. I remember he often asked us how to spell his last name on tests…..trying to “teach” us how to spell Farrell. You have my sympathies.

    Dear Farrell family,

    I am very sorry to learn of your loss. My memories of Mr. Farrell at Pulaski High School were good ones in the various typing or business classes I took. I can clearly hear his voice telling me to “stop gabbing and keep my fingers curved and upright.” He was a great teacher who taught me a lot of practical things I use now. I will pray for your strength through these difficult times and wish you all well in the time ahead of you. I will keep you in my prayers.

    Dear Farrell Family: I can barely get the words out to express our deepest sympathy for your loss. There are so many fond memories that I have of the Farrell family and please know that the entire Johnson family from Pulaski is feeling your loss. Cathy, I’m sure our dad’s are having a “grainbelt” together with some of the gang from Marty’s. (What a thought.)Heaven is a better place with them there. Please know our love, thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time.

    You have my sympathy. Jim just oozed with personality. Going back lots and lots of years, I remember that I really did enjoy his class… mostly because we could tell he liked us and he had such a neat sense of humor. He didn’t take himself too seriously. Good lesson in that for impressionable teenagers… He was one of only a handful of people who called me “Pammy” and it has always seemed like those people made me feel special. Know you are in my prayers.

    To Maryce, Robbie and Family ~

    Sorry to hear about the loss of Jim. He truely was a man of many stories and jokes and someone I will never forget as a family friend when you worked wiht Mom at the Franciscans and as a teacher for many years. He always called me Shell. My deepest sympathy to all of you! You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I’ve known Jim since 1972 when I started teaching at Pulaski, and it doesn’t seem possible that he’s gone. There wasn’t a nicer guy in the world, and he’ll be missed by everyone. I doubt that I’ll be able to make it to the service on Sarurday, but our thoughts and sympathy go out to Maryce and the rest of the family. He left us much too soon.

    My condolences and kindest regards to the Farrell family following the loss of Jim. He and I go all the way back to our years at Northern. He certainly worked hard at whatever it was that preoccupied him at any given time, be it his teaching, the Lions Club projects or whatever.
    Hopefully, I will get an opportunity to stop in on Saturday.

    Maryce and family, you are in our thoughts and prayers. I have so many memories of Jim Boy I wouldn’t even know where to start. He will be greatly missed. We love you all and wish we could be there.

    I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Jim. He was a very dear person to me and he was such a
    fun person to be around. I remember all the corn roasts and visits to Stonington. We made a point to drop in to see him when we went to visit my dad (Donny) in Stonington. One memory that my husband, Mark, brings up is that when Jim would say, “Pammy, bring me a beer”, I wouldm’t even think about it and just do it. When my husband, would ask me to do the same I would tell him that he has two legs so do it yourself. Jim was a very giving, loving, and special person and he will be missed. Our thoughts and prayer are with your whole family thru this difficult time.
    Love Pam, Mark, Chris, and Charlie Corcoran. (Helman)

    Farrell family,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Jim was such a nice guy. I remember all of the fun up at Dougs camp when I was growing up. Swimming, playing basketball, volleyball, and the corn roasts. I have many fond memories of all the good times the families shared at camp. My sympathy to all of you. Take care

    Maryce and Family – I am so sorry to learn of Jim’s death. I did not know that he was ill. We go back many, many years with good memories of our times with the Pulaski Community School District.

    You and your family have my deepest sympathy, and all of you and Jim will be remembered in my prayers.

    I was a banker at Pulaski State Bank and proud to say I was a friend of Jim Farrell and Maryce and a fellow Lions Club member who enjoyed playing sheepshead with Jim and others after the Lions Meeting. Loved his humor and stories and kindness. Mike Allen
