Celebrating a life well lived. Farris passed away on August 12, 2020. He was predeceased by his wife Norma (2003); parents Ajaj and Lily Baba; siblings Johnny, Jo and Gen. He is survived by children Jim (Penny), Tim (Susan), Kathy (Marcel) Bolen, Gary (Nicole); grandchildren Jamie (Chris), Mitch (Lianna), Melani (Steven), Travis (Ashley), Robyn, Stephanie (Danny), Brooklyn, Kaitlin, Ashlynn and Zack; great grandchildren Violet, Emma and Hayden; siblings Eve, Jewel and Tom; sister in law Colleen Frank. Farris was born in Rush Lake, SK on Sept. 25, 1928, spending his childhood there working on the farm. After moving to Swift Current, he met Norma and they were married in Swift Current on October 5, 1955. Moving to Moose Jaw in 1961, Farris worked for Cargill and eventually he opened his own business Baba’s Feed Hut. Farris will be remembered for many things, but his family will always be thankful for his loving, caring and generous personality. He led by example, if you wanted your child involved in activities as a parent you got involved. In his case it led to coaching, umping with baseball and managing bowling teams. Farris was recognized for his efforts by being awarded Moose Jaw Sportsman of the Year and being inducted into the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame. Farris loved playing cards and passed that love onto his children and grandchildren. He couldn’t outsmart those grandkids though, they always caught him trying to cheat, which lead to lots of laughs as he tried to play innocent. He became a member of the Timothy Eaton’s Senior Centre, where he took on any role asked of him. What we will miss most, however, is his charming smile and quick wit. He loved his family, and nothing gave him more pleasure than just being together and sharing life stories. The family would like to thank the staff at Crescent Park Retirement Villa, and the medical unit of F. H. Wigmore Hospital and Providence Place for the wonderful care Farris received. A Private Family Graveside Service will be held on Wednesday August 19, 2020. For those so wishing memorial donations may be made to the Baseball Sask c/o Sport Legacy Fund, 1870 Lorne St, Regina, SK, S4P 2L7, www. sasksport.ca, or to Timothy Eaton Gardens, 510 Main St N, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 3K3.
