Tim moved to Troy, Alabama, to work for Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, where he was respected and loved by those who were fortunate enough to work with him.  When he wasn’t working, Tim could be found riding his motorcycle and helping others, especially children. He was known for his love of all children and his ability to connect with them, something that parents often commented on. Like the children he inspired, Tim found good in everyone he met.

Tim was preceded in death by his mother, Ann Donahoe Farren; his brother, Michael Francis; and his sister, Sheila Marie.

Tim is survived by his father, Jack Farren; three brothers and their wives, John and Marion Farren, Mark and Shannon Farren, Kevin and Leslie Farren; his sister and her husband, Ann Marie and Lynn Francis; and eight nephews and nieces.
