A man who wore many hats! A son, brother, husband, dad, granddad, great-granddad, great-great granddad, uncle, friend, and a True Man of God; that was Deacon Albert Farley, Sr. He will be remembered as such and much more. A man of few words, yet a quiet and welcoming spirit. A spirit that will never die but will live on through family, friends, and other loved ones. “For whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die but live eternally in Glory.” John: 11
A LIFE WELL-LIVED
We rejoice in the celebration of life of Deacon Albert Farley, born January 25, 1934, to Cecil Farley and Ethel Lee Waller Farley. Deacon Farley departed this earthly life from his residence and moved to his eternal home in heaven on Thursday, September 15, 2022. When God dispatched his angel to escort him home, he patiently responded, “Here I am Lord, I’m ready.” With his quiet spirit and glowing smile, he went to be with the Lord. He was the eighth of nine children and was preceded in death by all of them. The family has been reunited again.
Deacon Farley met the love of his life, Louvenia Williams and immediately recognized that she was a blessing from the Lord. Later, they enjoyed 68 years of matrimonial bliss.
Deacon Farley was a great provider for his family and provided for them the best he knew how. For many years he worked alongside his brother, Leroy as a milker. When his family started to grow, he knew that was not enough. That’s when his lifetime of career endeavors in the production field began. Starting with the Eatonton Cotton Mill until it’s closing and thereafter, he worked for the International Paper Mill. Later, he became an employee of Grumman Aerospace for several years until his retirement.
Deacon Farley confessed Christ as his personal Savior and united with the County Line Primitive Baptist Church under the pastorage of the late Elder Savage, where he served faithfully and timelessly as a dedicated deacon until his health began to decline. He took special pride in helping and performing his Christian duty in any manner he could. He believed in standing for what was right, even if he had to stand alone. He vowed to continue to do what the Lord instructed him to do. Until the very end, he continued to stand on God’s Word. Deacon Farley was respected, admired, and loved by the many lives that he touched. He will be missed and never forgotten.
So many precious memories will forever linger in the hearts of his family: wife, Louvenia Farley; his children: Albert (Joyce) Farley, Jr., Adam (Jacqueline) Farley, Mary Farley; Grandchildren: Sharoko (Angela) Farley, Altwon Farley, Adam Farley, Jr. Great Grandchildren: Ashanti (Jamonte) Knox, Justice Farley, Precious Farley, Sha’Angelo Farley, Amarion Farley, Sha’Nyla Farley, Alyssa Farley, Ariyane Farley; Great-Great grandchildren: Kasean Knox, Jayceon Knox, and Rosean Aiden Reaves. In addition, he leaves to cherish fond memories his nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and the County Line Primitive Baptist Church Family.
