Obituary for Shawn William Farrell

It is with great sadness that the family of Shawn W. Farrell, 56, of Willoughby, announce his passing on August 17, 2020. After a great fight, he passed peacefully with his wife, Laura and sister-in-law, Carlene by his side. He was born April 12, 1964 in Garfield Heights.
In his early years, he was a volunteer firefighter for the City of Madison. He also enjoyed coaching Little League and racing cars at the Painesville Speedway. He was an avid motorcycle fan, attending many Louie Runs. Later in life, his hobbies included fishing, camping, woodworking, 4 wheeling, working on Coleman lanterns, and following Nascar. His annual camping trip was extremely special to him. Shawn truly loved being a grandfather. He most enjoyed spending time with his “puppy butt”, Oliver.

(Persic) Farrell; son, Timothy Farrell; daughter, Alissa Farrell; step-daughter, Amber (Rory) Sullivan; grandchildren, Avayah, Hailie, Carlie, Elsie, and Alivia; brothers, Kelly Farrell and Kevin Farrell.
