Peacefully at his residence with his family by his side on Monday, May 20, 2019 at the age of 80. Beloved husband of Maureen Farrington (nee Lowe). Loving father of David Farrington (Sally) and Jacqueline Walton (Christopher). Cherished grandfather of Melissa, Joseph, Ainsley and Thomas. Tommy is survived by his sister Maria Knight (Albert) of Warrington, England, UK, his niece Jane and nephew Stephen.

Special thank you to the visiting nurses of Saint Elizz, the Palliative Care Team at McNally House and all of the doctors, nurses and staff of West Lincoln Memorial Hospital for their care and compassion. As per Tommy’s wishes, cremation has taken place.

Maureen & Family - we are so sorry to hear of Tommy's passing. He was such a great guy. We loved coming to the reunions to be with all of you, we had so much fun. We are thinking of you all at this sad time. It is comforting to know that he was surrounded by his loving family and that he is at peace now. Rest in peace Tommy!.
