John Farash

October 14, 1929 — June 6, 2016

Brevard, North Carolina

John Joseph Farash, known as "Jack" to his friends and family passed away on June 6, 2016, at the age of 86. He died peacefully at Tore's Home #2 after a long period of declining health.

Originally from Port Washington, New York he moved to Ocean Springs, Mississippi to be close to his grandchildren. After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, he and his wife relocated to Brevard, NC, again to be close to his grandchildren and avoid future hurricanes.

Jack was an Army veteran of the Korean War. He was a gifted generator mechanic and serviced the generators in the hospitals, zoos, Long Island mansions, green houses and tug boats. He was a man of simple tastes and loved tinkering with short wave radios, his family and God.

He is survived by his wife, Irene of Brevard, North Carolina, daughter, Ann and son-in-law Paul Onnink of Pisgah Forest, North Carolina, son, John and daughter-in-law Joanne Farash of Sand Lake, New York and for grandchildren; Ben and Carly Onnink and Mikayla and John Farash and his brother, Arthur Farash of Issaquah, Washington.
