In Memory of Jonathan C. Farley
March 14, 2021
Resided in Utica, NY
Jonathan C. Farley passed away on March 14, 2021 at his home. Jonathan was the son of Carol, and Timothy Farley. He graduated from Proctor High School, later attending and graduating from Hudson Valley Community College, and SUNY Polytechnic Institute.
After college, Jonathan worked at the Utica Glass Company where he created window fabrication drawings using computer aided design software and managed many other details about customers’ contracts. Jonathan loved the people at Utica Glass, and made several lifelong friendships at this job.
Jonathan’s career was cut short when he had a nearly fatal stroke, a complication of the addiction he struggled with throughout his adult life. In the years that followed, he worked hard to recover many of his abilities. More than anything, Jonathan wanted to resume his career, provide for his son, and live an independent life. He especially wanted to be able to drive a car.
Jonathan is survived by his mother and step-father Carol Farley and Paul Hebert, and son Kieran Ryder Shenandoah. He is also survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Chris Farley and Paula Guerra, niece Eliza Farley, nephew Roman Farley, aunts and uncles Clark and Catherine Mosher, Michael and Linda Farley, William and Janis Farley. Jonathan is also survived by his feline family, Shadow and Annie.
Jonathan is predeceased by his father Timothy Farley, uncle Brian Farley, and uncle Clifford Mosher.
The family would like to thank John Brawdy, Bill Menter, and Mary Yeoman, for the selfless, important role they played in Jonathan’s life. He held all three in high esteem.
Private services will be held March 20 through Friedel, Williams & Edmunds Funeral and Cremation Services.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Stevens-Swan Humane Society in Jonathan’s name.
