Peter Farnham

d. May 4, 2015

Peter R. Farnham, 54, formerly of Norwich, and more recently of Dallas, TX, passed away unexpectedly at his home on May 4, 2015.

Born March 10, 1961, in Norwich, Peter was the son of Gerald F. and Beatrice (Brewer) Farnham, each of whom had preceded Peter in death. After graduating from Norwich High School with the class of 1979, Peter went on to complete his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at SUNY Oneonta. His most recent endeavor was ownership and management of Vita Sackvill-West, a textile firm located in Dallas.

Peter had many interests including gardening, browsing flea markets for the next great find and starting on the next home improvement project. The thing that Peter most enjoyed, however, was being a volunteer and team leader at the Dallas-Fort Worth USO.
