Harold (Bob) Farrar of Tolland, CT passed away at the age of 80, on Friday, September 25th at Manchester Memorial Hospital surrounded by his family.
Bob proudly served his country in the Army National Guard followed by the Navy, where he travelled the world, bringing back stories he loved to tell about life on the open ocean. After being honorably discharged at 24 he married and started a family. They settled in Coventry where he successfully owned and ran Connecticut Driveway Service for over 30 years, probably best known for their signature bright green and yellow dump trucks. Bob never enjoyed being idle or indoors. When he wasn’t working, he could be found tinkering with his favorite puzzles and gadgets or down by the shore flying kites and model airplanes. Bob loved to be surrounded by his family and was always playing jokes on them with a twinkle in his eye. He found great joy in making people laugh. He spent his later years travelling around Connecticut with his dog and faithful companion, Kiki.
Bob is survived by: his daughters Peggy Attardo (former son-in-law Greg Attardo), Nancy Farrar, their mother JoAnn Farrar; his grandchildren Angela Attardo, Terri Christians (Corey Christians), Emily Attardo, Nicholas Attardo; multiple great-grandchildren; his brother Don Farrar, sister Diane Robarge-Pezzolesi.
A memorial gathering to remember Bob will take place at Luddy & Peterson’s Funeral Home, 205 S. Main St, New Britain on Saturday October 3rd from 11am-1pm. A private burial will be held later with immediate family.
