We are shocked and saddened to announce the passing of Edward Phillip Farrell on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at the QEII Health Sciences Center in Halifax.
Born on May 11, 1960 in Sydney, Ed was the son of the late Thomas Michael and Bertha Mary (MacIsaac) Farrell.
Ed is survived by his partner in life, Louise Lever; two sons, Timothy Farrell and Avery Morellato; siblings, David (Helena), Charlie (Karen), Donnie, Michael, Marilyn (Fred) Gillespie, Joann, Debbie (Wayne) Stockley, Catherine Mortensen, Linda (Lawrence) Digou, Sheila (Alex) Digou and Pearl (Boris) Santekuces.
Eddie was a long-time employee of Purolator. He enjoyed watching his beloved Montreal Canadiens, camping in Cheticamp, bingo on Wednesday nights, Avery’s baseball games, and long drives in his truck.
Besides his parents, Ed was predeceased by siblings, Marie Berard, Patricia and Tommy.
The family would like to thank the staff at the QEII for the kindness and care that Eddie received during his brief stay.
Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life for Edward Farrell will be held at Pier Community Funeral Home, 1092 Victoria Rd. (entrance on Church St.), Whitney Pier on Monday, February 1, 2021 at 6 p.m. with all Covid-19 protocols in place.

I would like to send my condolences to all of the Farrell family as well as all Families. Ed was a Childhood friend and school mate. Ed, Alan Chalupa and myself talked hockey all the time. I was a Boston Fan and Alan was Rangers so in French class we were all put up the front of the class as we talked hockey more than french. A great memory to have and Cherish. Ed also played in our road hockey group. RIP friend.
