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.

The family would like to thank the staff at the QEII for the kindness and care that Eddie received during his brief stay.

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.
