Obituary for Jim Farrow
James Lee “Jim” Farrow, 77, passed away Saturday, February 3, 2018 at his home in Belden after an extended illness. A native of Tippah County, he was born in Ripley November 25, 1940 to William Fred Farrow and Beatrice Davis Farrow. He was a graduate of Shady Grove High School. He then served his country in the U.S. Army field artillery. Jim worked 45 years in logistics, retiring as the logistics manager at People Lounger. His family remembers him as a loving father, husband and grandfather; a man who met everyone with a caring smile and a firm handshake. He was always there to offer words of encouragement. Jim loved the outdoors and was an avid fan of NASCAR. He enjoyed fishing, hunting and gardening. He had a knack for planting seeds and watching them grow, literally with the plants he nurtured and figuratively with the family his raised.
