Obituary for Desmond L. Farrell

Desmond Lesroy Farrell was born in Antigua, West Indies in the small country village of Bendals. He and his siblings had a humble upbringing, and learned the value of hard work from the example set by their hardworking parents.

Desmond grew to enjoy participating in the carnival festivities in Antigua (playing Mass), cooking, and spending time fishing with friends. He traveled to various Caribbean islands and the US mainland for work and eventually settled on St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. While on St. Thomas, he held jobs as a carpenter, handyman, cook, mechanic, and landscaper. He was a true jack of all trades.

Desmond was a hard worker, and had a helping spirit that touched the lives of many. He spent most of his life being of service to all who came in contact with him. His friends describe him as cool, funny, and most importantly, loyal.

He truly did live a good life, but unfortunately became ill and departed this life on Thursday, February 2nd, 2017 on St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands at the age of 53.

Desmond leaves behind his two children, Shianta and Delicia; Grandchildren, Omarry, Brandon, Hazan, and Cymonique. Brothers, Nathaniel Farrell, Franklin Farrell and Phillip Farrell, Vere Farrell; Sisters, Petronella ONeil, Margaret Farrell, Sentelea Richards, Goldine Farrell, Sharon Farrell, Valerie Farrell and; Brother-in-law, Donald Richards; Special friend Natasha Adams.
