July 25, 1938 - July 23, 2018

Neil Stewart Farpella was born on July 25, 1938 in Imperial Valley, California to Joseph and Mary (Hampton) Farpella, he was one of 4 siblings, Dorothy, Robert and Melanie. Neil passed away on July 23, 2018 just a few days shy of his 80th birthday in Keizer, Oregon. Neil resided for 58 years in California; he graduated from Sweet Water High School in 1956. After California he moved to Nevada for 10 years, Tennessee for 7 years, and Oregon the last 3 years. For most of his life he was a truck driver.

Neil was married and that union resulted in 7 children. His son Stephen wrote this Tribute: He was a great father and he had high expectations of his children. He raised us when he didnít have to.  He made sure we all had a roof over our heads food in our stomachs and clothes to wear.  He taught us how to work harder than others and how to provide for our familyís and whipped our asses when we needed it and loved us because he cared. I had so much fun with him as I learned about life and how to raise another manís child as your own. He never took a back seat in that department he was always #1. Donít be sad for him be happy right now the Little Giant is driving down the highway in some piece of shit cab over hauling another OD load going faster than heís supposed to dodging a set of scales looking for a place to get a cup of coffee. Looking forward to the day he and I can do it together one more time. I love you and miss you Little Giant, Fender Bender out.Ē
