Carl leaves to cherish his memories, daughters, Brandi Farrell and Gina Hancock; son, Taylor Farrell; grandchildren, Jordan Crabtree, Kennysan Meeks, McKinley Godfrey, Taylor Green, Kamryn Godfrey, Caroline Geddings, Alaia Farrell and Ames Farrell; and 11 great-grandchildren. He is further survived by his loving siblings, Alice Farrell Crawley (Lonnie, Sr.), Joe Farrell (Darcy) and Sam Farrell (Vicki); many special nieces and nephews and “Nana” Gail Hursey, former wife, and beloved friend. 

Mr. Farrell attended Southern High School in Durham, NC.

Since a young age, Carl was a competitive baseball and softball player, avid golfer, and dedicated Tarheel fan.
