OBITUARY: Kevin Carlton Farrer

Kevin Carlton Farrer, 59, lost his battle with depression on April 29, 2022, in Alpine, Texas.

Kevin was born January 28, 1963, in Jourdanton, Texas. He was the second child to Sally LaBeff Farrer and Asa Moody Farrer. The family lived in Pleasanton, Texas, where Kevin and his sister, Kim, spent their childhood.

Kevin discovered his love for golf at an early age. He excelled in competitions while attending Pleasanton High School, where he graduated in 1981. The success he found in his game as a teenager led him to South Plains College on a golf scholarship, followed by completion of his Bachelor of Business Administration degree at Sul Ross State University. Kevin spent the majority of his life in West Texas including the communities of Marfa, Fort Davis, Study Butte and Alpine. He had numerous careers in his lifetime such as a greenskeeper, teacher’s aide and car salesman, but he spent the last years of his life employed by West Texas National Bank in Alpine and Study Butte. 

Left to cherish his memory are his children, Asa Brucks Farrer and Faith Alexandria Farrer; stepdaughter Brittany Bader Decker; mother Sally LaBeff Farrer; sister Kim Farrer Fine; nephew Justin Michael Fine (Astrid); niece Kristin Nicole Fine; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins who loved him dearly. Preceding him in death was his father Asa Moody Farrer; maternal grandparents Ray and Frances LaBeff; paternal grandparents Asa and Ida Farrer; brother-in-law James Michael Fine; and special friend, Joe Richardson.

Kevin was an easy going, kind-hearted soul who made friends easily. He touched the lives of many during his career and during his many rounds of golf. Kevin will be terribly missed, but comfort is taken in knowing that he is at peace.
