Franklin David Farley (1952-2022)

Franklin David Farley, loving husband of Rose (Dimeo) Farley for fifty-one
wonderful years, went home to be with his Savior November 16, 2022. Dave was
born in Logan, West Virginia, the son of the late Wirt and Louise Farley, and
brother of the late William E. Farley. His family moved to Cleveland when he
was just three years of age.
He grew up in Cleveland and met his high school sweetheart in 1968 at John
Marshall High School. They graduated in 1970 and were married in 1971. Dave
gave his life to Christ in March of 1973, and spent most of his adult life serving
as an associate pastor, serving his Lord, and pointing others to Christ. He lived
by the Scripture, “…As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua
24:15) Dave was an incredible father to five children and a beloved Papa to
fifteen grandchildren.
Survivors, in addition to his wife, include his five children: Cynthia, David
(Angela), Sandra, Bill (Katharine), and John (Amber). He was the beloved
grandfather to fifteen grandchildren: Trevor, Kit, Cole, Alyssa, Ethan, Logan,
Kenny, Brooke, Leah, Brienna, Phoebe, MaKenna, Kaleigh, Levi, and Hailey.
Dave is also survived by his uncle Ted (Janet) Dingess, many brothers-in-law,
sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, and cousins who loved him greatly.
Services will be at Cleveland Baptist Church, 4431 Tiedeman Rd., Brooklyn,
