Born in: Athens, Georgia
Resided in: Loganville, Georgia

Michael Daniel Farrin, III., 55, was so many things to so many people. Son, brother, husband, father, friend, and Papa Mike.

Mike was born December 7, 1968 in Athens, GA, to Michael and Gwen Farrin Jr., of Vesta, GA. He was an avid outdoorsman; a lover of fishing, boating, and hunting. As a proficient gunsman and an engineer by trade, Mike prioritized safety above all else, and held himself to a rigorous standard of excellence, bar none.

Mike was a man of faith and family: provider, protector, and leader. He cultivated a household rich in close family bonds, supported by his wife, Rebecca, who dedicated herself to homeschooling their children. Together, Mike and Rebecca raised their four kids the right way, and Mike was very proud of the young men and women into whom they have grown.

Lovingly nicknamed “Mr. Worldwide,” Mike Farrin was larger than life, and the life of the party. Employing his signature sardonic wit, meticulous attention to detail, and unassuming wisdom, Mike was a naturally gifted storyteller, who could repeat the same tale ten times and you’d never get bored. He and Rebecca loved to travel, imbibe in local food, and soak up vibrant cultures. He never met a stranger.

Survivors, in addition to his parents, include his loving wife of 29 years, Rebecca; four children, Daniel Farrin (Kat) of Los Angeles, CA, Nik Farrin (Tiffany) of Elberton, Ga; Miah (Srdjan) Veselinovic of Smyrna, GA; Eden Farrin (Per) of Marietta; GA. Sisters, Michele (Chris) Autry, Monroe GA and Marsha (Lasserre) Bradley, Cincinnati, OH.

He took great pride as ‘Great’ Uncle Mike to many nieces and nephews.

“Papa Mike” to Sebastian, Jasper, Nikolai, and eagerly anticipating the arrival of their twin bothers Sawyer Michael Farrin and Archer Daniel Farrin.
