G. Thomas Farthing

Sandersville, GA  – Golan “Thomas” Farthing, 53, loving husband of 35 yrs to Cheryl Kobetitsch Farthing, entered into rest early Sunday morning, February 24, 2013 at his residence. Funeral services will be held at 2:00PM on Thursday, February 28, 2013 in the James Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Larry Glover officiating. Interment will follow in the Mt. Horeb Baptist Church Cemetery in Wrens.

Tom retired as a truck driver for Howard Sheppard after 20 yrs of service. He enjoyed hunting and loved his “puppies”.  His passion was motorcycles—riding his Harley—and was a member of the Steel Horsemen Motorcycle Club. Tom was a big man with a big heart—he truly cared for others. His most cherished time was with his family.

Tom is preceded in death by his parents, Mary Irby and Ivan Farthing; and a brother, John Hayes. Other survivors include his son, T. J. Farthing (Misty) of Davisboro; a sister, Sonya Miller of Wrens; a brother, Mike Farthing of Hollywood FL; two grandchildren, Raven Eastmead and Harley Eastmead; several nieces and nephews; and many cousins and friends.  Pallbearers will be Jason Andrews, Dan Boatwright, Don Henderson, Louis “Redd” Landrum, Doug Mentor, Kenny Raburn, Zack Scott and Zeb Scott. Serving as honorary pallbearers is Mug Albritton and members of the Steel Horsemen Motorcycle Club.
Life Is But A Stopping Place

Life is but a stopping place, a pause in what’s to be
a resting place along the road to sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way.
We all were meant to learn some thing,
But never meant to stay.
Our destination is a place far greater than we know;
For some, the journey’s quicker,
For some, the journey’s slow.

And when the journey finally ends,
We’ll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.
