Lewis Isaac Farrer Sr.

Sardis, GA  –              Lewis “Buddy” Isaac Farrer Sr., 73, loving husband of Tiny Jane Peebles Farrer, peacefully entered into his eternal rest Wednesday night, October 19, 2022 at his residence. Funeral services will be held in the James Funeral Home Chapel at 2:00 P.M. Wednesday, October 26, 2022. Interment will follow in Mt. Moriah Cemetery in Matthews.

Lewis grew up and attended Wrens High School.  He quit high school in 1968 to join the Army where he earned his certification as a mechanic.  After returning home, he worked as a mechanic for Snider Ford and Henderson Chevrolet in Louisville, and in the paint & body shop for Ironex in Wadley.  He also sold, repossessed and worked on cars for Blockers Used Cars before turning his life over solely to the Lord.  Lewis completed in his studies in April 1999 from World Christianship Ministries after which he pastored Healing Hand Ministries and Crossroad Evangelical Church before becoming a full-time evangelist.  Lewis did enjoy fishing, NASCAR and WWE Wrestling but his main focus was God’s work and his ministry.  His natural ability to meet and talk with people allowed him to love them and share the gospel.  He was never “pushy” and was always considerate; however, he did have a great concern for everyone and their spiritual decisions.  This man of great faith was a wonderful husband, devoted father, dedicated brother and friend, and will be remembered for his loving kindness, encouraging love, and gentle nature.  We are assured Lewis is now in his forever home with his Lord and Savior.

Lewis was preceded in death by his parents, Lessie Sylvania Stewart Farrer and Asa Miller Farrer; and two siblings, David Farrer and Nellie Reeves. Others left to cherish his memories include his children, Barbara Farrer, Lewis “Buddy” Farrer Jr. (April M.), Leon Farrer Sr. (April), Brandi Invester, Jerry Taylor Jr. and Joseph Peebles; two sisters, Jeannie Holland and Gloria Francis; fourteen (14) grandchildren; one great grandchild; nieces, nephews, other extended family and many friends.
