We lost a dear friend we affectionately referred to as “The Mayor” of Kings Lake. We will miss his smile, hugs, laughter, and stories. Jim was passionate about making our community a better place. He will be missed more than words can express. We pray that we can honor his memory by continuing his causes. May you Rest In Peace Mr. Mayor.

My mother called me today with the sad news of our loss of Jim. Very sad news. I was fortunate to get to know him through my parents in Felsenthal, as he and his wife bought what we still call Momma Henson's House there in Felsenthal, and was the first home I had as a baby. I always liked that Jim owned the house that was so special to our family, having been built by my grandfather. Jim got the nickname in my family, created by me, of "Gatsby" as he was always having people over for fish fries. But he was no shadow host like the character from the novel. Jim was always happy to see us and specifically talk football with me. An LSU fan, but he could manage a kind word about the Hogs, haha. I am going to miss having him as part of our lives in Felsenthal. I know the other only living creatures that are happy about a world without Jim Farley are the fish of the Ouachita river, especially the crappie! Glad to have known Jim and my sympathies to all of his family and friends who are going to miss him too.

Carolyn, I am so sorry to get the news about Jimmy. The last time I saw him was at Sardis Church at one of the famous dinners. We were able to get a long talk in. Doris Russell, my cousin, called me and told me about Jimmy's passing and that she had visited with you. Please tell Jimmy's wife I'm so sorry for her loss.
