For a number of years Farris engaged in ranching in Yolo, but ten years ago he retired from active pursuits. When stricken Farris was making his home in Woodland with Mrs. Frank Mumma, a cousin.

Farris leaves a brother, J. L. Farris of LosAngeles, a sister, Mrs. Emily Clayton of Oakland, a niece, Mrs. Edna Clayton Oree of Oakland and two nephews, Fred Farris of San Jose and Charles Farris of Oakland.

Arrangements for the funeral are being completed by the Krellenberg company.
