Stephen Farrar Obituary, Death- RAF Waddington conveys their deepest condolences to his family and friends as they share the news of the demise of Flight Sergeant Stephen Farrar.
At the age of 23, Steve enlisted in the Royal Air Force and worked his way up through the ranks of the Personnel Support trade group over the course of 23 years. His most recent position was as the Recovery Officer in the Personnel Support team at RAF Waddington, where he had worked previously. He received a commendation for his work as a Welfare Officer with Rosie Harding, served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, and was in command of the Royal Air Force Fishing Team. His career was truly remarkable.
Scott Murray, a Warrant Officer in charge of Personal Support, had this to say about Steve: “Steve was loved and respected by all who met him professionally or socially.” His assistance to our most vulnerable troops while serving as the Recovery Officer within the Personal Support team has been nothing short of extraordinary and has made a significant impact on the lives of a great number of people. We will miss him much in the workplace.
despite the fact that his passion for Manchester United caused our personal office relationship to be tested sometimes. It is difficult to put into words how much he will be missed by the Personal Support staff because he always had the time, tolerance, and willingness to talk to and listen to everyone. During this difficult time, we are keeping his family in our thoughts and sending our deepest condolences.
Steve is survived by a son, a daughter, and a devoted family, all of whom wish to convey their condolences through the following statement.
Since the passing of our father, we have received a lot of kind words, and it has offered us some comfort during this very terrible time to know how loved and respected our father was.
“We have been tremendously touched by all of the nice messages and cards that we have received since his passing. Dad’s tenure in the RAF, during which he achieved many of his greatest professional accomplishments, was a source of constant pride for him. We, as a family, could not have been more proud of Dad and all that he had accomplished over the course of his life. Blue Skies Flight Sergeant Farrar, your passing has created a tremendous vacuum in the family that is the Royal Air Force.
