Farley Benjamin Granger

Farley B. Granger passed away on February 21, 2011, at the age of 74. He was born August 5, 1936, to Janet (Stewart) and Harvey Granger, in Oakland, Calif., and grew up in what is now Fremont, Calif. In 1954, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in Korea.

Farley lived and worked in the Bay Area until he moved to Medford, Ore., in 1991, to help care for his aging parents, and be closer to friends and family. He was a life-long student of religion, philosophy, science, history and music. A highly accomplished artist, he continued to paint until his last illness. His keen interest in spirituality led to a more than a 20-year relationship with the Sikh spiritual path, based at the Lighthouse Center of Oregon (LCO) in Sutherlin, which brought him a great measure of peace. One of the highlights of this experience was a trip to India to study with the Master, Thakar Singh, in the early 1990s.

Farley will be remembered by his many acquaintances in and around Medford for his charm and kindness, and his readiness to stop for a friendly chat.

Farley leaves behind his sister, Jan (Peter) Fish, of Gold Hill; brother, William (Fran) Granger, of Sacramento; nephews, Scott (Betti), and Russ (Ang), of Calif.; and numerous cousins and close friends on the West Coast (especially friends Mona and Tisa, and the Jackson Tepa family). Predeceasing him were his parents, Janet and Harvey Granger, and his loving nephew, Tom Granger Fish.

A memorial service will be held Friday, March 4, 2011, at 2:00 p.m., at Eagle Point National Cemetery, in Eagle Point, Ore. Arrangements are through Conger~Morris of Central Point. Donations in his name may be made to either the Lighthouse Center, 7637 Tyee Rd., Umpqua, OR 97486, or the Tom Fish Memorial Skatepark fund.
