Jeffrey W. Farina, age 49, passed away on February 20, 2019 after a hard fought battle with cancer.
Born in Akron, he lived in Mogadore most of his life and graduated from Mogadore High School. Jeff was a huge sports fan of the Browns, Indians, Cavs, Ohio State football, Mogadore High School football and Detroit Red Wings. He enjoyed fishing with his brother or friends at the local lakes and streams. Vacationing in Maine was a favorite for him, especially Marginal Way, Pemaquid Point, and of course chowing down on lobsters. Jeff enjoyed spending time with his family, cooking, grilling or smoking dinners, and his mother’s meat cookies.
Preceded in death by his grandparents, Fred and Frances Farina and Carl and Audrey Robinson, Jeff is survived by his parents, Fred and Jennie (Robinson) Farina; brothers, James (Sheila), Timothy; son, Tony; daughter, Leiha; special niece, Nicole Farina; special nephew, James F. Farina; many aunts, uncles, cousins, and girlfriend, Christina Caetta. Jeff had many good and loyal friends that will miss him.
