Walter William Farrell was born on August 15, 1944 in Mobile, Alabama to the late Charles and Marie Farrell. “Butch” as family and close friends knew him grew up and avid sports fan. He loved baseball, football and basketball. He came from a very close-knit family and after graduating from Central High School his journey led him to Boston, Massachusetts in the mid to late 60’s. He married Jeannette Marshall of Boston in which they had three beautiful children. Bryant, Andrea and Peter.

Walter first worked briefly at the Quincy Shipyard then an almost 30-year career at the Gillette Company in South Boston. After retirement he worked part time for United Airlines. Walter was an Elk and a Mason. He was also a bartender at the Woodbine Elks Lodge. Walter loved to dance and there was never ever a dull moment when he was around. No matter what the occasion you could almost always count on him being there. If he would disagree with you, he still had love for you. He was truly a handful to deal with at times. Walter was always a sharp dresser. You never saw him careless with his appearance.
