Ricky Allen Farnham
Ricky Allen Farnham of Strattanville, passed away Oct. 15, 2018, at his home. He was 46 years of age.
He was born Sept. 30, 1972, in Jamestown, N.Y., the son of William J. and Ida A. (Burgess) Farnham. His parents survive. In 2014, he married the former Katrina Lynn Neal, who also survives.
Ricky was known as a loving and caring person and was a good caregiver. He enjoyed spending time with his family, taking his grandchildren on fishing trips and going hunting.

He previously served as a captain of the engine crew for the Bemus Point Volunteer Fire Department. He worked as a supervisor for the village of Bemus Point Highway Department. Ricky was employed recently as the night auditor for the Holiday Inn Express in Clarion.
