James Mark Farber, 60, went to be with our Lord Wednesday, November 8, 2017, at his residence in Delta Lake Resort with his parents and friends by his side. A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, November 17, at First United Methodist Church in Edcouch, Texas.

He was born in Spokane April 29, 1957, to JoAnne and James B. Farber. His family moved to Bonners Ferry when he was five years old. There he graduated from Bonners Ferry High School.

As a child Mark was a very curious one and liked to find out how things worked. He worked for his dad in an auto parts store and grew up with a lot of mechanical knowledge. This led him to go to truck driving school and got his CDL license.

He drove commercial trucks, logging trucks and any big construction equipment and loved it. His second love was animals. He rescued many dogs, cats and birds

In 2009 he moved to Delta Lake Resort to live close to his parents.

He is preceded in death by his brother, Brian Douglas Farber, and his grandparents.

Mark is survived by sons James Farber and Brett Farber, both of Idaho, and Brian Farber, California, three grandchildren, his parents JoAnne and James B. Farber, sister Jennifer Manskey, numerous nieces and nephews, precious friends Amy and Joe and Terry Leal, and his dogs, Queenie and Teddy.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to First United Methodist Church in Edcouch or Kindred Hospice in Harlingen.
