Kevin Farrell, 64, of Howard Beach, NY, passed away on Wednesday, February 20, 2019, in Langhorne, PA.
Born in New Brunswick, NJ and raised in the West Windsor/Princeton area, Kevin was a graduate of Princeton High School class of 73.

Kevin loved family history and ancestry and was extremely proud of his Irish heritage. He was an avid reader and loved doing the daily newspaper crossword puzzles. Most importantly he loved time with family and taking trips to Lancaster, PA, Florida and Ocean Grove, NJ to visit with family and friends.
