Reggie was born on March 3, 1950 in Roxboro, NC to Oveda (Lunsford) Farrish and Langston Farrish Sr. He graduated from Ballou High School in 1969. He served in United States Army while completing a tour during the Vietnam War. He was employed by Waco's VA Medical Center, where he worked until his retirement in Sept. 2006 after 27 years of service. He married Anita Farrish on Dec. 21, 1987, who was a devoted wife and caregiver until his death 30 years later.
Family and friends remember him as "Mr. Fix It" since he was very talented with hands and in electrical work. In his leisure, you would often catch him doing crossword puzzles, putting puzzles together or watching old westerns, crime shows, or "HOW IT'S MADE". He was a reliable husband, father and friend. He loved family and truly took his role seriously. He was definitely a man of his word. Reggie was also known to be a devoted Redskins fan, and a true Dallas Cowboy hater.
The family would like to thank special friends/sisters, Doris Dove, Miley Pulliam, and Lilllian Ruiz-Cruz for their continued support.
