Paul Victor Farris

11/2/1983 - 5/27/2007
taken away too soon


This website is a place where we honor and remember Paul. It is a place where family and friends can see and listen to Paul.

It is a place where you can visit and reflect about Paul, about the frailty of life or whatever else matters to you.

Paul had an impact on many people during life and also after his death. His spirit will live with us forever.

We will continue to do everything that Paul expects of us, and we hope that you will too.

We'll use this site to tell you about Paul.

We'll use it as a place where Edina High School and Somerville High School applicants for the Paul Farris Memorial Scholarship can learn about Paul.

We'll use it for our advocacy against unnecessary high speed police pursuits, because if simple judgment had been used on that early morning of May 27, 2007, Paul would still be here with us.

Advocacy to stop unnecessary police pursuits

'Police pursuits, for the most part, are merely a passing newspaper story or television headline, forgotten by readers and viewers a few minutes later. But for the hundreds of relatives and thousands of friends of these innocent victims, the pain is real and never goes away. Never.'

I hear people say that time heals the pain. Well, it doesn't. Not even a little bit. Time strengthens me. Time allows me to hide the hurt so you need not live with it as I do. jgf
