Morris Dale Farmer went home to be with the Lord on April 12, 2017 in Springfield, Missouri. He was born on May 24, 1935 in Aztec, New Mexico, and lived throughout New Mexico for most of his life.
He was a proud member of the United States Army and served in France. He moved to Missouri with his family in 2007. Dale was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish. He also enjoyed gardening, oil painting, and pitching softball. He was known to always be ready with a story or a slice of homemade bread. Most of all, he was a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend.
Dale was preceded in death by his father, Calvin Washington Farmer; his mother, Cora Katherine (Gibbs) Farmer; three brothers, Arthur “Ott” Farmer, James “Jack” Farmer, and Charles “Charlie” Farmer; and two sisters, Mary Farmer and Alma Farmer.
Dale is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Diane Kay (Robison) Farmer; a son, Steven Farmer and wife Eunice; a daughter, Linda Kay (Farmer) Moseley and husband Ken; a son, David Allen Farmer and wife Sharon; and daughter, Karen Lynn (Farmer) Faifer and husband Jerry; grandchildren, Ryan Moseley and wife Andrian, Kayla (Moseley) Westfall and husband Zachery, Michael Farmer and wife Brieanna, Chelsea (Farmer) Williams and husband Tylor, Shelby Farmer, Kolyn Farmer, Kory Farmer, Jerrett Faifer, Taylor Farmer, and Amanda Faifer; great-grandsons, Brayden Moseley, Marcus Dale Westfall, and Jackson Westfall; and innumerable other family and friends.
