    Default re: Death Of An Inspector, Jim Farmer



    It is with great sadness that I must share with you that my father, Jim Farmer passed away from complications due to a stroke on 5/19/2010.

    We will be having a Celebration of Life Memorial for my Father next Wednesday and I would like to extend and invitation for anyone to come and celebrate Jim and his amazing life. It will be located at the Veteran's Plaza at the Rancho Tapo Community Park. I would appreciate it if you could please pass this information along to anyone who knew my father that you think might like to attend. If you have any questions, please contact me by email or by phone at (805) 302-8781

    Celebration of Life Memorial for Jim Farmer
    Wednesday - May 26th at 1pm
    Rancho Tapo Community Park and Veterans Plaza
    3700 Avenida Simi, Simi Valley, CA

    Please note that this park is behind the Simi Valley DMV and Courthouse that are located on the corner of Tapo Canyon and Alamo. Although the physical address to the park is Avenida Simi, the easiest way to get to the Veteran's Plaza is not actually by that street. From Tapo Canyon, please turn left onto Alamo and go to Veterans Plaza Parkway which is the entrance to the DMV and Courthouse parking lot (it does have an intersection light). Once you have turned into Veterans Plaza Parkway, you will see the park on your left which shares the same parking lot with the DMV and Courthouse. The location of the Celebration of Life will be next to the Veteran's Plaza which is also next to the lake. If you need additional directions, please call my cell (805) 302-8781

    Thank You,
