Where are you from?  Tell us about your family

            I was born and raised in Dunkirk, NY. My family was from here also. I have 2 beautiful daughters, a son, and a amazing wife. Every one of them is significantly their own personality type. My oldest daughter is a girly girl, youngest girl is tough and loving, my son has the biggest imagination, and I can see him doing something with buildings and architecture later in life. My wife is in the medical field and is the most stubborn yet family-oriented woman I have every met. That’s what won my heart!


What is your favorite hobby?

Building things “it doesn’t matter what” with my bare hands that someone else gave me the ideas for. Taking an idea and running with it to make something unique.

What are your favorite sports teams?

Buffalo Bills, Sabres, NY Yankees, and Chicago Bulls

Tell us what makes your division/department special

We are the special assignment task force in my eyes. We troubleshoot and assess roofing problems and can either fix them with simple patching or it leads to something huge and a new design. You never know what call will come in on the day-to-day basis.

What do you want people to know about our company?

Farrell roofing isn’t about money as a company they are about their employees lives, safety and best interests of the customer.

What do you love about what you do?

Every day is a different day. There is never a single day that is the same as the day before
