Farrell died peacefully Jan. 18, 2022.
He was born May 19, 1950, to William Forrest Braziel and Margaret Hobbs Braziel in Savannah, Ga., and attended Savannah Country Day School before entering with our class in 1968. Following sophomore year he enrolled at the University of Georgia, earning a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry in 1975. He married his companion for life, Nina Nightingale, in that year.
Farrell continued his studies at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta as did Nina, earning a medical degree in 1979.
Farrell spent his career as an award-winning psychiatrist in Roswell, Ga. He will be remembered for his sharp mind, wry sense of humor, and his continual ability to beat his friends in golf. Per his request, his tombstone will read: “Lucky in life, Lucky in love, Lucky right up to the date above.” He is buried at Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah.
Farrell is survived by his wife of 47 years, Nina; their two sons, Charlie and his wife Sarah, and Forrest and his wife Lisa; brother-in-law Brailsford Nightingale and his wife Alice; niece Louisa Nightingale; and nephew Brailsford Nightingale and his wife Brea. The class sends condolences to his family.
