Lyman Dale Farley passed away September 30, 2021 at his home in Herriman, surrounded by family. Born March 29, 1934, in Carr Fork, Bingham Canyon, Utah, he was the fifth child of Perry Jennings Bryan Farley and Elva Jane Doty.
Lyman married Audrea Eastman on January 30, 1959, in Herriman, Utah. He served in the US Army stationed in Korea, followed by service in the Utah National Guard. He began his career at Kennecott Copper working on the track gang at the Bingham Canyon Mine. He later became a brakeman on the ore trains and ended his career as a welder/boiler maker.

He is survived by his wife, Audrea, two sons, Scott (Debbie) Farley and Jerry (Wendy) Farley, four siblings, Della Briggs, Joyce Lowry, Gene (Janalee) Farley, Sherryl Rosenhan, four grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
Lyman was a happy person who always had a smile on his face. He filled the lives of those around him with humor, and the occasion outburst of song.

Audrea, we were so sorry to hear of Lyman's failing health, and then passing. Wow, you had 60+ years together here and you have eternity to look forward to! We love you! You will be in our thoughts and prayers. Valerie and Gordon Butterfield

Condolences to Audrie and all your children and grandchildren. I’m sorry for your loss.
Lyman, we are going to miss you so much. Since I was a child I loved seeing you over the fence, your random songs, your mechanical abilities. I'll also never forget the time you rescued us after my dad got lost and broke down on some dirt road in the middle of nowhere. The back of your old blazer was amazing that day. I look forward to seeing you again someday and hopefully I'll be on your side of the fence when we catch up. Rest in peace.
Prayers and love to the Farly family
