May 26, 2018
“For more than 40 years, Herman “Denny” Farrell served New York with unparalleled grace and integrity, as an Assemblymember and as a proud, big-D Democrat who never wavered in his commitment to lifting people up.
“As someone who knew him since the age of 16, he was the ultimate mentor to me throughout my life, as he was for so many others. New York lost a giant in the passing of Denny Farrell, but he leaves behind a legacy of service that will live on for decades. His wonderful family is in my thoughts and prayers.”
