Stephen Farrelly, 83, a noted Albuquerque rental property owner and retired Sandian, died on Saturday, February 11, 2006, following a short illness. Originally of Rye, NY, Stephen had been a resident of Albuquerque since 1948. He served dutifully in the U.S. Air Force during WWII in Italy and was recipient of a baccalaureate in Philosophy from the University of New Mexico in 1952. Stephen subsequently went to work as a high-speed test photographer at Sandia National Laboratories, retiring in 1971 in order to concentrate more fully on his burgeoning rental property business, a business that he played an active role in until the day of his death. Former president of the La Noche Garden Club and publisher of the Bon Vivant wine guide, Stephen was also an avid still photographer, birdwatcher, woodworker, and world traveler. He loved life and all who had the pleasure of knowing him will sorely miss his cleverness and humor. Stephen leaves behind his loving wife of 60 years, Flora; son, David and wife, Mary Ellen; daughter, Diana and husband, Thomas Scalf; and two grandchildren, Jeremiah and Victoria. ''For now I am ready to go. The time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight. I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.'' A Gathering of family and friends will be held Thursday, 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at French Mortuary, University Blvd. Chapel. French Mortuary 1111 University Blvd. NE 843-6333
