Linson Farless, 76, of Morrison passed away Wednesday evening, May 11, at NHC HealthCare Center in McMinnville.
He was born June 3, 1945 in Van Buren County to his parents, the late John Herman and Delma Hillis Farless. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife Deborah J. Farless, sisters Wavie Schrecengost and Mary Farless, brothers Carson Farless, Leonard Farless and William Thomas Farless, and nephew Ronnie Schrecengost. Linson was a plain country man who loved and was loved by so many. He was a hard worker and loved working the land. He worked in nursery work and to have only had a third-grade education, he knew more about plants and trees than someone with a degree. Linson was funny and enjoyed life. He was a member of McMinnville Church of God, formerly Locust Street Church of God. He leaves to cherish his memory, three daughters, Lisa (Brian) Holt and Amy (Brent) Aughinbaugh, both of McMinnville and Clarlisa Farless of Cookeville, four grandchildren, Alicia (Brandon) Knight, Ciara Holt, Beckham Holt and Malachi Aughinbaugh, two great-grandchildren, Gracie and Sadie, honorary family members, the family of his late wife, Deborah J. Farless, brother Troy Farless, two sisters, Earlene Jennings and Debra Bess, sister-in-law Janice Farless, and several nieces and nephews and a host of family and friends.
