To The Stars"
Bill Farmer's spirit sought the vastness of outer space with all
its challenges, mysteries, and opportunities. In death, he'll
finally reach his destination."

betterment. He was listed in the 1962-63 edition of Leaders
in American Science.

and philosopher. He moved to San Bernardino, California in the

company, a vending machine company, and a custom drapery firm.
He also worked as a realtor and radio commentator.
Surviving Mr. Farmer are three daughters and two
sons-in-law; eight grandchildren; and eleven great grandchildren.
. . . and the day
will come . . . when the solar system will be little remembered;
as are the seas from whence we came, and the name of earth will
be seldom used, unless by some god like creature narrating a fading
legend, about a little world outgrown . . . far away among the
stars . . .
We must not fail -- "so much to do -- so little done"
SURVIVAL = KNOWLEDGE and NOW
