He lived in Des Moines two years before moving to California.

His only son, Eldred, and a foster daughter, Virginia, preceded him in death. He is survived by his wife; three brothers, Ralph Farlow of Denison, Glen Farlow of Tacoma, Wash., and Earl Farlow of Winterset; and a sister, Mrs. Marie Greenwood of Winterset.
