Danville, NH — Jason “Jay” R. Farley, 30, of Danville, NH, died peacefully Tuesday, January 28, 2014, at Mass General Hospital surrounded by his loving family, after an 11 month courageous battle with Melanoma.
Jay was born in Lawrence and was raised in Methuen. He was a 2001 graduate of Central Catholic High School and attended Salve Regina University with the class of 2005. Jay had incredible love for his family and friends. His passions were fishing, sports, and his love for playing professional poker. He enjoyed spending his summer months in Las Vegas when he would participate in the World Series of Poker Events. He had an incredible love for animals, especially his own dogs, Otis, Debo, and Leroy. He had a smile and personality that could light up even the darkest room the second he walked in. He will be severely missed, but never forgotten by all those who loved and knew him.
Jay is survived by his loving parents, Brenda (Conway) Farley and Gary Farley; his brother and best friend, Matt; his maternal grandmother, Grace Conway; his aunt and uncle, Jackie and Jose Santiago; his aunt and uncle, Cheryl and Mike Conway; his close cousins, Corey Santiago, Taryn Conway, Ashley Conway; and several other aunts, uncles, and cousins. Jay was predeceased by his maternal grandfather, John "Jack" Conway.
Jay’s family would like to thank the staff and doctors at Mass General Hospital for the compassionate care they gave to Jay throughout his battle. We would also like to thank a close friend and Jay’s primary care doctor, Dr. Nelson Matos for the amazing care and support he provided Jay with during his battle.
