Paul Farkas, 94, passed away peacefully at his home in Cuyahoga Falls on Saturday September 28, 2019 with his family by his side.
Born in Akaszto, Hungary, Paul came to the United States in 1956 among others
to have escaped from the Hungarian Revolution. Along with his future wife they made this incredible journey leaving family and friends behind to start a better life. They settled in Doylestown, PA where they lived for over 50 years before moving to Ohio to be with family.
Paul touched so many lives with his generosity, humor, sensitivity and frankness. Always willing to help others he was fiercely loyal and dedicated to his family and friends. One of his greatest gifts was story telling.
