Obituary for John J. Farrenkopf

John J Farrenkopf
August 11, 1951 - July 3, 2019
Ellenville, NY Formerly of New Windsor, NY

John J Farrenkopf of Elleville, NY formerly of New WIndsor NY passed away at St. Lukes Hospital on July 3, 2019 surrounded by his family. He was 67. John was born in Newburgh NY to the late Joseph C Farrenkopf and Norma (Hanna) Farrenkopf on August 11, 1951. John attended Newburgh Free Academy. He retired from local 373 Plumbers and steamfitters.
John was a 50 year life member of New Windsor Fire Department where his passion for fighting fires was matched by his passion for motorcycles. His love for motorcycles was passed down to his children. When his love for riding was forced to stop his next adventure for freedom was brought by his Honda S2000. Above all he loved nothing more than his family and helping others. His heart was matched by his ability to talk and be the life of the party. If there was anything John could do better than anyone else is be honest and speak his mind. You would never have to guess how he felt about you because you would always know it. If you were lucky enough to be his friend you would know he would give the shirt off his back. His love was unmatched and his stories could bring you to tears with laughter and his soul will live on with the stories that can be shared for years to come.
He was predeceased by his father Joseph C. Farrenkopf, Uncle William & Aunt Eileen Farrenkopf, Grandparents Joseph & Matilda Farrenkopf. Father in law Gordon Ray.
He is survived by his loving wife Kathleen (Ray) Farrenkopf, at home. His sons Joseph Farrenkopf and Justin Farrenkopf (Rachael Guerette). His cousins Eileen, Vinny, Carmella and Vinny Jr. Yonnone, William Farrenkopf Jr. of New Windsor, mother in law Barbara Ray, of New Windsor, sister in law Debi Ray, of New Windsor.
