Charles F. "Cory" Farrell, IV

Farrell, Cory (Charles Francis IV) of Petersburg, NJ died suddenly at his home on November 12, 2022. He was 43.

Cory was a loving son, a devoted husband, and a proud father. He enjoyed the beach, the woods, and spending time with his family. He practiced Tai Chi & Qigong and taught martial arts regularly, including Judo & Jiujitsu. 

Born in Havertown, PA, he was formerly of Ocean City, NJ, where he graduated high school in 1997. Later he earned a psychology degree at Stockton University. He worked for several good years at Able Acres in Estell Manor.

Cory, a professionally trained chef, had a special love for food and cooking. For most of his life he rarely missed a "Sunday dinner." As a boy, meatballs were his favorite. As an adult he surprised everyone with a new-found love of broccoli rabe.
