Funeral services for Scot Farrar, 63, former Tennessee football Volunteer, will be Thursday at 7 p.m. at Click Funeral Home Farragut Chapel. There may be some big fishing stories.

Farrar died on Memorial Day.


Coach Bill Battle was saddened by the news.

“There are way too many ol’ Vols passing way too soon. Scot was a good player but very quiet. I can’t recall any interesting stories, which is actually a good thing in that he never caused any trouble.”

Farrar, originally from Manchester, was an offensive tackle in 1976 and 1977, last season for Battle and first for John Majors as coach. Scot stayed in Knoxville and became a prominent Realtor – and very good fisherman.

He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Connie Webber Farrar, and daughter Ashley Tipton.

The family will receive friends 5-6:45 p.m. on Thursday at Click. The Rev. Larry Trotter will lead a celebration of life. Burial will be at 1 p.m. CST Friday at Rose Hill Memorial Gardens in Manchester. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the American Heart Association.
