Manning Farmer, 99, of Landrum, passed away on November 4, 2021. He was the son of the late Dean Hoke and Lyda Kemp Farmer and the husband of the late Mary Burdell Queen Farmer.
He was a member of Ebenezer Welcome Baptist Church and a retired carpenter. Manning loved to farm and said he had been a farmer all his life. Two of his famous sayings were "Hard work never hurt anybody" and "Come back and see me, I will treat you so many ways you are bound to like one of them". He was an old wood worker, specialty farmer and famous for his corn. He definitely had a Green Thumb. He was a wonderful friend to many, but most of all he was the best dad, father in law, papa and grand papa ever.
He is survived by a son, Darrell Farmer (Tonya); grandchildren, Brittany Roberts (John), Casey Parham (Josh), Jason Farmer, Weston Leopard (Savannah), Colt Leopard and Kora Carson; seven great grandchildren.
In addition to his wife, he was predeceased by a brother, Jimmy Farmer and a sister, Irene Brown.
