Longtime NORTHEAST OHIO radio personality TOM FARRAR, known to audiences as TOM SULLIVAN, died FRIDAY, reports THE BEACON JOURNAL. FARRAR, 53, had been battling cancer for some time, former colleague NICK ANTHONY said.
FARRAR spent more than 30 years in radio. He was the self-proclaimed "Doctor of Rock 'n' Roll" in his midday slot at WKDD in the 1980s and also worked for stations, including WQMX, WHBC and the old M105-FM in CLEVELAND, now WMJI.
He leaves two daughters, EMILY FAYE MARQUARD of OLMSTED FALLS and KATE ELOISE CHIVERS of ALBUQUERQUE, NM, and his ex-wife, DEBBIE FARRAR of JACKSON TOWNSHIP. A memorial service will be held at 7p WEDNESDAY at Swigart-Easterling Funeral Home in CANAL FULTON.
