LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Brian Farnon obituary

It’s with sadness that I discovered the passing of my friend, the legendary Brian Farnon. I came across the obituary on the Internet.

Many people will remember how Farnon’s original production of Ebenezer Scrooge helped create a cherished Tahoe Christmas tradition. For many years he led the Brian Farnon Orchestra, the quintessential showroom big band. He became my friend and I have many memories of his warmth, kindness, devilish wit, and charm. His passing marks the end of an era. Since I moved to Carson City, I haven’t seen the Tribune very often and I wanted to make sure that the folks in Tahoe knew of his passing.
