Are you planning a service for yourself, or for a loved one? Are you looking to make sure your funeral officiant is professional, personable, and the best possible choice? James Farrah has been officiating at funerals for over 15 years and performs services weekly. He specializes in making sure your service is personalized for you. There isn’t a one size fits all cookie cutter service with James. He is a gifted communicator who connects quickly with an audience as he provides an atmosphere of warmth, love, comfort, and hope. He is comfortable speaking to a few, or a few thousand.


Planning a funeral or celebration of life service can feel daunting. James is here to walk with you through the entire service from start to finish. He will offer his recommendations as requested based on 15 years of experience, having walked alongside thousands of family members as they seek to say goodbye with honor, dignity, respect, warmth, and when appropriate, even with a little humor. Your guests will love him. He often tells the story of when he once received a standing ovation from a family after one particular service (there weren’t quite enough chairs).


James is a highly sought after officiant serving the Los Angeles and Orange Counties, as well as some areas of Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura Counties. He is also, if scheduling permits, able to officiate outside these surrounding areas. 


Whether you want a religious, interfaith, non-religious, or non-denominational service, James will help you custom design your celebration service.
