The Western Australian forged a spectacular career in the WAFL before and after a successful stint with Geelong in the VFL, between 1962 and 1967.

One of the greatest ruckmen of all time, Farmer was named in the AFL Team of the Century in 1996 and as captain of the Indigenous Team of the Century in 2005.

Farmer, a three-time Sandover medallist, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease 24 years ago.
