Jamie Farr Is 89: From Hard-up Veteran Who Couldn’t Buy a Proposal Ring to Happy Grandpa with a Ranch!


Jamie Farr was once struggling to make ends meet after bouts of unemployment.
Even after finding love, he couldn’t afford to buy an engagement ring to propose.
Now, the actor is 89 and lives a simple life away from the spotlight after years of making it big in the industry.

Jamie Farr, a beloved comedian in America, had various jobs as a delivery man, salesman, post office clerk, and maintenance man at a Chinchilla ranch while waiting for roles. Despite his hard work, he struggled to provide for his family for a time.

In pursuit of a better life, Farr joined the Army and was sent to postwar Korea and Japan after the Korean War ended. He eventually fell in love with a woman named Joy Richards, long before he became famous.
At the time, he was a 27-year-old struggling actor without work. Despite his circumstances, Farr took a leap of faith and proposed to Joy, saying, “I may not have everything, and you may be taking a chance on me, but why not take a chance on us?”
