You’ll always remember the doctor that delivered your babies.  Many moms and dads are remembering longtime obstetrician/gynecologist Dr. William Farley.

He died Thursday in his home at the age of 91.  According to Illinois Valley Community Hospital, Farley had delivered more than 15,000 babies over 57 years.

Farley is remembered for offering “a fifth one is free” deal on deliveries.

His funeral services are pending in the Mueller Funeral Home in Peru.
