His death certificate says he weighed 296 lbs. His brother speculated he weighed about 225 when he did Tommy Boy, at a time when he had been sober for at least a year.

Rob, don't you think he could probably be closer to 350lbs at the time of hs death? He looked morbidly obese
Editor Rob: I suppose it isn't impossible

I'd give him 5'7 or 5'7 1/4. But since he was husky, he looked shorter in general. But he was significantly taller than David spade in Tommy boy. So 5'7 or just above it seems about right.

What about his brothers Kevin and John Farley? I would estimate Kevin to be about 5'10 and John around the 6'1 range. Here's a picture with them and 6'1 Tom Arnold Click Here

Always wondered how tall he was. Sometimes he looked about average and other times he looked short. Made worse by the fact that he rarely if ever stood up strait and his weight. 5'8" seems to make the most sense.

"Chris Farley's height is 5ft 7.5in (171cm)"

As mentioned below, Swayze looked at least 3in taller than him on the Chippendales skit.
Phil Hartman (was around 5ft10-10.5) was always about 3in taller than him. Sandler easily had more than 2in on him aswell (is 5ft10 rather than 5ft9.5). Add Chris Rock to that list aswell

Farley had to be at least three inches taller than Spade. He Hollered a lot in his movies. That was hilarious.

5'8 seems right. Damn, I miss him.

Patrick Swayze had about 2" on him in their famous Chippendale skit on SNL and Swayze was 5'10" at that time (early 90's). It's said that died at around 300 pounds or very close to it.

He was a friend of mine and I don't think he was only 5'8" - I'm 5'7" and he never seemed that close to my height. I'm a girl so my heels were always taller than his, and I wasn't looking him right in the eye.
Alex said on 5/Jan/07
5'8 I agree on. He was def a 300lber or damn near it. 290 something he weighed before he died I believe.
Danimal said on 10/Aug/06
No, he was 5'8".

Great guy.5-8 to 5-8.5.
Sam said on 9/Aug/06
Yeah he was problably a good 5'8. His size in spirit though was way bigger.
Matt said on 10/Jun/06
Yeah, he was not very tall. He always looked a little shorter then Sandler. 5'8 sounds about right

Last night I saw his biography on A&E and they said he was 5'9 -- Maybe with his sneakers on.
Jody said on 29/Dec/05
I would agree totally with this. He was a big fella too.

I didn't know he died... but the 300lbs and 5'8'' seem about right.
