Albert Frank Faber Jr. ’35 *36

Published in June 5, 1996, issue

Al Faber died Jan. 19, 1996, in Wallingford, Conn., of Alzheimer's disease. He had lived at a health-care center for some time before he died. Al was born in Brooklyn in 1913 and attended Poly Prep before entering Princeton, where he was a mechanical engineering major. He roomed with Frank Cheston. While an undergraduate he represented Princeton at a student convention of the ASME, winning first prize for a paper he delivered as president of the Princeton Engineering Society. Al was a member of the Triangle Club and also worked for the Theatre Intime.

After earning a master's in engineering at Princeton, Faber engaged in management for several manufacturing concerns in Cleveland. He married Ruth Reichenbacher, a professional artist, in 1940. The Fabers moved to Connecticut in 1963, where they enjoyed water sports, yachting, and recreational running. Al wrote technical papers for several engineering societies, and pursued a hobby of woodworking and cabinet making. He found time to serve as a consulting engineer and sales representative in the Long Island Sound area.

We send most sincere sympathy to wife Ruth, daughter Lynn, and three grandchildren.
