Byron E. Faber ’73-A died June 6, 2019, following a short illness with leukemia. He was born in Akron, Ohio, the second-oldest of four brothers, to Edward Faber, MD, and Doris (Nuckles) Faber.
Dr. Byron Faber graduated from La Sierra University in 1969, after proudly serving our country in the U.S. Army. He then attended medical school at Loma Linda University School of Medicine. In 1977, he finished his residency in radiology at Loma Linda University Medical Center. In that same year, Dr. Faber came to practice in Bremerton, Washington, with Evergreen Radiology.
Dr. Faber retired in 2006. In the 1980s, he also obtained his medical license in Hawaii and occasionally worked on the islands of Kauai and Oahu. Following retirement, he married his wife, Patricia, and welcomed her two daughters, Movae Sawyer and Angela Hawkins, into his family.
Dr. Faber is remembered for his love of history, travel, Ferraris, Corvettes, and baking chocolate cakes. He was very proud of and a great friend to our local military, which was exemplified by his chairmanship of the Bremerton-Olympic Peninsula chapter of the Navy League, a position he truly loved throughout his retired years. His family misses his helpful spirit, fun-loving persona, and incredible work ethic.
Dr. Faber is survived by his children, Robert Faber, MD, Sandra, and David; two grandchildren, Kate and Owen; and his brothers, Bruce, Bob, and Bill.
