Theodore Alfred Faerber, Jr.
1932 ~ 2017
Theodore Alfred Faerber, Jr., 85, passed away on October 8, 2017 of complications from cancer. Born in S.L.C., Utah, on August 25, 1932 to Virginia Tonks Luckey and Theodore Alfred Faerber. He was a good husband, a good father, and a good citizen. Ted was a kind, quiet man who was so loved by his family and friends. He enjoyed helping people – no task was too large. He will be deeply missed. Graduated from South High School. Ted enlisted in 1952, becoming a Corporal in the U.S. Army during the Korean War Conflict. While serving in the war, where he ran the Telephone exchange in Korea, he met his wife Dong Yai (Maria) Faerber, who was working as a telephone operator in the telephone exchange office. After the Armistice Agreement in 1953, Ted came home to the U.S. and arranged to go back to Korea, where he and his bride were married in 1957, celebrating almost 60 years of marriage this month. Ted worked at many jobs, but most notable were those at Kennecott Copper Corporation (39 years), where he was a Supervisor in the Silver Refinery. He was a Lifelong Member of the IATSE (International Alliance of Theatrical & Stage Employees) where he worked on many Musicals, Movies, Commercials, Concerts and Theatre Events. He volunteered at the Carmelite Monastery in SLC for many years. He was an avid photographer, amateur astronomer, and craftsman. He loved science and technology as well as the great outdoors, especially Wyoming and the deserts of Utah. Survived by his wife Maria and children: Shirley S. Faerber (Jim McHugh), James A. Faerber (Sherri Lindberg), Ronald Faerber (Kari N. Mathews Faerber) and Grandchildren, Arrin C. Garrick, Jesse C. Faerber Craner (John Craner), Adam C. Faerber, Hannah N. Faerber, Jasmine Lindberg, Seth Lindberg, Chance Lindberg and Great Grandchildren Dante Ardon, Kayden Lindberg, Lexxi Carlson, Jason Lindberg and brother, Gordon Faerber (Carlene Faerber).
