William Hill Fauber
November 24, 1959 – March 11, 2022
William Hill “Bill” Fauber born in Staunton passed away in March of 2022 in his hometown of Richmond, VA.
Bill is survived by his daughter, Hannah Fauber; sister Patricia Callahan; nieces Shawn Callahan Perkins and Keagan Castro of Chicago, IL; and nephew Barth Berry of Staunton; and so many friends that he loved. Those that left before him include his son Alec; his parents, Jim and Edna Fauber; his sister, Joyce; his brother, Jimmy and his nephew Chris.
Bill never met a stranger! His stories and adventures kept everyone laughing and entertained. He enjoyed fishing, travelling and being with his friends and children, Hannah and Alec. He loved nature and was naturally an expert in all things regarding plants and animals. Bill’s long list of pets included snakes, turtles, lizards, two ferrets, and a skunk and several prize winning farm animals. There wasn’t a plant, no matter how exotic, that he couldn’t identify on sight.
A memorial service and gathering for Bill will be held at a later date. We will keep all informed and spread the word.

Bill was such a kind and fun loving guy! He is so missed! Prayers for the family and please keep us posted on his Memorial service.
I never didn’t laugh, smile or act the the fool when I was around Brother Bill. My God open his wonderful arms and allow him into his kingdom.
Bill (Uncle Bill) You are a Brother and will be sorely missed. Though our hearts ache we also Celebrate knowing you are in Paradise. You were one of a kind… God Bless my Brother.. Until we meet again….
Bill lived around the corner from me in Richmond for the last 25 years, and I was a frequent visitor. Definitely have a hole in my heart, particularly when I am near his old apartment. Whenever we parted, the last comments were always Peace Out.
Peace Out Bill!
Billy F (as I often called him) and I began our 40+ year friendship as housemates for several years in our early days after attending the same High School in our hometown of Staunton, and after I had moved to Richmond . We had met thru mutual friends and our classmates that also relocated in the late 70’s, and we reconnected several years ago after a lengthy period and we began amusing conversations on a regular basis by phone of our many shared interests… There were so many stories of our past recollections and the laughter that we shared from days past, and that continued every time we talked until the shocking news of his death came this spring…
He was loved by all over his entire “hardly ever a dull moment” life. My thoughts and sincere condolences go out to Bill’s family and to everyone that knew him for his fun loving personality. Bill is greatly missed and our friendship will never be forgotten…
I just wanted to post a thank you for all the love and support you have given to my dad over the years. At this time, we are holding a small private ceremony for family to say our goodbyes. As you all know, he loved fishing, so maybe y’all can plan a trip together!
I hope that you will all keep dad in your hearts and do something fun in his honor. Thanks again for all the heartfelt sympathy and love given to us from all!
Thank you Hannah, please let me know where to bring my fishin’ pole to honor your Dad…
Lisa and I were shocked to hear of your father’s passing. It has been years since we last spoke to Bill but every time we did speak in the past, regardless of the number of years that may have gone by, the conversation would carry on like we had just chatted the day before.
Your dad was a delightful man. Always funny and quick with a smile. I believe he could have a been a friend to just about anyone he met.
Just knowing that we will not have that opportunity to speak with him again is heartbreaking. Bill will be greatly missed.
