Clement ‘Jim’ Faber


Clement “Jim” Faber, born Feb. 6, 1932, died April 16, 2017, after an illness.

Jim was known for his warm-hearted nature and jovial spirit. He spent many days at the San Mateo Elks Lodge, where he loved to play Pinochle and participate in community service projects.

Jim grew up in San Francisco, where he attended Galileo High School. Jim served in the U.S. Navy as a first class petty officer. After he came home from a four-year tour of duty in Korea, he worked for Matson on the San Francisco waterfront. He later worked at the Port of Redwood City and ended his career as the manager of the Port of Richmond.

Jim loved his family. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Marian Faber; his son Norman Faber; grandson James Aliamus; and many nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews, great-grandnieces and great-grandnephews.

The Fabers’ beloved daughter, Sally Faber Aliamus, predeceased Jim. He always held her memory close to his heart.

A memorial service will be 11 a.m. Saturday, April 29, at the Congregational Church of San Mateo, at 225 Tilton Ave., San Mateo. A reception will be held at the church after the service.
