I served on the U.S.S Ingraham (DD-694)
(1964-1966) when Captain was was my commanding officer.
I felt privileged to have served under his command and he was well respected by the Officers and crew.
My sympathies to the Faas family.
I am a member of the staff at Stoneridge and had the pleasure of working for Mr. and Mrs. Faas for two years. Each Thursday I would go to their apartment. Mrs. Faas would leave for chorus and I had an hour to talk with Mr. Faas. He spoke of his naval career, his famous family in California (even let me borrow the Denzel movie he was so proud!), his beautiful wife, and very close knit family. He was always quick to point out the newest family reunion photo framed and displayed proudly on the wall. Mr. Faas was kind, intelligent, funny. I once told Mrs. Faas that I had a crush on her husband, joking of course!, she laughed and told him. He said "Well then, shove off" We all laughed. I wish I could have said goodbye properly to a man I admired, thought so highly of, and will never forget. He was the
epitome of a man. Rest in peace Mr. Faas. I'll miss the smell of your pipe
tobacco in the hallway.
