Albert Monroe Faught Obituary
ODESSA Albert Monroe Faught, age 84, of Odessa, passed from this life on Thursday, January 24, 2013 at Sienna Care Center in Odessa after a long illness. He was born in El Dorado, Texas on August 15, 1928 to John and Willamena "Minnie" (Baethge) Faught, but grew up in Lampasas and graduated from Lampasas High School. Albert was a US Army Veteran and worked at Midland International Airport as a janitor.
Albert was nicknamed "Jackrabbit" because he was always going. He worked, worked and worked some more. He would work – come home – eat – sleep – and get up to work again. He was fascinated by history and math and loved trigonometry. He was a witty, likeable person who enjoyed country dancing and reading. An outdoorsman, Albert also enjoyed gardening and deer hunting.
