Robert Fahey Obituary
Robert Bruce Fahey

Passed away peacefully on August 17, 2014. Robert was a proud native San Franciscan, and was a lifelong Forty Niner and Giants fan. He presided over the activities at Fahey's, the bar that he owned for over 40 years. He would open early to provide local retirees a place to have coffee and read the paper, and hosted weekly viewings of Monday Night Football. There were always hotdogs in the steamer for his customers.
Known as Snooky to his friends, he was quite the ladies' man, and was an excellent dancer. Pursued by women and admired by men, he loved spending time with his friends. He especially enjoyed his weekly outings with Bob, Mary and Gordon, and always looked forward to the Tuesday Pedro Club at the Eagle in Brisbane.
His is preceded in death by his parents Michael and Hansine, his brother Ronald, his wife Donna Rae and his daughter Christine.
He leaves behind his daughter Michele Burton, his granddaughter Brianna Sylvers, grandson Anthony Pennes and Anthony's girlfriend Celia, his great granddaughter Kareya Sylvers, and Arlene Day, his "Little One" who was his constant companion for his last 10 years. He will be missed by his many cousins, nieces and nephews, and by the Sargis family, who called him Papa Snook.
The family wants to thank Mike Murphy of the Giants and his wife Carol for their friendship and support to Robert.
Friends may visit Duggan's Serra Mortuary on Thursday, 8/21 from 4:00PM. The Memorial Service will begin at 7:00PM. The Funeral Service will be Friday 8/22 at 10:00AM at Duggan's, followed by burial at Olivet Memorial Park 1601 Hillside Blvd. Colma.
