Clarence Eugene Fauber

Avon Park - Clarence Eugene Fauber, 78, of Avon Park, died on January 7th, 2021. He was born on June 23rd, 1942 in East Chicago, Indiana. Clarence grew up in Hammond, Indiana, and as a child overcame polio which helped contribute to his resilient attitude. He received his BS and MBA from Indiana University and also served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1963 to 1966. His work career started with AT&T long lines in Chicago until moving to Mansfield, Ohio to be Operations Manager at United Telephone. From 1975-1987 he was the President and Owner of Perfection Manufacturing Corp. He then went on to be the General Manager of the Mansfield Division of OmniSource Corp. During his tenure there, he became a Broker of scrap metal and continued in that position until retirement in 2013. Many of his clients and associates were considered his friends. Clarence was generous with his time and resources and believed in the importance of volunteerism and being civic-minded. He was a Paul Harris Rotarian, President of the Richland County Purchasing Club, sat on the Mansfield Zoning Board of Appeals, and was Chairman of the Richland Economic Development Corp. from 1995-1997. He also volunteered in many capacities and was creative in event organization and civic fundraising campaigns. He was Senior Warden of the Vestry at Grace Episcopal Church and was an involved parishioner.

Clarence was an avid golfer and tennis player and enjoyed being a member of the Westbrook Country Club and the Woodland Club. Over the years he made time to coach many different youth sports teams. Clarence had a keen intellect and performed at a high-level playing bridge and completing crossword puzzles. More than anything, Clarence cherished his friends and loved being supportive. Many will remember his generous spirit, his mischievous grin, and the twinkle in his baby blues. He was preceded in death by parents Viola and Eugene Fauber, and sister Jean Plusch. He is survived by his wife of 55 years Sharon, daughters Kimberly and Crystal of Columbus, OH, granddaughter Chloe of NYC, son-in-law John Loechler of Columbus, and brother Martin of Canton, OH. Services will be Tuesday January 12, 2021 at 12:30 pm at Sarasota Veteran's National Cemetery.

Clarence and i were bonded in 1970 when we realized we were raised in the same area in Indiana and Illinois. We also went to the same high school. I will miss him terribly and pray for peace and love for Sharon and her family.

What a fun, intelligent man! Loved being part of a neighborhood group of friends and neighbors. He will be remembered by many of us as we gather to share stories. Sorry for your loss, Sharon and girls. Thinking of you with our prayers.

Wonderful memories remain of beautiful and fun times our families shared. A smile crosses my face as thoughts of Skaneatles, NY, the weddings of my daughters in Pittsburgh and Chicago - times at Lake Erie and so much more. Clarence always had my back as a loyal friend and helped me pick up pieces of my life during tragic times. A best forever friend!

I and my family were at Sharon and Clarence's wedding fifty-five years ago in Tustin, California, Sharon's home town. They were both so happy and the ceremony was beautifully done with my Aunt Mary and Uncle Paul (Sharon's parents) just beaming with pride. Unfortunately, Clarence swept up his beautiful bride and relocated to Ohio far away from my hometown of San Diego, CA, so I wasn't able share much of their life together. What I do remember about Clarence was that he was very engaging and kind, and actively demonstrated his love for Sharon. Sharon - Becky and I cannot in anyway imagine the depth of your loss, but wish to extend our upmost sympathy to you and the girls. May God provide you and the family comfort during this time of loss, but also refresh anew those memories and experiences that make life special.

Love Doug and Becky Skiff
