YORK Theodore J. Fabie, 82, surrounded by family at home, entered eternity on April 1, 2014. Born to Joseph T. and Constance (Bridgman) Fabie on February 17, 1932, in Pittsburgh, he graduated from York Catholic H.S. in 1950, attended St. Charles Seminary in Catonsville and Philadelphia before joining the U.S. Air Force and serving at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, Miss., where he met and married his beloved bride, Helen E. Moniot, on May 28, 1960. After moving to York, they were blessed with nine children, Dorothy, Mary Helen, Maureen, James, Constance, Anne, Jessica, Renee, and Benjamin, as well as 22 grandchildren. A loving and faithful provider, Ted taught English at West York H.S., William Penn H.S., and York Catholic H.S., after which he founded and operated Ted Fabie Associates Painting until he retired. He was a vital and active member of Gideons International, Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship, and York First Assembly of God Church, where he taught Sunday School, played in the orchestra, was a Royal Rangers Commander, and served in the Men's and Prison Ministries.
