Mark Anthony Fabian

Mark Anthony Fabian of Carbondale died unexpectedly on Saturday, May 24, 2003, at his home. He was 50.

He was born April 24, 1953, in Uniontown, Pa., to Mary Kremposky and John Fabian.

He spent his childhood in West Leisenring, Pa., and graduated from Laurel Highlands High School in Uniontown in 1971. He earned an A.A.S. degree in electrical engineering from Pennsylvania State University in 1973.

Mr. Fabian married Katrine Albertina Heckel on Dec. 11, 1976, in West Leisenring.

Mr. Fabian worked for coal mines in Ohio, taught electrical maintenance in mines in Wyoming, and was an associate professor of mining for Colorado Mountain College.

For the past two years he worked as the lead engineer for The Little Nell hotel in Aspen.

His colleagues said he was well-liked and respected, never lost his temper and was a good man to work for.

Mr. Fabian loved all sports, but will be especially missed by his fellow Steelers’ fans at Premich’s. He loved to laugh, tell stories and was very generous.

Mr. Fabian is survived by his wife, Katrine “Kathy” Fabian of Carbondale; by sons Seth Fabian and Jake Fabian of Carbondale; by daughters Lisa Fabian of Hollister, Calif., and Lydia Fabian of Carbondale; and by brothers and sisters-in-law Richard and Erma Fabian of West Leisenring and Gerald and Rosalie Fabian of Racine, Wisc.

A funeral service was held Friday, May 30, at St. Mary of the Crown Catholic Church in Carbondale, with the Revs. Tom Bradtke and Tom McCormick officiating.

Memorial contributions may be made for Mr. Fabian’s children’s education to the Fabian College Benefit Fund at Wells Fargo Bank, 1201 Highway 133, Carbondale, CO 81623.
