Getting your Trinity Audio player ready ...

Charles “Chuck” Faber, of Idaho Falls, ID passed away unexpectedly on Monday, May 6th 2024 at the age of 59. He is survived by his family in Idaho; mother, Jane Faber (nee Schneider), brother, David (and wife Brenda) Faber and daughters, Raegan and Piper Faber all of Idaho Falls; and his family in Florida; son Ryan (and wife Shannon) Depergola and granddaughter Paytin. He is preceded in death by his father, Charles “Chuck” Faber of Wisconsin.

Chuck grew up in Wisconsin and Minnesota and often shared his childhood memories of Moose Lake. He attended college at University of Wisconsin-Madison and later at Oklahoma State University. Never one to settle, he also spent time living in Florida, Arkansas, California, Nevada and New Zealand.

Chuck made a lasting impact on everyone he met, with his charismatic personality and his over the top style. You could always find him wearing Ralph Lauren Polo with his white socks and topsiders, he loved showing off outrageous Philipp Plein jackets and he never missed a good Dillard’s sale. Image was everything to Chuck.

With Chuck, business always came first. He loved a challenge and was always trying to achieve the next goal, never willing to settle for second best. From his early years working in sales at IBM and Russ Berry, to escaping a corporate world to work in bars and restaurants, and for the last 23 years as a business owner he always wanted to be the best in his field.

In his personal life too, Chuck wanted the best. The best house, the best car; he wanted to stand out and he absolutely achieved that. He always wanted the best for his friends and family and always tried to help them the best way he knew how.

Chuck had a lust for life and often talked about outliving everyone, getting robotic replacement parts if his body started failing. He enjoyed boating and skiing and had an unusual amount of strength. He was always happy around water and loved being out on the ocean in the sun.

Chuck will be deeply missed by his family and friends. Rest in Peace Chuck, Chuckster, Chuckles, Chuck-e-Cheese. Until we meet again.
