Dear Connie, Cheryl and family, I always enjoyed running into Bill in the hall of our condo complex. He was always so kind, warm and friendly, "Hey, how are you?" always sounding so pleased to see me and asking how I was or when my mother would stop by for a visit, he would ask how she has been. Always taking an interested in our well being. Even when using a walker, he wouldn't let me hold the door open for him to our mailboxes in the lobby, or to exit our building. He'd always say, "I got it..." and would let me go ahead of him, propping the door open with his walker. Always determined and never letting anything stop him. He was a true gentleman, right down to pulling the car around to the end of the sidewalk to pick up Connie before heading out for the afternoon. His kind and positive spirit will be missed. Thinking of you with deepest sympathy, Erica M. Westwood

Please accept my condolences for the passing of William. There is hope though, as the Almighty has arranged for the resurrection in the future. He promises, "... There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." (Acts 24:15) I hope you find these few words comforting and provide motivation to prepare for the new world of God's making. (John 17:3)

I had the pleasure of getting to know Bill in my career as former prosecutor, and then defense lawyer when he worked as a sheriff in the court system. As our friendship grew, I learned of the many hats he has worn in a variety of roles, with the common theme of giving back to the community. Whether it be for the Town of Glastonbury or the State of Connecticut, he treated all with the same degree of respect, kindness and care. He was truly a man who exemplified doing the right thing and doing a good thing, every day of his life.

Sending condolences to Mr. Bill Faber's family. Bill was one of the nicest guys I've ever met, and always friendly to a younger newcomer in town, which I was in the "old days." Rest in Peace, Bill. --David Dearborn, former editor of Glastonbury Citizen
