HAMILTON –Curtis Dean Faber, 42, of Hamilton passed away Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012, from heart and diabetes complications.

Curtis was born May 19, 1970, at St. Louis Park Hospital in St. Louis Park, Minn., to Dean Thomas Faber and Betty Lou (Miller) Faber. The family moved to Murdo, S.D., in 1973 where Curtis went to all 12 grades of school, graduating in 1989. He was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 8 and attended many diabetes camps, where he made many friends. In school, Curt participated in basketball and singing with the Swing Choir.

After graduation, he worked at various jobs including being an aide at the nursing home in White River, S.D., and meat cutter in Pierre, S.D. Curt enjoyed playing pool and darts, and visiting with his friends.

In 1998, he moved to Washington state and married Deb Weiser in 1999. While in Washington, Curt worked for a heating and cooling company and also for an auto parts store. They moved from Washington to Montana, where Curt continued to cut meat for various grocery stores in Hamilton. He kept in touch with all his friends in South Dakota and spent some of his summers in Murdo to see everyone. He continued to work until his diabetes interfered with his health and he was unable to continue his job duties safely.

While in Hamilton, Curt enjoyed being outside and going to the mountains. He liked horses and all animals and was always willing to help friends care for their animals while they were gone.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Betty Lou; close friend, Jenny; both sets of grandparents; both his mother’s brothers and his father’s sister. Curt is survived by his father and stepmother, Dean T. and Deborah Faber of Murdo, S.D.; two stepbrothers, Adin Hall and wife Toris, and Orrin Hall, all of Washington; three stepsisters, Moriah DeSantis and husband Brett of Colorado, and Rachel and Ashley Hall, all of South Dakota; his ex-wife, Deb Weiser of Hamilton; special friends, Casey, Dwayne, Jeannette, Jerry, Terri, Kari, Cory and Darrin; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and other friends in South Dakota and Montana.
