Bob Fader was born to Clayton and Juanita Fader. He pursued his career at Fader Equipment with integrity, and his hobbies with enthusiasm. He loved with a full heart. He led life with a complete understanding of what it means and how to behave as a good and decent human. Bob is survived by his wife of 64 years, Ruth; their son, Reid; and daughter, Regan (Faith) Also surviving are his sister, Dorothy Olson, sister-in-law, Ann Gilbert, and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by their son Ryan, and daughter-in-law, Debra. Bob was recently diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. Bob worked hard, retired early, enjoyed golf and woodworking, and loved his family. The family wants to thank Angela Burnham, the staff at Rose Arbor, and especially his niece, Kate Gilbert, for her selflessness in helping with his care. Pursuant to his wishes, no services will be held. If you choose, please direct memorials to Hospice of Southwest Michigan or an animal rescue organization of your choice.
