Herman Fabiani

March 4, 1926 — May 4, 2023


Herman (Armondo) Fabiani, 97, of Inverness, FL, passed away on May 4, 2023. He was born in Melrose Park, IL on March 4, 1926, to the late Dominic and Maria (nee Pagliaroni) Fabiani.

Mr. Fabiani was a veteran of the US Army during World War II.  He served as a Rifleman-Scout with the 63rd Infantry Division. He was engaged in three major battles in the European Theater (Ardence, Central Europe, Rhineland).  He participated in setting up several Fox Company, 253rd Regiment Army Mini Reunions for 40 years.  He was decorated with the Bronze Star Medal of Valor and was promoted to Corporal in 2021 by the VFW, Inverness Post. 

In 1984, after 43 years of service as manufacturing manager, Herman retired from Borg Warner Corporation in Frankfort, IL. At age 58, he, with other retired Borg Warner executives, formed a corporation, JAINPRO (Japanese Auto Industrial Products).  He also formed a corporation of his own, FABCO.  He was civic minded as President and Board Member of the Frankfort, IL Chamber of Commerce.

Herman had numerous hobbies.  He enjoyed gardening in his earlier years and spent many hours in his yard.  He loved to fish with his friends and family, no matter which state he was in.  Herman loved to make themed clocks for those who have impacted his life.  Most of all, Herman enjoyed hosting parties with his wife Karen.  He absolutely loved entertaining and putting smiles on the faces of those he loved.  He will truly be missed by many.
