FALLER, Robert O.
FALLER - Robert O. Bold. Bodacious. Beloved. Bob. 1932 - 2018 Heaven's gates opened wide for our loving friend, husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather this past Tuesday. Born February 16, 1932 in Buffalo, NY, Bob served in the United States Army before becoming a true legend in the ad agency industry. He created and produced campaigns for some of America's most prestigious brands, always with a "whatever it takes" approach to serving his clients' needs. He was the ultimate pitchman and mentor, instilling a sense of trust and confidence with whomever he came in contact. Bob was the supreme optimist, seeing the positive in all situations and people. His altruism was apparent even in simple interactions, where he always made a point to direct the conversation to be about you and why you were so special. He had the uncanny ability to light the fire within, encouraging others to always make more out of what they already were. While Bob's accomplishments in professional and philanthropic pursuits earned him many rewards and honors, his greatest sense of pride was derived from the loving and caring family that surrounded him. He is survived by his amazing wife and bride of 60 years, Janet Faller (nee Lemoncello), whom he married in Kenmore, NY, as well as his three children Cynthia Faller Fabrizzi (Vincent Fabrizzi), Lisa Faller (Alan Deutsch), and Robert Faller (Karen Faller). He will also be deeply missed by his six grandchildren, VJ Fabrizzi (Ninou Fabrizzi), Alina Fabrizzi Linthicum (Alex Linthicum), Alexandra Faller, Sarah Faller Williams (Ryan Williams), Carly Faller and Jenna Faller, as well as one great-grandchild Penelope Linthicum. A viewing will take place on Thursday, February 15, 2018 from 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m., at Sylvan Abbey Funeral Home, 2853 Sunset Point Road, Clearwater, FL 33759.
