General Faver was born in Sweetwater, TX (southeast of Lubbock) in 1916. He joined the US Army Air Corps in March 1941 and served in a variety of posts around the US and the world, mostly as an instructor. During the Vietnam War, Faver assumed command of the 3500th Pilot Training Wing at Reese Air Force Base in Lubbock. He was promoted to Brigadier General in 1966, and was transferred to US Air Force Headquarters. Eventually promoted to Major General, Faver retired from the Air Force in 1973 and returned to Lubbock, where he was a fixture in the community and a great friend to many.
Services are pending with Resthaven Funeral Home in Lubbock.
