Services were held at St. Mary's Catholic Church Wednesday morning for Robert A. Fahey, who died Sunday night at Allen Memorial Hospital. The Rev. J.A. Kress officiated. Burial was in St. Mary's cemetery.
Bob Fahey was a member of a family long identified with the history of this community. He was born on a farm in Franklin Co. May 7, 1894, to Thomas P. and Mary Halloran Fahey. He grew up there and attended school and when his parents moved to Ackley in 1911, he went to work for his brother-in-law in George, where he stayed until he entered service in World War I. Following the Armistice he played with orchestras in central Iowa for several years, and after his mother's death in 1926 he returned to Ackley to be with his father.
On July 28, 1937 he and Ann O'Neill of Ackley were married. A history of the church written at the time of the Centennial here revealed that they were the only couple married there who each had grandparents who were members of the original St. Mary's congregation. They have since made their home here, and became the parents of two sons.
Mr. Fahey was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church and Ellsworth-Keninger Post of the American Legion.
Surviving are his wife and sons, A-3c Thomas P. Fahey of Loring AFB, Maine, and Joseph Fahey, at home, four sisters, Mrs. Ligouri Martin, Tiff City, Mo., Mrs. Mae (James) Parden, Iowa City, Mrs. Irene (Frank) Keninger, Ackley, Mrs. Laura Nangle, Mason City, and a brother, Floyd, Independence.
