Obituary for Hugh Earl Faison aka H. Earl Faison

On October 20, 2017, Hugh Earl Faison was called home to see the Lord.

Hugh or Earl, as he was affectionately known, was born on September 4, 1925, in Englewood, NJ, to the late Henry J. and Ludie J. Thompson Faison, who shortly after his birth, relocated to Bridgeport, CT, where they laid roots. Earl married Eunice Marie Anthony on May 1, 1954, and from that union came their son, Stuart Faison.

Earl worked for and retired from Associated Transport and Sikorsky Aircraft. An entrepreneur at heart, he founded Ebony Real Estate. Earl was the Past President of the Bridgeport Chapter of the Union of Black Episcopalians. He is a long-time parishioner at St. John’s Episcopal Church where he was the first African American to join this Parish. He served as a greeter and an usher. He was a past treasurer of the Doric Lodge, and a member of the Teamsters Local 191 Retirees Chapter. He enjoyed talking, as he would say, “he got the gift of gab” from his mother.

Earl is survived by his brother James Faison of Louisville, KY, sister in law Beverly Anthony, special nieces, Loretta Thomas and Chekesha Williams of Bridgeport and a goddaughter Laura Woolfolk Northern of Virginia and a host of nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends. Earl was predeceased by his wife Eunice and only son Stuart, his brothers Leroy and Clarence Faison.

In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to Alzheimer's Association in the name of Hugh Earl Faison.
