IBEW 1245 regrets to announce the passing of retired member Art Fahrner. Brother Fahrner was a longtime union advocate and served as the president of the IBEW 1245 North Bay Retirees Club for many years.
His wife Carolyn describes him as “a loving husband, father, papa, brother, uncle. A lineman for PG&E for 46+ years, a job he loved and excelled at. His stories will live on forever and we will remember them all as we drive by a sub-station or particular power pole. His children, Christine. Art Jr, Lorne, Nivole and Bart were his pride and joy. He would brag on the constantly to anyone who would listen. When I came into his life I added Tiffiney and Shawn to his pack and he considered them just as much his as the rest of them. We shared 30 years together. I miss you and will always love you.”
