1956

-

2023

Robert Fane, 67, of Griffith, Indiana, passed away of natural causes while on a trip on November 11, 2023. Born to Edna and John Fane, Bob grew up in Schererville and graduated from Purdue University Calumet. He was an Electrical Technician for the Chicago Tribune from 1984 until he retired in 2018.

Bob was an avid drummer and was frequently in rock bands. He loved music – whether listening to records, watching live shows, or performing himself.

Although mostly reserved, he had a wicked sense of humor and a booming laugh. He was our gentle giant.

Bob is survived by former wife, Dawn Paris; their children, Brandon (Victoria) Fane and Krysten (David Marshall) Fane; grandchildren, Anderson Fane and Elliott Fane Marshall; and siblings: Bruce (Glenna) Fane, Jan Fane, and Karen Hughes.

A visitation will be held for Robert on Saturday, November 18, 2-6 p.m. Funeral services will be held Sunday, November 19, 2023 at 10 A.M. All services will be held at Calumet Park Funeral Chapel, 7535 Taft Street, Merrillville, IN 46410. Lunch will follow the services.

My condolences to the family. Bob was a good man and a good friend.
We had a good time back in the day going on double dates, going to concerts, going to the Y & W Drive Inn and partying. Bob and Dawn and Mike and I used to have great times together. Time passed and we lost touch over the years but we can still think back on the fun memories we had. RIP Bob. Rock on!
