Awarded actor passes away at age 90

Ron Faber, a stage performer who won an Obie Award and was most remembered for his tiny but significant part in the horror classic “The Exorcist,” died on March 26 at 90 from lung cancer.

After learning of his passing recently, friend and coworker David Patrick Kelly paid tribute to him on Facebook, calling him a “great artist and gentleman with a wonderful voice and laugh.”

For his performance in the off-Broadway production of “And They Put Handcuffs on Flowers,” Faber received an Obie Award in 1972. He was seen by director William Friedkin, who gave him the part of Chuck in the 1973 film “The Exorcist.”
