Arthur Terman Faircloth

Arthur Terman "Art" Faircloth, 88, of Fredericksburg passed away Thursday, April 1,
2010, at Mary Washington Hospital Emergency Center.

Art enjoyed many sports including golf, which he played mostly in Fairfax and
Fredericksburg, and bird hunting, since he wouldn't shoot an animal with four legs,
and football. He attended and played football for
Anacostia High School (1940) in
Washington, D.C., where he earned a full athletic scholarship to North Carolina State
University. After college, Art went on to play football for the New York Giants during
the 1947 season in the triple-threat position.

Art worked for NBC Television in Washington, D.C., for 25 years, retiring in the late
1970s. He loved life and lived it to the fullest.

He is survived by a daughter, Anne Faircloth of Spotsylvania County; a son, Arthur
M. Faircloth and his wife, Sharon, of Warrenton; a granddaughter, Laura M.
Faircloth-Vandegrift of South Carolina, and a great- grandson, Garrett B. Vandegrift
of South Carolina.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Bettie M. Faircloth.

In lieu of flowers, Art's family requests that expressions of sympathy take the form of
donations to Spotsylvania Volunteer Rescue Squad, Box 101, Spotsylvania, Va.
