Dave Fairbank is our school custodian. He has worked at STM since 2004. His children Laurel and Heather graduated from STM. His grandchildren currently attend STM. Ted is in first grade, and David is in pre-school.
Dave owns and operates The Fairbank Hands-On Farm. A field trip to the farm has been an annual tradition for our first grade students for a long time. Our second grade students work with Dave to feed pigs and hatch chickens. He brings them back later to visit.
Dave was a founding member of STM back in 1963 and, in fact, Dave built the first Altar when the parish was first formed and Sunday Masses were celebrated at the old Lynnwood Junior High.
Every once in a while, Dave treats the staff to some of his wonderful cooking!
