Julius Fabian

January 26, 2022

Julius Fabian, 87, passed away peacefully at his Kill Devil Hills, NC residence January 26, 2022. He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 50 years- Livia; his beloved parents, Sandor and Julianna Fabian; and his sister, Julia Magori.

Julius’ life was complex and challenging. After fighting in the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, he narrowly escaped persecution and ended up in an Austrian Refugee camp. It was there he met and fell in love with his future wife, Livia. The two were forced to separate and live in different countries. Two years later, they managed to reunite and marry in Montreal, Canada.

Eventually, the couple settled in Richmond, VA where they raised their family and prospered. Julius worked hard and became a successful small business owner. He discovered the Outer Banks in the 1960’s and retired here in 2009. Here, Julius became a popular “local”- windsurfing, playing his accordion at numerous beach venues; swimming and walking the beach, and living for his cherished grandchildren. Over the years, Julius also spent many, many hours with his “fellowship” who became family.

Julius is survived by his two devoted daughters, Teresa Fabian of Kill Devil Hills, and Victoria Galiffa (Chris) of Richmond; his five grandchildren, Gianna (Mickey), Frankie, Christopher, Maya, and Tessa; his grand-niece and nephew, Rita and Gabor; as well as his nephew Stephen Spaller and his sister-in-law Valeria Spaller of Hungary; The youngest member of his family his great-granddaughter, Livia Albornoz of Falls Church, VA was the light of his eyes. He left behind a host of many relatives and extended family members in Hungary and many loyal friends.
