“I was deeply saddened today to learn of the passing of Wilbur Faiss. Mr. Faiss had a tireless commitment to the state and its people, but most importantly, he devoted his life to his wife and children. Married 79 years to his late wife Theresa, the couple was honored by the Worldwide Marriage Encounter as the Longest-Married Couple in the United States in 2012.
