The family of Ted Fashempour have planned his memorial service, to take place on Sunday, January 24 at 11am at the Big Bear Lake Performing Arts Center. It was in the early morning hours of January 2, just days after his 56th birthday, that Fashempour, husband to Paula, with whom he owned the Little Green House Florist, passed at Loma Linda University Medical Center. It was in 1992, when Fashempour was working in the flower wholesale business that he met his wife, prompting his move to Big Bear Lake in 1995. Once here, Fashempour became active in the Rotary Club and the Old Miners’ Association, coordinating children’s activities for several years; he also enjoyed fishing on Big Bear Lake, trips to the river with friends and family, and hosting his famous barbecues during the Big Bear Lake Antique Car Club’s Fun Run weekends. The Ted and Paula Fashempour family, which includes daughters Dawn and Jennifer Wade, son-in-law Marv Terry, granddaughter Marley and brother Lee Fashempour’s family, thanks the Big Bear Valley for support, prayers and love; the Little Green House family suggests donations to Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Kidney Foundation.
Update: Fashempour’s service had been postponed due to snow, and will now be held on Saturday, March 6 at 1pm and still at the PAC.
