Mr. Fass became a Certified Public Accountant at the age of 21 and owned a private practice in Parsippany until he merged his practice in 2009, which then became known as Goodman, O’Malley, Rosamilia, Voorman & Fass LLC in Cedar Knolls.

Actively engaged in his business and religious communities, he gave many years of service to Knights of Pythias, Rotary Club of Parsippany, Parsippany Chamber of Commerce, New Jersey Society of CPAs, Lake Hiawatha Jewish Center, Israel Bonds, Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ, and Hebrew Academy of Morris County (now Gottesman RTW Academy).

An avid golfer and boating enthusiast, he spent much time at the Knoll Golf Club, The Club at Boca Pointe, Lake Hopatcong, and Garden State Yacht Club.

Predeceased by his wife of 46 years, Barbara (Peres), in 2008, he is survived by three daughters, Maxine (Daniel) Berg of Wilton, Conn., Melanie (Steven) Glass of West Orange, and Deborah (Brad) Jacobs of Chappaqua, N.Y.; two brothers, Stanley of Deerfield Beach, Fla., and Joe of Bridgewater; and nine grandchildren.
