Fabert planned to attend Merrimack College in the fall, according to his football coach Robert Diloreto.

One of his football teammates, Jaylen Murphy, said Fabert was someone you could rely on.

“He was a good guy. He was like very invested in the church. He loved football. He loved playing and he loved being with his teammates. You could count on him. I know that when I go to the university, I know I will be thinking of him all the time. Every game will be for him. I will give my all for him.”
