Fabian Prewett was a member of the original Order of the Phoenix, and one of Molly Weasley's brothers.
Role in the Books
At the celebratory party at Grimmauld Place for Ron and Hermione's appointment as Prefects, Alastor Moody shows Harry a photograph of the original Order of the Phoenix. Fabian Prewett is in that photo, with his brother Gideon, and Moody says it took five Death Eaters to kill them.
Gideon and Fabian were twins and Molly Weasley's brothers. It is in part because she has lost immediate family members to Death Eaters already that her greatest fear, as shown by the Boggart in that same chapter, is of her own family members dying. We suspect that her apparent fear that Harry will die is an indication that she feels Harry to be part of her family.
Apparently it is traditional to give a wizard a watch on their seventeenth birthday. When Harry turns 17, Mr. and Mrs. Weasley give Harry a watch. Mrs. Weasley apologizes profusely, saying it was Fabian's, and he hadn't always been terribly careful with his possessions, but Harry is very pleased by the gift, and tries to show it.
Harry is wearing this watch in the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
