Larry Joe Faulkner, the most gentle of men, passed away on Saturday, March 5th at the age of 83. Larry was the son of Irvin and Irene Faulkner of Proctorville, who predeceased him. His love of his parents was unwavering and a frequent conversation. Larry was also predeceased by his brothers, Arlen (Helen) Faulkner and Gordon Faulkner, and his great niece, Megan Thacker. Surviving are his nieces Susie (Doug) Eavenson who managed his care for more than 30 years, and Shawn Jones, great nieces Amy (Mark) Faulkner Brayfield, Whitney (Marcie) Faulkner, Ruti (Mason) Turner, Tessa (Justin) Larson, a great nephew Jason (Brett) Eavenson and sister-in-law, Marilyn Faulkner. Larry was a lifelong member of the Rome Church of Christ. We are incredibly grateful to his amazing caregivers that made his life so special over the years, including Theresa, Linda, Jodi, Sherry, and Mary. The family would like to thank Dr. Pinson’s office and Hospice of Huntington for their guidance during this difficult time. Family and friends will gather for his service at the Rome Cemetery Mausoleum on Saturday, March 12th at 11:00 am. Beard Mortuary is in charge of arrangements. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Developmental Therapy Center or Hospice, both of Huntington, would be appreciated in Larry’s memory.
