President Faust was a very sweet & kind person. I loved to listen to him at General Conference & to read his inspiring words in the Ensign. He was an example we all need to follow. When he would enter a room the spirit was so strong. His love & tenderness that he had for his sweet wife was really inspiring. Our love & prayers go out to his sweet wife & family & friends.


We in Africa West Area loved him so much.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and to the members of the Church. We will miss his kind words at General Conference, but will always remember them in our hearts. He was truly a great man.

President Faust was such a kindly grandfatherly man. My family will sorely miss him. His talk on Forgiveness this past conference was one my favorite talks ever given in General Conference.

President Faust's life was a wonderful example for everyone. He was exceptional in every aspect of his life especially in relationship to his family. He is a hero to the members of the Church here in Canada. We love you Aunt Ruth.


I remember him coming to a regional conference when I was 13 at Jerome High School. Sweet manand heard him and President Hunter told Lawyer jokes. A sweet reunion up there now. I wonder who his replacement will be once funeral is over. His great work of course continues on the other side of the veil and the caravan will move on over here.


What a Wonderful Man. He will be missed!

I once met President Faust on the corner of South Temple and State Street. At the time I had a goatee. I said Hello to him and he said hello back. Then he grabbed my chin and asked me when I was going to shave!!! We have truly lost a great leader and disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. He will be truly missed. Our prayers are with his beloved wife and family at at this time.

He was a great man and provided great insight, wisdom, and understanding regarding gospel principles. He wisdom and excitement for the gospel will be missed.


Pres Faust lives near where I work - he stopped in to ask what we do and those that were here at that time were warmed by his presence. We have missed seeing him take his walks, but I am sure his mobility has been restored.

All of us in Snowflake, Arizona who knew Pres. Faust, loved him and
will miss his inspirational talks. Our condolences to his family. We fondly
remember his visit to Snowflake for a monument dedication for our town
when I was Mayor.

Our hearts go out to the Faust family at this time. What a blessing it was for us to be able to feast upon the beautiful words of wisdom that President Faust always had to offer. He was such a loving teacher to us all and we are grateful to have had him as a leader of the church and as a true apostle of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I remember brother Faust with much love and admiration. I worked at Holy Cross Hospital in the rehab ward years ago and saw his love for a friend from his military service who was not a member of the church. Brother Faust came every week like clockwork to visit this friend who had had a stroke to encourage and support him. I learned that love is unconditional for all men. I send my love to all of the Faust family members. We love Brother Faust.
