President Faust has always been a gentle, calming, and sometimes humorous man and great example to the world. What an amazing man to have followed. We love him and his family.

President Faust was a wonderful example of a man whose focus on the Gospel of Jesus Christ was a guiding light to the Church. I pray that his family and those who loved him can take comfort in his nearly perfect example, his unshakable testimony, and the inspiration he was to all of us. Thank you for sharing him.


The world has lost a great man. May his soul rest in perfect peace. Even though he has departed from this life, his words will always live on. Peace.

One day our family was visiting Salt Lake City and encountered President Faust as he came out of building. He immediately walked over to my sons, gave them the most loving greeting and talked to each one briefly. He is a man who practiced what he preached. We are going to miss him.

My daughter who was a teenager at the time and I met President Faust. We were at a restaurant and he just looked at her and spoke to her like he could see her beautiful spirit. What a beautiful thing to do to see that in others.

A great man and even greater missionary.

President Faust has been a great leader and uplifter, helping put this crazy world in correct perspective. We enjoyed so much having him conduct a regional conference in Birmingham AL as a member of the 1st Presidency.

Presidente Faust foi e um homem expetacular!
Seu amor e sua compreeso eram visiveis... Pude sentir o Espirito em suas mensagens que muitas e muitas vezes parecia terem sido escritas diretamente pra mim, como se ele soubesse o que eu estava precisando "escutar".. E suas palavras no eram lidas por mim, mas escutadas! Obrigada por seu amor por mim... E por minha famlia!!
Eu o amo!
Sentirei sua falta.

Hombre de gran ejemplo y humildad, nos impacto su discurso sobre el Perdon relacionado con los AMISH, toda su vida es un ejemplo del modelo a seguir que nos dicto el Seor en 3 Nefi 27:27, nos impacto esta noticia de este da pero con el conocimiento que nos da el Padre en sus escrituras, confiamos en la solemne maana de Resurrecin, y como lo dijo Job en nuestra carne veremos a Dios.

Oramos por la Hermana Ruth.

Ken & Nola Neeley

Will surely miss his voice.

You came to Goshen Scout Camp to be with your grandson, you shared your special witness of the Savior with all, you showed your gift of discernment for the special needs of the individual Scouts as we walk along the lake after dinner, you praised our "Dutch Oven Chicken Dinner" and wrote about it in your journal that 'it was the best you had had since your father cooked it for you', and you talked with me in the car on the way home and I knew that I was speaking with an Apostle of the Lord.
