President Faust was a great leader and example professionally, spiritually, and in the community. I will miss his gentle heart and kind ways.

Presidente Faust, me sinto privilegiada por ter te conhecido pessoalmente e ter convivido com voc. Sempre te admirei muito por toda sua dedicao ao evangelho, por sua f e testemunho, por seu amor ao povo de Deus e por seu amor ao Brasil. Desejo muita fora minha querida irm Ruth. Que o amor do Senhor esteja com toda a famlia.

After reading the article, I realize that like all prophets, even Joseph Smith Jr. the Lord starts preparing these men at young ages to become Prophets and Apostles. President Faust was prepared to become a leader in the church.

Our family extends condolences at this time of an
enormous loss of a giant in the Church. He truly
was a valued and cherished leader-a true man of
God. I missed running into him at Bill's market
on the avenues. Gus Faust shared lots of stories
about him. We wish all the Faust family all the best.

We love President Faust and will miss him a lot.


I just wanted to say what a wonderful example of a great man and that he will be missed My thoughts and prayers are with the family.


He was very inspiring.


Thank you for sharing such a wonderful man with us all. His example of kindness and gentleness will live forever in our hearts. I wonder how different this world would be if we had more President Faust's in it. I am sure that our Savior has greeted him with an embrace and a "Well done thou good and faithful".


What a wonderful example and true follower of Jesus Christ. He truly devoted his life to the Savior. Our thoughts are with his family at this time--it's so hard to lose such a valiant man for a time.

Pres. Faust was such a great man. When he spoke you kne that he truly was a servant of God. I loved to hear him speak at Conference. He will be truly missed. Our prayers are with his family.

I was saddened to hear of Pres. Faust's passing this morning - Our family's prayers for comfort go out to his family and friends everwhere - what an amazing example of strength his life has been to all. God bless and comfort all who mourn his passing.

President Faust once told a story about him being a young boy sitting by the fireplace, watching his grandmother as she kept going out into the cold getting firewood for the family dinner? I think. He just sat and watched. As he told the story, tears streamed down his face, as he remarked on how he was so selfish that day, and he wanted so much to tell his grandmother he was sorry. I was so touched by that story, and have tried to live by that principle ever since. He was humble, meek, intelligent, and sincere. Also - he had red hair. =). I LOVE you, President Faust. May Heavenly Father's choicest blessing's be with your family at this time.

I met President Faust when he was in our stake to reorganize the stake presidency in June of 1978. He met with about 20 stake and ward leaders in the course of that assignment. When he entered the room, every man there rose to their feet. We all had the strongest feeling that we ought to be standing out of respect for the spirit we felt. He assured us that the Lord had already selected the new stake president. The responsibility he had was simply to identify that person. With a smile he then said, "I have come to know that this marvelous power (revelation) works...even through me." Only a few months later he was called to serve in the Quorum of the Twelve.

We will all miss his example of sweet tenderness and his humble but powerful and sure testimony of the Savior.


I will always treasure his love for womanhood. He personified a righteous father who emoted gentleness and testimony. His rock solid testimony always had a calming influence on us. Our prayers to all the family as this great man leaves you for but a little while.


what a comic!

a great loss
