Gentle and kind are the first words I think of when I think of Pres. Faust. He was a gentle giant and will be sorely missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and to Pres. Hinckley and all those who were his close associates.


First, our deepest thoughts and prayers are with President Faust's family. What a tribute to a man to have his children comment on his love and respect for his sweet wife. The world would be a better place if more women were treated as such, felt important and given the opportunity to be good mothers because they felt loved and respected. What a great challenge to all the men who read this to commit today to follow this great example. Heavenly Father expects this from you and your sweethearts and children need this from you. Thank you to the Faust family for supporting President Faust in his service to the Lord and all people. We have all been greatly blessed.

Elder Faust touched my young family's heart with his heartfelt and spirit-filled General Conference Talks. I will always remember my young children speaking his name when asked who he was during our dinner time conversations. We won't forget the lessons taught during his most recent talk on Forgiveness. Farewell, Elder Faust and thanks for living what you believe and know to be true.

Heaven may be richer for having him there, but we are very rich for having known him, and for having heard and read his teachings.

Pres. Faust is a man of God, full of love and kindness. I got the honor of shaking his hand at church last month. He is an honest man. May prayers are with his family.

The world is better than it was because Pres. Faust has been here. He will be missed.

El Presidente Fauts fue un hombre con un gran espiritu sus mensajes cambiaron nuestras vidas y reconozco su gran don de enseanza em Mxico lo recordamos con especial cario y se que el seor lo esta esparando con los brazos abiertos para recibir a uno de sus hijos especiales que el seor bendiga a su hermosa familia y les de la seguridad y el consuelo de que en el otro lado del velo ahora estara al lado del seor.


May we all be as prepared as he was when it is our turn to go!
We love him and will miss him. I for one, will really miss listening to his Conference talks. Although it is kind of a sad day for us, what a glorious reunion he must be having!

Les mando mi mas sentido pesame por el fallecimiento del Elder Faust. Recuerdo bien aquella vez que viajo a Buenos Aires, y recibio las amalgamas de oro de las manos de hermanos carenciados; querian contribuir a la construccion del templo de Brasil pero no tenian con que. Entonces se les occurrio regalar lo unico de valor que tenian, que eran el oro de sus dientes. El Hermano Faust lloro de la emocion a recibirlas.

Montgomery Family

President Faust practiced what he preached.. We will miss his kind and gentle demeanor and his out stretched hand to all, regardless of stature. Now he is in the company of the Lord.


Pte Faust, un hombre de Dios


He was good right to the very center of his bones. I will never forget hearing him speak in person and jotting down what he said in the margins of my scriptures. Here was a man who "knew" and when he testified that he knew, I knew he knew! What a man!

Anderson Family

Who will replace the church's adopted grandfather? Who can measure the amount of love he generated? His good works, his example, his spirit, and his testimony were a mountain of strength for all who would take the time to listen and watch. A true giant has fallen in the forest, but will not be forgotten.

Clint Firth

I love you Pres. and Sister Faust and will miss you deeply. This world has lost a great leader.

Your devotion to your family, God, and His church is truly an eternal example for all of us to follow. I am so grateful to you and your guiding influence in my life. I hope to see you again.


President Faust, an angel unto mankind, now an angel of God. Via con Dios
