He will be most remembered for his love of conversation and humor, his quick laughter, and the annual beautiful garden where he spent so much of his time. He took great pride in supplying his family and others with fruits and vegetables through the years. He loved to play golf and treasured the trophies he'd won in area senior championships. Mr. Faulk was well known as an animal lover and amazed his grandchildren and great grandchildren with his gentle ability to call up and feed the many squirrels and birds in his yard. www.millerfuneralhomeoxford.com Miller Funeral Home & Crematory Oxford, AL (256) 831-4611 A Brown Service Authorized Funeral Home.
