Faurot, Jon - Boulder  
Jon Leonard Faurot died unexpectedly on May 15, 2015 at his home atop Flagstaff Mountain in Boulder, CO. He was born Nov. 30, 1946 in Lima, Ohio to parents Leonard and Gini (Pifer) Faurot. He grew up in Lima, graduated from The Ohio State University, and then received his Master's in Business Administration at Bowling Green University. He moved to Colorado to further his education and began doing construction work on the side. His skills in construction and business led to the founding of Faurot Construction, which he successfully ran for over 25 years. He loved spending time in the home he built. The mountain scenery surrounding his home in Boulder served as his playground with regular dirt biking, hiking, cycling and animal watching. He was an advocate and supporter of several causes and organizations including the Alzheimer's Association, where he became a support group leader after lovingly and patiently helping his mother thrive despite the obstacles of the disease. He gained the sure-fitting nickname "The Most Interesting Man" due to his likeness to the actor in the popular Dos Equis commercials, his adventurous lifestyle and his adoring personality. He loved skiing with friends and family, and he was known for singing along loudly to his music and his epic wipeouts in the trees. He bounced back from the worst crashes, and some of his Moosehead dirt biking crew deemed him the toughest guy they knew. He was the ultimate handyman - always keeping his Swiss Army Knife on his hip and his truck full of tools. He always shared his love of music with everyone, whether through hours of music videos, concerts, or sing-alongs in the car. He knew when to make a joke using his contagious laugh to lighten a serious or sad moment, but he was never afraid or able to hide his sensitivity. He lived his life with integrity, willingness, openness, humor, and humility. He had a unique ability to connect in a special way with everyone he knew. His hugs were strong and long-lasting, just like his friendships. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew and loved him. Jon will be specifically remembered by his wife Leslie Hendershot Faurot; his children who always made him so proud - Shawn Faurot (Kristen), Nicole Faurot (Javier Di Fiori), and Michelle Faurot; grandchildren Hudson and Greyson Faurot; his siblings Jill Gerken, Janice Faurot (Joe Weber), Jean Neering (Mike), Chip Faurot, and George Faurot (Frances); and his many nieces and nephews who brought him much joy. He was preceded in death by a sister, Judith Lynn Faurot, and his parents. A gathering to celebrate his life will be held near his home in Boulder on Tuesday, May 19 at 4:00 pm. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Alzheimer's Association (
