Alvin G. Faulkner, a long-time Pasadena resident, was found dead in his apartment in Pasadena June 1, of apparent heart failure, at the age of 79. Private services and cremation with burial at sea have been arranged.
Mr. Faulkner worked in shipping and receiving at Bullocks' Pasadena department store, now Macy's, for four decades.
A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, he attended Madison
Elementary, Washington Junior High, and Pasadena City College, where he majored in music. He returned to Pasadena a few years ago after half a decade in South Lake Tahoe.
He is survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Vernon Faulkner and Marjorie Strong-Faulkner, currently of Torrance, California.
