Ralph "Mac" Faust of Spring TX, loving husband, father, brother, grandfather and friend lost his courageous battle with Esophageal Cancer early morning of March 7, 2016 at age 59. Those that took the time to get to know Mac found a loving man with a great big heart. He fell in that category of "willing to give you the shirt off of his back". He was loved by many and will forever be in our hearts!

Mac was born in Ft. Bragg, North Carolina on May 25, 1956 to Earnest Faust and Louise Barefoot (Faust) Stevens. He was the first of four brothers. As a child he spent many carefree summers on the farms of North Carolina with his aunts and uncles. He graduated from Osceola County High School in Kissimmee Florida. Athletically blessed he enjoyed Football, Basketball and Track. After High School, Mac enlisted in the US Marine Corps and attended boot camp at Parris Island, SC. When he completed his time with the Marines, he returned to Florida. In 1981 Mac moved to Texas to join his Mother in the family landscaping business, which he continued until his passing.

He is survived by his loving wife Julie, and his beloved children Andrew Christian, daughter Samantha Louise and husband Andrew Scarlett of Memphis, Tennessee, stepson Richard Chad Blackmore and three grandchildren. He is also blessed to have three awesome brothers who went through this fight with their mother several years ago. Christophor Faust of Dunn, NC, Kenneth and Bonny Faust, of Houston, TX, and Michael and Jennifer Stevens of The Woodlands, TX. and his sister, Lisa Satko Zsenyuk and husband Jim of Lake Orion, Michigan. Mac also leaves behind many beloved nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles. many friends that seem like family, and his Chocolate lab Coco.

Being a converted Texas boy, he loved his hunting lease in East Texas. He started taking his son Andrew hunting at the age of 18 months old. They were able to share their love of God, nature, and the fellowship while hunting. Andrew eventually learned hunting wasn't about filling the freezer. It was about turning a stranger into a friend, getting out of the rat race of the big city and spending true quality time together. Mac was also active with friends and family at church and loved being involved in numerous "Tres Dias" Christian retreats.

Mac loved watching sports and the entire gambit of Houston franchises: Texans, Rockets, and Astros throughout his many years here in Texas.

A Celebration of Life was held on the 24th of March at the Gateway Baptist Church located at 2930 Rayford Rd, Spring, Texas 77386. The service began at 11:00am with a light reception following.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to be made to the Esophageal Cancer Awareness Association or donations of time, blood or platelets to the MD Anderson Cancer Centers.
