William Tyler Faulk was born in Stockton, California on Tuesday, August 19th, 1986 and passed away Tuesday, November 17th, 2020 suddenly en route to a family vacation with his wife and children to Oahu, Hawaii. William attended Folsom High School and was Mr. Folsom High during the year he graduated in 2004. He graduated from the Seminary program in his church and served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Mission. He attended Brigham Young University -Hawaii in Laie studying Business Marketing where he met the love of his life Celia Faulk. William most recently worked for Crest Exteriors in Dallas as a Project Manager and tremendously enjoyed his work as he had in true fashion, being so industrious, also started his own LLC. When he was in grade school he had gotten scolded by a grade school teacher for selling a soap solution to disinfect school desks! He was industrious as a youngster wanting to achieve great things! As such, he’d started his own pressure washing business the day he turned 18 years old. :-)
William was a loving son having always brought his mother flowers wherever he found them and continued that memorable tradition when he met his wife. He was known to stop the car, jump out and pick plumerias wherever they were to give to his wife. He was a sweet, loving spirit who cared deeply for his family and loved ones. He enjoyed making everyone laugh, had a great ability to imitate others and always made sure to have fun entertaining everyone with his beautiful music. He was happiest when he was with his family surrounded by the people he loved and that loved him. He was also very talented artistically in addition to his guitar playing and musical talents. He is remembered as giving the best hugs to whomever he was greeting and worked hard to help support home efforts including tirelessly making sure that Christmas was up at their house before they left for their vacation so as to be able to enjoy Christmas upon their return knowing he would be going back to work in Louisiana. The tree was up, the lights on the house and the front yard landscaping completed before they left.
Celia and William married May 1st, 2011and enjoyed the birth of 2 beautiful little girls Adelin (7) and Sophia (4). He affectionately called his girls his “peaches and cream” and told the girls often how “they stole his heart”. His wife and children were his reason for living and his everything to him. Adelin will miss his cooking and going on vacations with Daddy and Sophia will miss playing with him and the tickle game the most. William worked in Louisiana after Hurricane Laura and enjoyed helping people make sure that their homes were properly cared for. He would call home often to tell of people who were suffering under such difficult circumstances and enjoyed being able to help those who were in need. He also was able to become intimately acquainted with his father’s ancestral home and the history of our loved ones while working in Louisiana. He’d had the pleasure of traveling to Israel with his parents when he was young and always fondly remembered spending time in the land where our Savior had dwelt. He’d had an intimate understanding of all things spiritual and his family are confident in the knowledge that he is with our dear loved ones.
