On November 8, 2018 Rion Adrian Faulkner, our baby boy, passed away. Rion was three years old and as lively as a boy could ever be. Rion loved to play with his dinosaurs, especially his t-tops or more recently ceratops (triceratops) as he called it, and watch Jurassic Park with his daddy. He always had a smile on his face and loved life. He loved the trips to the park with his mommy and his best friend Logan. At the park Rion would swing, run, and play. He loved to dance to music, sometimes even head bang to metal songs. The boy could move like Elvis on stage without ever being shown how to dance. Rion would grab his daddy’s deer call he let him play with and run through the house blowing on it. It would drive his dog, Bear, crazy and he would bark the whole time. We always found this to be funny. He loved to be tickled by his mommy and daddy and be chased through the house.

He loved going to see his best friend Logie-Bear (Logan, but that isn’t what we called him) and his “Aunt Rhi” (Rhiannon Tollefson). Never was there a day Rion didn’t ask to go and see Logie and Zeus. He was so loved by everyone, his mommy and daddy, his uncles and aunts, his police family in Camden, and his grandparents. His Grammy always called him her special boy. Some called him “Mr. Dreamy Eyes”, we called him “Turkey”. Our Turkey.

He is survived in death by his parents, Alec N. Faulkner and Jessica D. (Swearengin) Faulkner. His grandmothers Delona A. Faulkner and Regina K. Pannell. His Grandfather Adam E. Faulkner. His Aunt and Uncles, Christopher and Megan Pannell, Jesse and Francie Berglund, and Lakyn Faulkner. Along side many other family members.

Visitation will be on Tuesday, November 13th from 5-7pm at Young’s Funeral Directors in El Dorado. Funeral service will be at 2 pm, Wednesday, November 14th in the chapel of Young's Funeral Directors. Interment will follow at Arlington Memorial Park. Please come dressed colorfully and wear something with Dino’s if you have it. Rion will love it and so will we.

In lieu of flowers, please bring a toy to donate to the Camden Police Department’s Christmas Cops program in memory of Rion.

There are a million things I could say about Rion, and his family. But the most significant thing, is that they were my family, maybe not by blood, but family none the less. Rion was always so happy to see Logan, my son, and logan him. They were the absolute best of friends, as are me and Jessica. If there is two things I'm certain of, it is that Rion was loved beyond measure, and Rion loved more than any child or adult I know.
I use to hold Rion like a baby and rock him back and forth and sing "Baby Rion, Baby Rion", and he would just hold on to me and laugh and laugh and laugh. He thought that was so funny, and I loved that little laugh, it melted my heart everytime. This life will never be same without Rion, but one thing I know for sure is, that me, nor Logan, will ever forget him! And as for his mommy and daddy, I will try my hardest every day to help them heal, make them happy, and remind them how loved they are.

All my love sweet boy,
-Aunt-Rhi<3

My sweet Rion, Grammie loves you more than words can ever express. You have always been my sweet little man, my little angel. You have brought me so much joy and happiness. My world has always been so much brighter because of you. Grammie will hold you in her heart always. I love you honey! Alec, as your mother, you know that I'm here for you and Jessica. I know how much your heart is breaking. I wish there was some way I could ease the pain you're both feeling. Just know I love you and I'm here for you. Rion has given us all the gift of love. What a blessing he is and will always be to our family. I pray God will wrap you both in his loving arms and bring you peace and comfort today and ever day forward. I love you!

Three Christmas ago....Two smiling faces have left us and joined each other in heaven while we have added one more with one more on the way since this picture was taken. As disfunctional as a family can be, a family we are.

Rion loved coming to my office to get suckers and any other goodies I had. He would come spend the night with my daughter when mom had drill and Dad had to work. He was one of my sweet boys who I will forever miss! We love You little man! In this picture he was enjoying blueberry pancakes he helped me make!
