Coach Faulkner presided over my introduction to organized football, and the life lessons that came with that -- even if I didn't recognize them until much later. I was glad that he attended our 50th class reunion so that we could chat again.
My condolences to Pat and all the Faulkner family. Know that Coach had a very positive influence on all the young lives he touched over the years.

I was married to Dicks daughter for about 20 years. Dick and I would go golfing often to get away from the ladies. He was a pretty good golfer and always offered words of wisdom. He was a kind gentle man and loved his family. I am really sorry to hear of his passing but I know in my heart that heaven has gained another angel.

Coach Faulkner was my freshman basketball coach and sophomore year physical education teacher at Upper Sandusky. He treated me very well, and I was glad to be on his team and in his class. Grateful that he was able to attend the Class of ‘65 50th reunion in 2015. My condolences to the Faulkner family.
