Noel Adolf Faux
October 15, 1933 – August 26, 2019
Noel Faux, 85, passed away on Monday, August 28, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV. He is survived by his wife, Ah-lan Faux, 3 daughters, 5 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren.
Noel was born in Peoria, Illinois in 1933. He served in the United States Navy during the Korean War. He became a pilot during his tour and was stationed near Taiwan and the Philippines. After his service to his country ended, he rejoined Caterpillar, Inc. and worked his way from blue-collar to white-collar before retiring and becoming a permanent resident of Las Vegas. Unwilling to stay retired, he took over and then sold a successful drafting company, and unretired again to work on electronic machines.
Noel enjoyed music, playing the saxophone and dancing. Noel was a kind man and if he had any fault, it was him being overly generous to family, friends, and strangers. As a people person, his genial manner allowed him to easily chat and bond with those people he came across.
At Noel’s request, his family will have a small private ceremony to honor his life and remember the good times. He will be dearly missed by all, but never forgotten.

I remember many fond visits he took driving cross country to help my family with our numerous change of military base moves-to include an extended stay on Fort Polk, LA to provide guardianship care for my son, while my husband and I were deployed. He, along with mom, was graciously strategic during their visits to never be a burden in any way. Additionally, he would cheerfully (of his own self-motivation) make a pot of fresh coffee every morning and take care of our dog throughout the day as we bustled around packing, unpacking, or dealing with holiday activities. I remember the "great team" he made with mom; despite trials that are inevitable in every relationship...he was devoted to mom and our family. For those that had issues with his devotion to mom, please find peace knowing he was wise and knew the difference between those who took advantage of him and those who did not.
I will miss sitting on the porch next to him-with coffee in hand, bantering back and forth about various topics in the news, and silently thinking in my mind how blessed we are to have him in our family. Although, the former action has passed from this life to the next, the latter thoughts are still very much alive. May his new life be without grief and pain as his ashes are laid to rest today.
