Arthur E. Faulkner


Arthur E. Faulkner
Nov. 2, 1940 - Aug. 10, 2018

Arthur E. Faulkner was born Nov. 2, 1940, to Ruby Mae and Howard Faulkner in Anniston, Alabama. He was a graduate of Anniston High School and attended Jacksonville State University, where he played on the offensive line for the Gamecocks.
Arthur married Mary Ann, and they settled in Decatur, where he served on the city council. He worked as a Certified Public Accountant for 45 years.
Arthur was generous, fun-loving, and the first to crack a colorful joke, easily making lifelong friendships with many clients and partners. He tried to retire a few times but he just wasn't a quitter; he was a rock, steady and strong.
Later in life, Arthur became Poppy, and Poppy was excellent at taking the grandkids fishing, rocking them to sleep, and always keeping a secret stash of popsicles. Most of all, he enjoyed time on the water and in the mountains with his family and dogs.
Arthur left this life on Aug. 10, 2018, and he is preceded in death by his wife, Mary Ann Faulkner; his brother, Pat Faulkner (Dianne); and his parents. He is survived by daughter, Lisa Dahlgren (George); son, Scott Faulkner (Lindsey); daughter, Kathy Youngren (Rob); grandson, Joshua Kostic (Nicole); granddaughter, Brooke Kostic; grandson, Gann Faulkner; granddaughter, Hattie Faulkner; and granddaughter, Marley Youngren.
