He was the devoted son of the late William Faulkner and late Bertha (Dodson) Faulkner. He was born on January 18, 1942 in Washington, DC.

Bob proudly served in the United States Army and served his country. He was a proud American who was honorably discharged after serving his country during the Vietnam War. He was honored to be a member of the American Legion Post 227 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9376.

Family meant everything to Bob and he worked hard. He owned a flooring company, Designer Carpet. He was proud of his strong work ethic. He loved to hear the laughter and see the smiles when family gathered.

They say the true legacy of man is through the eyes of his family. If you knew Bob you know all about his family. He was a happy, friendly, kind, and caring man. He was a great man, husband, father and grandfather who will be missed by many.
