Notes for Robert White Faulk

Obituary of Robert White Faulk (courtesy of Charles Schwiezer) (no name for the newspaper publisher provided).

"Robert W. Faulk was born October 7, 1838, and died, at his residence on the Ouachita river, below Monroe, February 16, 1873. He was the son of the venerable and widely known John T. Faulk - after whom Faulk's chapel is named - and brother of John C. Faulk, who died a member of the Louisiana Conference. From his childhood he was a lover of Jesus and a professing Christian. He led his household to the Master, and was truly known among them as a "priest unto God." He felt himself thoroughly identified with the church in its every experience of joy, sorrow, bereavement and labor. Never, to bless her sons, was voice or hand denied. Nothing but personal sickness ever vacated his place in the congregation. The preacher now will feel bereaved, as he stands in the sacred desk, of appreciation, sympathy and love; nor there only, for his heart was always open to the cares, fears and anxieties of his pastor.

He was peculiar, but his angularities were conscientious - the result of convictions attained by processes and from a standpoint purely his own. This gave his manner at times the appearance of abruptness and harshness; but it was appearance only, for his heart was full of generous, delicate and tender sympathies. Conspicuous among other noble qualities was his liberality. An instance recurs: In 1870, as a member of the board of stewards, he made the assessment on himself, in view of his embarrassment, but in the winding up of the year his crop exceeded his expectations, and he voluntarily increased his subscription $50. Gratitude formed no small element of his beneficence.

During the last few years he ripened rapidly for the kingdom, and death neither took him by surprise nor gave him alarm. The habit of trusting the Savior was too frequently exercised and firmly rooted to be shaken by such an event. To his sould, fully armed and strong in recent and numerous triumphs, the last enemy came as an insignificant reptile that was crushed by his mailed heel.

The church and community participate with his family in their sense of bereavement. The resurrection of the good is precious to us all, but each saint we bury intensities the eagerness of our hope to join our loved ones in heaven. Faulk's Chapel, March 21, 1873"
