Judson Brent Faler, born Aug. 12, 1946, in Jackson Hole to Harold and Beulah Millar Faler, of Pinedale, went to be with his Lord and Savior Oct. 14 at the age of 67 after a 10-year battle with cancer.
Jud lived his entire life in Pinedale, graduated from Pinedale High School, Westminster College in Salt Lake City and the University of Wyoming with degrees in business and education. He taught school in Pinedale for two years, then, with his parents, operated Falerís General Store until it was sold in 2008.
Cancer cut short Judís retirement plans, but he was blessed to be able to share his remaining years with loving family and true and trusted friends.
He was instrumental in developing the old Zembo homestead ranch in Boulder into the 2 4 (two four) Ranch and Nursery. 2 4 was Harold Falerís horse brand and is still owned by Beau Faler. Jud and his father enjoyed many peace-filled days at the ranch, fishing, enjoying grandchildren and creating fishing ponds for the young, senior citizens and those with handicaps. Judís desire when he purchased the property was to save a piece of Sublette County for his children and grandchildren. The ranch is only a small portion of the legacy that Jud Faler leaves to his children, grandchildren and beyond.
Judson was preceded in death by his younger brother Lester Millar Faler and his mother Beulah Millar Faler.
He leaves his father Harold; wife Claire; daughters Karen Nilsen, Kristie Wright, Beau Faler Haight and Brenda Faler Szymczak; sons-in-law Wyatt Haight, Barry Nilsen and Peter Szymczak; 13 grandchildren and adopted son and devoted friend Alex Phillips. To have known Jud Faler was to love him. He will be sadly missed by all.
A graveside memorial service was held yesterday at the Pinedale Cemetery.
Donations in Judís memory may be made to Kickiní Cancer thought 1st Bank or Westminster College, 1840 S. 1300 E. SLC, UT 84105. Online condolences can be sent at covillfuneralhome.com
