Jonathon Fauver

October 29, 1967 — June 15, 2021

Jonathon Michael Fauver, 53, of Castle Dale, has gone home to be with his Heavenly Father on June 15, 2021 after a courageous battle with colon cancer. Jonathon was born on October 29, 1967 to Phil and Marilyn Fauver in Rochester, New York. While growing up, his family lived in many different locations. He was a fun-loving, spirited, and adventurous youth. After graduating from Billings West High School in Billings, Montana, he went on to serve an honorable mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the New York, New York mission. He then studied at Brigham Young University Idaho, (then Rick's College). In 1991, he met the love of his life, Wendy Martin, and they were wed in the Atlanta, Georgia Latter-Day Saint Temple on December 27, 1991. They went on to have four children, Brittany, Spencer, Zachery, and Jacob. Jonathon's influence spreads throughout the community. He dedicated his life to helping those in need in counseling services. Always believing in the goodness of people, he became a light for many amidst their darkest moments. He believed everyone can change and this was shown in his love for "his people" in recovery services. Jonathon's welcoming presence gave us a sense of belonging. His family as well as members of the community feel his loss deeply. Another passion Jonathon had is for the earth. He found great joy in cultivating beautiful gardens and landscapes, generously sharing the fruits of his labors with others. As a masterful caretaker of God's green earth, he lives on in the knowledge he has imparted to many over the years. Jonathon joyfully participated as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints throughout his life, faithfully serving in many callings to help build the Kingdom of God. He especially found purpose in helping the youth and doing family history work. We believe he continues that work on the other side of the veil. We will always remember his good humor and Christ-like acceptance of us as we were. We, his children, will treasure forever the knowledge he gave us of a Heavenly Father who exists, and loves us unconditionally. His favorite scripture: Ether 3:19-20 19 And because of the knowledge of this man he could not be kept from beholding within the veil; and he saw the finger of Jesus, which, when he saw, he fell with fear; for he knew that it was the finger of the Lord; and he had faith no longer, for he knew, nothing doubting. 20 Wherefore, having this perfect knowledge of God, he could not be kept from within the veil; therefore he saw Jesus; and he did minister unto him. He is survived by his wife, Wendy; his children, Brittany, Spencer, Zachery, and Jacob; siblings: Gail (and Jeff) Mabe, Jim (and Jennifer) Fauver, Karen (and Robert) Knowles, Bill (and Michelle) Fauver, Tammy (Ken) Mullikin, adopted brother Steven Johnson, and many beloved in-laws and nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, Phil and Marilyn Fauver. We miss our father dearly and ask all who knew him to remember the goodness and beauty he brought into the world. Special thanks to Symbii hospice services, namely Rick, Dr. Williams, Amanda, and Whitney, and Revere Health Oncology, namely Dr. Wallentine and staff, for their excellent care of Jonathon at the end of his life.
