It is hard writing this as I know it has been a long time since my dad left us on this earth. It was even harder not knowing that had so many nice friends on here. My dad and I didn't have the greatest relationship but I have always loved him and think of him often. I often hear songs he sang to me as a kid and wonder what he is doing up there now. I hope you are happy and get to see your family again. Say hi to Pop for me! Love you always and forever... Cari Lyn Faulkner.

Enjoyed his success. Lived with a smile the length and width of Venezuela. Think of him often and all the cooking, fishing, and hunting he loved much.

What an awesome soul...In life you may be fortunate to come across people like John...Sincere, Straightforward, Great Humor and just a very good human being.
When I need a laugh, I always remember of our time in Fort Lauderdale over 20 years ago...He and Patricia met me at a restaurant and for some reason I thought the green stuff put on the plate was Guacamole, so I took a big bite of that and it wasn't Guacamole....it was Wasabi and I was choking out...He and Patricia couldn't stop laughing … Thinking of John, I like to remember that side of him...I miss you my friend!    
Thanks Chidi for putting this together!

Siempre Socio, Es y Sera para mi una bonita experiencia tus recuerdos en aquellos años cuando nos conocimos en aquella empresa Brinard de Venezuela en Anaco, desde ese momento muchos negocios realizamos, hasta el punto de Construir juntos la pequeña empresa FABRISOL INTERNATIONAL, S.A. ... Siempre Socio, como te gustaban los retos, persona brillante y de estrecha Calidad.. ese eras tu. Recuerdo uno de tantos negocios que realizamos, que me llamaste un viernes en la noche, ya descansando, Efrain necesito que me ubiques 12 equipos de soldadura completos para colocarlos el domingo o mas tardar el lunes en la mañana en Pedernales- Tucupita en una gabarra de Santa Fe Drilling... no dormimos esa noche ni el día siguiente, ubicando equipos para embarcarlos en los camiones, ya que los equipos nuestros estaban ya ocupados en otros proyectos... con tu ayuda y la mía reunimos todos los equipos y los colocamos el lunes a las 4 am en el sitio alla en Pedernales.... Recuerdo que me dijiste que al mes íbamos sacando equipos en alquiler y comprando nuevos.. y así se hizo... Tus consejos y discursos los tengo grabados en mi memoria .. Fueron muchas tus anécdota, las reuniones que hacíamos, Recuerdo que te gustaban las hallacas que hacíamos en casa... Siempre estarás vivo para mi Gran Amigo... SIEMPRE SERAS MI AMIGO Y MI SOCIO...

This is Dong Pham with BHP Engineering and Construction LP.
I have known John a short but enjoyable 3 years. From his sincerity and open personality, John gave me immediate credibility to the businesses we discussed. One evening John and I enjoyed a good discussion and a great dinner at the Brazilian restaurant Fogo de Chao, which he really liked and was very happy to have taken me there.

We miss being with nice people when they are gone. John, I will miss you very much.

My condolences to John's family and friends.

Pasan los días y aun no puedo creérmelo, dejas un gran vació en mi corazón papá! Aunque los últimos años no los pude compartir contigo, te llevare en mi corazón por siempre! Lamento tanto no haber podido estar ahí para ti!! Fuiste el mejor padre que la vida pudo darme, todo lo que soy es por ti y por mi madre, todos sus consejos, todas sus palabras de aliento siempre están en mi cabeza recordándome lo que soy! Gracias por enseñarme a hacer los mejores pancakes del mundo, siempre que los preparo recuerdo aquella tarde como si fuese ayer y mi corazón se llena de tristeza por que nunca mas podremos estar así, pero siempre vivirás en mi corazón. Nuestras circunstancias no fueron normales, pero eso no afecta el gran amor que te tengo y siempre te tendré. Gracias por todo lo que me enseñaste, gracias por todo tu amor, gracias por tus regaños, gracias y mil gracias por ser el padre que fuiste. Y como siempre te dije: Nos vemos pronto papito de mi vida, Te amo.

From the first day I met John to the last day I called him on 4/17, our conversation was always filled with fun, laughter and pure joy. Always asking me about the "man in the mirror" and if anything had changed from the last time he looked in the mirror. I would always respond that I broke all my mirrors to keep my sanity intact! We finally agreed to go to lunch and days later I received the sad news that John is gone forever. John is special and will be missed.

John, I will always remember the first time I meet you back in 1975 at the fluidos de perforación camp in Santa Rita. My mother saw you sitting outside and told me to invite to have lunch with us for a good Venezuelan meal. Many years have passed and we remained friends. Just three months ago I had the pleasure to have you and Tommy Thompson for a parrilla at our ranch near Katy. I was so looking forward to another parrilla this week as we planned during OTC week. I will miss you. God has another angel in heaven.

"Manos Aririba"

May 7, 2017

Trey Childers arrived to work one morning in 2006 in a quiet mood.  He been to the superestacion to get a Daily Journal had stopped at the Panaderia La Perla to get a coffee and visit with the the morning gang.  He had left his truck unlocked and  Faulkner had quietly climbed aboard and hidden in the back seat and covered up with a big beach towel. When he had been rolling a few hundred yards or so to the next red light, John grapped his seat belt from behind and poked a finger into his ribs extorting "MANOS ARRIBA".  Poor Trey dreched himself with coffee and saw his life flash before his eyes.   To his relief  a few moments later after identifying the culprit and relizing that this was not his day to be left naked on the side of the road with no car in the nearby monte and they both had a good chuckle over the prank.  

John Faulkner was gold plated character, part of the local scenery and certainly a key player in the US Expat -Venezuela lore of the 80 and 90's in Anaco.  
Bon Voyage amigo.  You left us plenty of good tales. 
Saludos, - Hal - 

The belt buckle

May 3, 2017

I met John in Anaco. He was always smiling, laughing and filled a room with his personality and wit. He had a way of making you feel as if your were friends for life within minutes.

The other thing I remeber from that day was his darn weed belt buckle. Weighed half as much as he did and he knew everyone noticed it, and yet ignored and enjoyed know it was creating an effect. That night later on, he asked me if I had noticed it in an off the cuff way, and what I though. to which my answer was, yes I see it, and remind me to never go thru US customs together. He had the biggest laugh and riffed jokes of that for over 15 minutes leaving us all in stitches.
Fun, helpful, generous and bigger than life. A good friend.
