MONTCLAIR FAUST

Source: Obituary from a collection by Fauniel Hershberger, a life long resident of Fountain County Indiana, now housed at Crawfordsville District Public Library.

A friend has passed. What higher tribute could one offer than to call him friend? What keener sense of loss could one realize than that a friend has gone forever from our human vision. A gentle man, two words please, and a gentleman both describe Mont Faust, who was familiary to the Covington scene for most of his lifetime, including the fifty years he was a practicing dentist until retirement. He was a friend to his many patients and, as well, to everyone in Covington whom he knew and others beyond that city. Montie was a modest man as a gentle one would be sure to be a quiet man, his words were friendly, their import and tone were directed away from self, the facial expression was smiling or nearly so. Judging by outward indications, his thoughts were above the average level. He supported the better things in human life and believed in the divine life. He was a religious person, but unobtrusively. Few people outside of his family or closest familiars could have guessed his politics. The writer knew him in youth socially, and renewed our acquaintance in recent years. Montie was a successful man as the world measures success but the inner man was on a higher level — he was a gentle one.  --typed by Walt W
