Faull, Dickson C.
Dickson C. Faull, age 79, of Middleton, passed away Saturday, December 29, 2018 at St. Mary's Hospital surrounded by his family. Dick was born July 12, 1939 in Linden to Whitford and Marguerite (Dickson) Faull. He was a 1957 graduate of Linden High School where he excelled in basketball and baseball. Following high school, he attended Madison Business College. In 1959 he married Kathleen Berry and this union resulted in the birth of their two children--Theresa and Rick. At a very young age, he began working for his uncle Lyle Dickson at the Clark station on Regent Street. Dick managed many gas stations in the Madison area through the years. Later, he delivered for Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Badger Medical Supply, Dean Health, and La Brioche Bakery. Dick was a kindhearted and giving person who would do anything for others. He enjoyed watching and talking sports (especially the Chicago Cubs and Bears), the beautiful view of Lake Mendota from his home, as well as visiting with family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, mother of his children, aunts and uncles, cousins, and friends.
Dick is survived by his special friend, Sharon Dresen of Middleton; daughter, Theresa (Don) Dummer and son, Rick of Cottage Grove; four grandchildren, Danielle, Barrett, Taylor, and Trey Dummer; sister Joette (Arnie) Doye and niece Joelle of Dodgeville, cousins, and friends. He took great pride in the accomplishments of his family.
Friends and family may gather for a graveside service at 11:00 A.M. Friday, January 4, 2019 at the Linden Cemetery with Rev. Gerhardt Miller officiating. A luncheon will follow at the Linden United Methodist Church. Online condolences may be made at www.houckfuneralhomes.com
"Take me out to the ball game;
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack;
I don't care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the Cubbies;
If they don't win it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out
At the old ball game."
