Noel Walker Faison Sr., 65, athlete who thrived on competition

Noel Walker Faison Sr., 65, husband of Nila Donn; father of Abby Balderson (Trente) and Walker Faison; and grandfather of Max and Maggie Balderson, died Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019.

Noel’s death was unexpected. He suffered from a rare heart ailment requiring surgery. A valiant effort was not able to save a man well known and loved by many.

Born Dec. 24, 1953, he was the son of Charles Gee and Elizabeth Faison. He was the youngest of six siblings, Anna Bland Fisher (Larry) both deceased, Betty Beasley (John, deceased), Jimmy (Barbara), Bobby (Natalie) and Gee (Celeste) Faison; and a gaggle of nieces, nephews and cousins.

Noel was an athlete who thrived on competition on any field of endeavor. He made many friends in softball, golf and wrestling, specifically The Great Neck and Cox teams. He earned his living as an all-around carpenter and builder. He was employed as a construction supervisor when he died. He loved to laugh and cook seafood.

Like all Faisons, he had a special affinity for Chesapeake Beach and the surrounding area. Of late, he took special pleasure spending time with Nila, Max and Maggie.

A celebration of his life will take place at noon, Friday, Dec. 13, at Baylake United Methodist Church.
