JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
So I wanted to let a little time pass out of respect for the folks that personally knew Sam Falkner, his family and loved ones before I wrote a small tribute.
When someone passes, all sorts of feelings run wild. From sadness to anger to celebration of the life of the one that passes. All of these are necessary I suppose. Necessary for US to deal with the loss. The one that passes though...they would love to see the impact they leave behind as positive, loving and selfless. I'm sure Sam would love for everyone to celebrate his passing by continuing to impact the world with the passion and sense of cause Sam had. As long as the people that loved Sam are alive and continue to share Sam with the world, Sam is here.
The Jeep Life that Sam has committed so much of himself to represents goodness and love. It represent passion, selflessness and character. Sam loved that lifestyle so much because as a man, he also was representation of those things. So the greatest tribute we could give Sam -TeraFlex- Falkner is a tribute of carrying on the Jeep Life.
I wanted to let a little time pass out of respect for the folks that personally knew Sam Falkner, his family and loved ones before I wrote a small tribute. I'll start with this...
1979 ~ 2016
Samuel Mark Falkner, 36, beloved husband, son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend was called home on February 15, 2016 due to a sudden illness. He was born to goodly parents, Mark & Sidnee Falkner, on July 28th, 1979. Sam married his sweetheart, Lyndsey Adams, May 17th, 2006 in Eagle Mountain, Utah and sealed in the Timpanogos, Utah Temple on August 22nd, 2009 for time and all eternity with their family. Sam and Lyndsey are the proud parents of Kenzie (13), Kierra (11), Gracie (7), and Ammon (3) Falkner.
Sam was a loving family man. He was universally loved and respected by all that had the privilege to know him. Sam loved and lived life to its fullest. Family, Jeeps, motorcycles, movies and friends all filled his life. Sam's passion for the open trail was nourished by his career with the family business, Teraflex. He had a heart the size of a lion with the softness of a teddy bear. The smiles and laughter that he brought to those around him will be missed. Spending mere minutes with this great man left you with the impression that you had been friends for a lifetime. He was a faithful Home-Teacher, Elder, and most recently a Young Men's Leader in the LDS Church. Sam was a gospel scholar by its application more than the written words and a humble man of Christ. Sam will be greatly missed, but we have a smile on our face as we remember him and the faith and values that he stood for.
Sam is survived by his parents, wife, children, siblings; Benjamin (Kimberly) Falkner, Brittany (Niel) Lund, Mindy (Gregory) Buckway, Ian (Melissa) Falkner, and Alie (Jaren) Crane, grandparents; Don (Mary) Falkner, Charles (Karla) Alvey, and Colleen (Alvie) Carter, and 7 nephews and 6 nieces.
