Obituary for Robert G. Fauscett
Robert G. Fauscett, 47, of Dawsonville passed away Sunday October 8, 2017 at Northside Forsyth Hospital following a short illness.
Born September 17, 1970, Robert was a lifelong resident of Dawson County. He was a graduate of Dawson County High School and worked as a residential builder. Robert was a loving father to Maggie and Benjamin. He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing, reading, and music and instilled an appreciation for the outdoors in his children. Nothing made him happier than time with his family and friends. His involvement and volunteer work at Bearfoot Ranch was an activity that he valued greatly and one that he shared with his daughter. He acquired a family at Bearfoot Ranch which he held dear to his heart as they have remained a consistent support to him and his family. Robert and his son enjoyed spending time traveling and golfing. Despite his persistent struggle to overcome a long term battle with depression and alcoholism, he managed to touch the lives of others with his humor, kindness and generosity. He will be missed greatly and will remain in our hearts as we know that he is free from his fight and is at long last enjoying eternal peace.
Surviving are his children, Margaret Fauscett, Benjamin Fauscett, and their mother, Erica Fauscett, Cumming; mother, Caroline Fauscett, Dawsonville; father and stepmother, Marvin and Martha Fauscett, Dawsonville; sister, Amanda Fauscett and her fiancé, Brett Tattnall, Athens; nephew, Dylan Tattnall; stepsisters, Jill Farmer, Atlanta, Holly Farmer, Dawsonville; stepbrother and sister in law, Greg and Kara Farmer, Seattle, WA; and other relatives.
