William “Bill” T. Faville, aka Granddad, PopPop, Papa, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Saturday, July 27, 2019 in Chesapeake, Virginia at the age of 79. Bill was predeceased by his parents Alvin M. and Georgina B. Faville.

He is survived by his beautiful family who he cherished dearly: his soulmate and wife, Sharon Ann Vaughan Faville; his sister and partner in crime, Susanne Faville Wilson; his devoted children Amy Faville Bowden (David), Lori Faville Bryant, Jim Bander (Kassy), Holly Marx (Jim), Jen Murphey (Jon), Michael Bander (Tricia), and Scott Bander (Jessica); his 11.5 grandchildren who think he hung the moon~ Heather, Eric, Aiden, Kennedy, Tyler, Kylie, Cole, Lauren, Chloe, Anthony, Ethan, and soon to be Ava. He is also survived by his beloved Canadian cousins.

Bill was born in Cocoa Beach, Florida but was a hardcore Norfolkian. A Norview Pilot Class of 1958 graduate, he attended Old Dominion University and earned his Associate’s Degree from Frederick College. This “paved” the way into his 51 year career in concrete and aggregate sales. After starting as a land surveyor, Bill worked as a sales representative for Southern Materials, Lone Star, Tarmac, Vulcan and finally hung up his safety vest with LuckStone. He made lifelong friends through his affiliations with HRUHCA, AGC, and TBA.

No one embodied the spirit of honor and integrity more than Bill. He was beyond proud to have served his country in the United States Marine Corps and to be a member of the Norview Masonic Lodge #113 AF and AM, and the Scottish Rites Bodies of Norfolk.

Bill’s love for God and his country was second only to his love for his family. He was unconditional love.
With his tie-dye shirts, his gold chains, that barrel laugh, and those twinkly eyes, Bill had an uncanny gift of making you feel like YOU were lighting up the room. He lived every day like it was the best day of his life and to say he never met a stranger would be an understatement. Just ask the Norview Romeos, the Dewald’s Diner Gang, his HUGS ladies, the Flatland Cloggers, and his Nascar FOTS. Bill was truly happiest when he was on the water, cruising on the Missin’ Link with the Fearless Four (Him, Suga, Deb, and Dave), watching his daughters and grandchildren at dance recitals and various sports events, or on out of town adventures with his Suga and Susie.

The family will receive friends at Graham Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 1112 Kempsville Road, Chesapeake on Thursday, August 1, 2019 from 10-11 a.m. A funeral service will begin at 11a.m. at the funeral home. He will be laid to rest with military honors in the mausoleum at Rosewood Memorial Park, Virginia Beach.

In keeping with Bill’s bigger than life personality, we welcome everyone to wear bright colors to celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the American Cancer Society or Wounded Warrior Project. And in Bill’s words, always remember to kiss each other goodnight.

Please visit to view the service and to leave a condolence to the family.

Dear Sharon,
I am so sorry to hear about Bills passing. He was such a fun and loving guy--always surrounded by 'his girls', the nurses and staff from Rand GYN, as either the chauffeur or the dance partner. I know he loved all of them as if they were his own family and as a 'in-law', I felt like a part of the family too. I loved catching up with you and Bill at the various events we've seen each other at over the years. I will miss seeing him at future social gatherings--as I'm sure there will be more! You are in my thoughts a prayers.
With love and deepest sympathy,
Lacy Biddle

I, like so many others, knew Bill through working together in the construction industry. We didn't get to see or speak all that often and then the years past, many years. But I found myself thinking of Bill on occasion, for no particular reason. I would think, wonder how Bill is doing, it would be nice to talk to him. Bill was that kind of guy, made you feel like a friend and I was lucky to have known him. I will continue to think of him and the family. May God be with all of you through this difficult time.

The Bundy Family is deeply saddened by the loss of Bill, but also feel blessed for all the good times we shared. Bill was one of the best men I’ve known. He always made you feel loved and shared his wisdom and experience with us younger guys. Shortly after taking this picture we sat and talked for a while about family and how lucky we both were to be surrounded by the best. Bill always greeted his friends this wide grin and big hug, sometimes a kiss. Everyone who knew him was better off for it. Our sincerest condolences to his family and everyone mourning this loss.

Bill will be missed by the entire highway construction industry. I had the pleasure of knowing Bill for over 34 years while he represented Lone Star, Tarmac, Vulcan & Luck Stone. He was a man of Honor, Commitment & Friendship. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Sharon and the entire Faville family.
