Harold Norman "Norm" Faver

Norman Faver of Aztec NM passed away peacefully surrounded by his family to be greeted at the pearly gates by the lord’s open arms on July 16, 2022, at San Juan Regional Hospital in Farmington NM.

Norman was born in Phoenix, AZ on February 9, 1941, to Marilyn and Albert Faver. He is preceded in death by his parents, in-laws Waldo & Nancy Bozarth, stepmom Angie Faver, brother Art Faver, and sister Donna Zurcher.

In 1952, the Faver family moved to Katherine’s Landing on Lake Mohave to develop Lake Mohave Resort on the Colorado River.  His astonishing work ethic started at an early age, he worked with the family building the resort.  At the age of 14 he met the love of his life, Martha Bozarth the courtship went on for four years as high school sweethearts. They married and were lifelong partners celebrating 64 years of marriage this past 4th of July. In his younger days he worked as a Brakeman on the Santa Fe Railroad. Norman developed his love of ranching, working on the Bozarth family ranches in Nevada and Arizona.  In 1969, Norman and Martha relocated their family to Farmington NM. He established himself in the oilfield first and soon learned he was the type of man to call the shots. Moving to Farmington, NM is where his entrepreneurship skyrocketed. Being a jack of all trades, Norman and Martha purchased and ran a multitude of business’s including: The Lamplighter Mobile Home Park, Rainbow Trailer Sales now known as Faver’s Homes serving the Four Corners for 50 years, Fergie’s Mobile Home Park, Royal Mobile Home Park, Faver’s Horse Trailers & Car Sales, Tribal Arts Silversmith & Jewelry, Midas Muffler, El Poquito Subdivision, Unique Furnishings, and Faver Gabeldon Westside Estates. Of all his career endeavors Norman invested in, his favorite was anything that involved a horse (ranching, horse & cattle trading).

 

Norman was a man of high morals, values, and standards.  He believed in educating his family, staff and customers.  His favorite saying was, “If you haven’t learned something you haven’t had a good day.” He was a man of few words but when he spoke it was with great wisdom, to which everyone listened.  He believed in giving back to his community and industry.  He was one of the original founders of the New Mexico Manufactured Housing Association, serving as a Retailer District Board of Director member for decades, a 2 Term President, and the State’s National Delegate. He received the most distinguished honor in the industry, the New Mexico Manufactured Housing Association Lifetime Achievement Award.

 

His truest passion was the zest for living life to the fullest with his family. He was a dancing King, when Norman and Martha hit the floor people stepped aside to watch the show. He was an excellent pilot and accomplished team roper. He enjoyed teaching his children and grandchildren the love of ranching, roping, golfing, hunting, fishing, snow skiing, water skiing and flying. His golfing and roping partners loved to travel with him as he always had a story and a joke to tell.

 

He leaves behind the love of his life Martha Faver, Sisters Edie Gearhart (Jerry), Dee Kennedy, Brother Ed Zurcher, Sister-in-law Pauline Faver. Children Kathy Faver-Myer, Norman Faver Jr., Kandice Cochrane (Rick), Diana Fancher. Grandchildren Cody Myer (Stormie Menge), Cory Cochrane, Destiny Cochrane, Denton Faver, Jentry Faver, Tiffany Herrmann (David).
