Chip Faulkner Funeral Service Thursday, May 30

May 29, 2019

A wake and funeral service are scheduled for Thursday for Chip Faulkner, longtime taxpayer advocate with Citizens for Limited Taxation.

Faulkner, 73, died Friday, May 24, at a hospice in Worcester after a 15-month battle with pancreatic cancer.

Faulkner was born in Milford, Massachusetts, grew up in Norfolk, lived for a long time in Wrentham, and was living in Attleboro before his last hospitalization.

“He enjoyed reading, especially numerous daily newspapers from around the state and country,” according to an obituary prepared by his family. “He also, enjoyed watching Boston sports, growing tomatoes, watching old Westerns and as a staunch conservative Chip was always willing to verbally spar with any and all uninformed liberals.  He also could be talked into having a few ‘cold ones’ with his cronies at the Red Rooster.”

A wake is scheduled for 10 a.m. to noon Thursday, May 30 at R.J. Ross Funeral Home at 135 South Street in Wrentham. A funeral service is to follow the wake, also at the funeral home.

Burial is at Wrentham Center Cemetery.
