David Warren Faircloth

September 10, 1950 — August 6, 2023

David Warren Faircloth was born in Fitzgerald, GA on September 10, 1950 to the late James Loyce Faircloth Sr. and Eunice Claire Faircloth. Warren was the youngest of his four siblings and was a jokester from an early age. Growing up in Abbeville, Warren learned the importance of education and hard work from his father. After graduating from Wilcox County High School in 1968, Warren studied at Middle Georgia College before graduating with his BBA from the University of Georgia in 1972. After graduation, Warren served in the army before beginning his accounting career with the US Government Accountability Office (GAO). Warren continued his studies at Georgia College and State University earning his MBA.


Warren had a deep love for the University of Georgia and regularly attending football games became a tradition he passed down to his daughter and grandchildren. You could say that Warren’s connection with the University of Georgia goes deeper than just attending football games. In an effort to combat the threat of complacency, UGA adopted the mantra “Better Never Rest” in 2023. It is easy to see how Warren applied this mantra to his own life long before it was adopted by the University. Warren was always a man on the move who rarely took time to rest. Throughout his life he continued completing his annual continuing education for his CPA license long after he was no longer a practicing CPA, because he valued the knowledge he was gaining. When Warren opened Faircloth Realty in 1989, he did not simply help people find new homes. He used his accounting and finance background to provide financial counseling to his clients, especially first-time home buyers, to ensure they were making a purchase that would best fit their needs in a financially responsible way. His commitment to helping others in this way meant that he worked tirelessly to help as many people as possible. Warren was passionate about the real estate profession and dedicated his time to serving the real estate industry. He served as the President of Central Georgia Board of Realtors in 1995, 2007 and 2008. He was honored as the Realtor of the Year in 1995 and 2003. He also achieved Realtor Emeritus in 2019 for 40 years of service to the real estate profession.


Warren was also proud of the Warner Robins community and donated his time to helping make the community better. He served as Vice Chairman of the downtown Redevelopment Authority (RDA) for the City of Warner Robins for a number of years with a focus on bringing new businesses to the downtown area. In this capacity, he was also instrumental in the planning, development, and construction of the new Warner Robins Police Department building on Watson Boulevard. Warren was especially proud of this accomplishment for the city because the new Department building had been truly needed for some time. Warren was also proud of growing up in Abbeville and loved spending time at his pine tree farm in Wilcox County. He took great joy in teaching his daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren how to be good stewards of the land. In the early 2000s, Warren was honored by the state of Georgia with the Forestry Stewardship award.


Warren was a member of Shirley Hills Baptist church where he served throughout the years as a greeter and on the Finance Committee. Warren supported the church’s work within the community and enjoyed helping with the annual Walk-Through Bethlehem ministry. As the church grew, he was instrumental in helping the church secure the financing needed to construct their new sanctuary. Warren was a man of God who served his church faithfully and who saw God’s goodness in everything. One of his favorite things to do was to spend time at the beach enjoying one of God’s greatest creations.


Warren best demonstrated his love for God in how he treated people. Warren loved people and approached everyone he met with a smile. Whether someone was a friend, colleague or recent acquaintance he would take the time to listen and provide encouragement. Warren was the friend that so many in the community turned to when they needed advice or when they needed to be uplifted by his unique laugh. His love of life and those around him led everyone that knew him to love him. Warren’s older brother Jim summed it up perfectly when he wrote the following about his little brother “Bud Lou.”


“The Lord has blessed you with many talents and gifts and you have always been a faithful and conscientious steward thereof. He has blessed you with a rare and incredible combination of high intelligence, personality, perseverance, generosity, wit, kindness, determination and compassion. Of all the gifts and talents I have seen in the Faircloths and Fortners you have the broadest combination I know.”


Warren will be missed greatly by his family, friends and community but his love will live on in all of those he touched during his life. In addition to his parents, Warren was proceeded in death by his wife Sheila McCall Faircloth, brother-in-law Eric Charles Blazi Sr. and great niece Lauren Frances Jones. Warren is survived by his daughter Jennifer Faircloth Farmer (Matt) and grandsons Warren and Pace Farmer of Warner Robins, GA. Warren is also survived by his siblings Martha Bullock, Ava Blazi and James Faircloth (Diane), along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and other loving family members and friends.


Funeral services will be held at the McCullough Funeral Home Chapel in Warner Robins, GA on Thursday August 17th at 3pm. In lieu of visitation, the family invites friends to join them for an ice cream social at the McCullough Farmhouse immediately following the service to share stories about Warren and to celebrate a life well lived.
