Carl "Sing" Faulk, 91 of Cameron, passed away on January 7, 2018.

Sing was born on February 10, 1926 in Creole, LA to Delma Faulk and Margaret LeBeouf Faulk. He was a proud veteran who served in the Army Air Corp during World War II where he was an E6-Staff Sergeant as a B-24 Bomber and Gunner.

After retirement, he was heavily involved with VFW, American Legion, Civil Defense, Cameron Fire Department with his dog Rex, Optomist Club, and a founder of the Cameron Parish Veteran's Memorial Wall. He was a parishioner at Our Lady Star of the Sea. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, afternoon hi ball, playing cards at the camp, and "outlawing." He was an avid gardener where he had 40 fruit trees, cattlemen, quick-witted, and a practical joker. He was a man of few words, but when he spoke, you listened. He made certain that those he cared about had all the opportunities he did not.
