Skylar Lee Faust was born in Mason City, Iowa on November 30, 1992, and went home to be with His Lord and Savior on November 26th, 2019.

Sky grew up in Iowa and graduated in 2012 from Southeast Polk High School in Des Moines. Sky loved animals and spending time with family and friends. His professional life the last seven years were spent using his talents and creativity as General Manager at Milroy’s Tuxedos in Des Moines. Sky was active in sponsoring many galas, the Black & Blue Ball and Make-A-Wish Foundation. His dream was to own a small ranch on the outskirts of the city where he would foster and take care of chickens, dogs, goats, a cow and a couple of alpacas.

To know Skylar was to be loved and cared for completely and honestly. His laugh was infectious and his smile was like no other. Skylar had so many friends; he loved visiting South Carolina to stay with his family and spend time on the beach. Skylar always told his mom that he was her 3rd nugget, but really he was her golden star and still is.

Those left to cherish his memory include his loving mom & step-dad, K’Lee and Colin Latham of Bluffton, SC; father & step-mom, Peter and Nikki Faust of Clear Lake, IA; brothers, Danny (Shannon) Faust of Fort Collins, CO, and Charles James Faust of Clear Lake, IA; sisters, Karisa (Dan) Gustafson of Grass Lake, MI, and Sky’s special little sister, Rose of Bluffton, SC; grandfather, Ray Faust of Clear Lake, IA; and Skylar’s partner, Rigo Perez of Des Moines, IA.

Skylar was preceded in death by his biological father, Tony Villela; grandparents, Don and Betty Nelson and his grandmother, Iris Faust.

John 14:27 – Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

A special thanks to the excellent care given to Skylar in the last month from University of Nebraska & Iowa Methodist Hospital in Des Moines.
