May 10, 1923 - April 12, 2017
Ervin R. Faltinosky, 93, passed away peacefully at Flambeau Hospital in Park Falls on April 12, 2017. He was born in Butternut, on May 10, 1923, the son of Frederick and Mary Faltinosky. He completed 8th grade at the Boness country school on the Price and Ashland County Line. At age 19, he was drafted into the United States Army during World War II and served 18 months overseas in the China-Burma-India Theater under General Stillwall to continue the campaign of the Merrill’s Marauders. There he spent six months in India, nine months in Burma, and three months in China. After returning from the war, Erv moved to Libertyville, Illinois where he found employment with International Harvester for 31 years. Upon retirement, he moved back to the Park Falls area and was fortunate to meet the love of his life, Alice Morey of Phillips, WI. Together, they spent 20 years traveling throughout the United States and to Italy and Mexico. They also enjoyed polka dancing and spending time at their “hide out” on the South Fork of the Flambeau River. In the past seven years, Erv would have been seen visiting many of the local establishments, including the Frontier Restaurant or Park Falls Family Restaurant in the morning for coffee and going out for lunch throughout Price County, followed by happy hour either at AJ’s or MT Pockets. Many friends and acquaintances would have the pleasure of listening to one of his stories about the past 100 years.
