Faye Blevins was born on February 1, 1953 in Sparkman, Arkansas to the late O.T. Blevins and Ella Mae Kelly Blevins Butler. He accepted Christ at a young age and was a member of First Baptist Church in Sparkman, Arkansas. Faye was an outgoing and talented kid. His likeable personality and sense of humor was like a magnet that drew people to him. He was a 1972 graduate of Sparkman High School and had developed into an intelligent and handsome young man. Faye lived in several cities during his lifetime; from Hot Springs to Milwaukee. He later moved to Hot Springs, Arkansas where he met and married Loretta Henry; they settled in Hot Springs and started a family. He was an employee of Oaklawn for more than 20 years where he trained horses. Faye always performed above and beyond what was expected of him. Faye loved the attention of family and friends and he always found a way to make a person smile. He enjoyed get-togethers, cooking and listening to some blues. Above all he was an outdoorsman who loved to fish. Fishing was his passion and he looked at it like a kind of a metaphor for a good life: Try your best, hope for the best, have days when you catch something and days when you don't, but always, always be thankful for the sound of the water and the sun in the sky and the chance to cast another reel. He was also known as a great “debater”. He loved a good argument from time to time. If you told Faye he was wrong about something you then had an argument on our hands; he thought he was always right. He was just known for “telling it, like it is”. Faye was an encourager who believed in helping people and he was a true friend. At 63 years of age, on Thursday, May 26, 2016, Faye was called upon by God’s Holy command to leave this temporary life and begin his Eternal Life. He is preceded in death by his father, O. T. Blevins and his mother, Ella Mae Kelly Butler; and his stepfather, George Butler.
