Mike Faherty

Michael W. Faherty, 75, of Liberty Hill, Tex., passed away June 7 in his home surrounded by his loved ones.

Mike was born on April 12, 1942 in Memphis, Tenn., the son of Frank Faherty, Sr. and Elizabeth Morority Faherty.

Mike had a lifelong passion for field trials and bird dogs, which carried him all over the United States in competitions and judging.

Mike’s son Jason recalled that he could not recall a time when there was not an American Field in the house. “There are hundreds here,” he said.

He also confided that no one was aware of the condition that Mike kept secret and which precipitated his death. “We just found out about it two weeks before he died,” Jason said.

Mike was preceded in death by his wife of 39 years, Tanya Faherty. He was ready to join her in heaven and was happy to see her again.

Those left to cherish his memory include his children Jason Faherty and spouse Randi Post of Leander, Tex., and Fred Bledsue and spouse Hallie of Ennis, Tex., and one step grandson Ayden Price, along with his extended family, Alfonzo Godinez and Roberto Garcia whom he held with the highest regard. He was respected and admired by many. Great husband, father and friend.

Mike was be brought back to the land, home and family he adored on June 12, to be with them always, and laid to rest next to his beloved wife Tanya at the Faherty Family Cemetery on the family property.
