A former Appellate Judge, a Brigadier General, U. S. Marine Corps, retired, and a Professor of Law, Emeritus, at Pepperdine University School of Law. Dr. Faw taught adult Bible classes since the 1960s and has been a certified lay speaker for the United Methodist Church since about 1975.
<br>
Duane Faw, born July 7, 1920, graduated life on our planet Urantia, on March 26, 2008.
<br>
Duane became the 101st member of The First Urantia Society of Los Angeles (FSULA) on January 18th, 1975 with his wife Lucile. He later served The Urantia Book Fellowship as Chair of Judicial Committee, serving on the Executive Committee from 1979 until 1988. He served again with The Urantia Book Fellowship for an additional term on the General Council from 1991 until 1994 -- a total of 12 years of active service to the Fellowship.
<br>
Duane had an active military career, retiring from the Marine Corps as Brigadier General in 1971, where he served actively as a military pilot and in three wars, World War II, Korea, and Viet Nam. Later in his career, Duane, a practicing attorney, became a Law Professor and Professor Emeriti at Pepperdine University School of Law.
<br>
Duane is also known for his compiled work, The Paramony, a 588 page book which contains nearly 60,000 cross-references paralleling and harmonizing the Bible and The Urantia Book. It also contains over 10,000 cross-references internal to the Bible and several thousand internal to The Urantia Book. Duane and Lucile presented the rights to the Paramony to the Fellowship at the GC meeting in Santa Cruz in 2001.
<br>
Duane’s grandfather and father were Baptist clergymen and he was an amazing scholar of both books. He spent many hours publicly exhibiting The Urantia Book at book fairs and expos and invariably some interested person would ask him how The Urantia Book compares to the Bible, to which he would exuberantly exclaim, “The Urantia Book makes my Bible come alive!” Duane’s Paramony is an invaluable aid for people who study both the Bible and The Urantia Book. Whether you are a student, a truth seeker, a Bible or Urantia Book teacher, a Christian minister, a Jewish rabbi, a theologian, a philosopher, or a God-seeker, the Paramony is a gem. Duane also wrote another splendid book based on the teachings of The Urantia Book entitled, Religion Aught to Make Sense. He also had a remarkable sense of humor and always had a funny joke to tell, the best part of which was the sparkle he got in his eye when he told it.
<br>
The Fellowship officially honored Duane and Lucile Faw along with Meredith and Irene Sprunger at our International Conference in 2002 at Estes Park . We wanted to thank them all for a lifetime of service to God and man and certainly to the Brotherhood of Believers. Duane was distinguished in every sense of the word, truly an officer and gentleman. The world and our Urantia movement have lost a great treasure.
<br>
Farewell ‘General’ until we meet again in one of our Father’s many mansions. We love you dearly and we will miss you!

In Memory of Our Eternal Brother and Sister:
Duane Faw (07-07-1920 − 03-26-2008)
Lucille Faw (11-01-1922 – 02-12-2009)
