Energy cannot be destroyed, merely transferred. On July 4th, 2015 the unbelievable energy that was Dr. Alois Falkenstein transferred back to the earth which he loved while his soul returned to the heavens. Born May 3rd, 1947 in Hubing, Germany; his energy will be remembered by his beautiful wife Myra Jane Falkenstein, his two handsome sons Christian and Alexander, along with his compassionate daughter-in-law Danielle and two caring grandchildren Vincent and Heidi. His accomplishments were many, including his time as an officer in the Air Force where he was able to travel the world and embrace the diversity of humanity. Humble, industrious, and dedicated to his work and his patients, Dr. Falkenstein diligently cared for his patients for 36 years as a prominent Ophthalmologist in the Mesa community. His passionate energy continued in his backyard where he defied the Arizona sun and grew exotic and tropical fruit including dragon fruit, mango, papaya, lychees, plus countless others. He was a teacher and mentor to many. He will be forever missed, but never forgotten.

Memorial services will be held on Friday, July 17th at Bunker’s Garden Chapel, 33 N. Centennial Way, Mesa, AZ at 10 AM.

    Haven’t spoken to Al since I retired 3 years ago, but remembered when he came to Mesa and always found him to a pleasant, friendly, and caring individual. Sorry to hear about his passing.

  • Ron Kreutzberg, AZ Optical

    Jane,
    Sorry to hear about Al. I just saw him last month and I am so happy that I got to see him and visit with him.
    If I can help you in any way please let me know.

    I will always be grateful to Dr. Falkenstein for his excellent care. His warmth, caring, and genuineness served as a model for me in my work as a counselor.

    Dr Falkenstein was a friend of the family, and in recent years when I was having problems with my eyes, he was the compassionate, patient and encouraging doctor I needed. He saw me through some of the toughest days with advice and humor that were priceless. I will miss him terribly.

  • Paul and Rachel Nedbalek

    Dr. Falkenstein was a dear caring doctor to our family for about 20 years. We will definitely miss his compassionate care, as well as that of his staff. May God be with each member of his family as they mourn his loss.

  • Dr. Falkenstein was a wonderful man. I was a patient the last 10 years and when it came time for my son Josh to have his eyes checked I was so glad to have my son see him. Our last visit in May we discussed his impending retirement and he said he was looking forward to spending more time with his family. I am so sorry for your loss. He was a kind man and will be missed by many.

  • To Mr. Falkenstein’s family, I’m deeply sorry for your loss. It’s my hope that you can draw comfort and strength from Jehovah God’s promises in the Bible at Revelation 21: 3, 4 and John 5: 28, 29 that there will soon be a time when there will be no more death, and we will see our dead loved ones again. Please accept my deepest condolences.
