He was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal in 1944 for administration of training programs for the Women's Army Corps. After retiring from the Army, he worked as Dean of Men at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. He died in 1963 and was buried in Section 4 of Arlington National Cemetery.

His wife, Katherine Reinsel Faith (1897-1973) is buried with him. His son, Lieuenant Colonel Don Carlos Faith, Jr  was killed in action in Korea in 1950 and was awarded the Medal of Honor. His body was never found, but his father arranged to have an "in memory" statement inscribed on the rear of his own gravestone.
