The force of gravity acting on an object near Earth's surface is Proportional to the mass of the object. Why does a heavy object not fall faster than a light object (ignoring air resistence)?

This is due to inertia.  Large objects require a greater force of gravity to move them the same distance as a small object.  Gravity exerts greater force on large objects than small objects which allows both to accelerate towards Earth at the same rate.
