Frank was a life-long resident of Northport, AL and member of Jennings Chapel United Methodist Church. He was a devoted husband, father and friend who put the needs and concerns of others above his own. He attended Crestmont Elementary, Northport Jr. High and Tuscaloosa County High School, where he became the symbol of school spirit: Mr. Wildcat. Throughout his high school and adult years Frank was also known for his beautiful singing voice. Frank was always a gracious host, and all were welcomed at his home whether they came to swim in the creek, to enjoy his mother’s iced tea, or feast on BBQ and watch an Alabama football game.
Family and friends are invited to attend a Celebration of Life gathering on Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 1:00 PM at Jennings Chapel United Methodist Church located at 4001 70th Avenue, Northport, AL 35473.
