Frankie was born on May 1, 1962, in Anniston, AL and passed away on April 8, 2019, in Anniston, AL. He often reminisced about the days of growing up in Glen Addie and playing football at Johnston Junior High. In his twenties, Frankie discovered his talent on the skating rink in which he spent most of his time while winning many trophies, awards, and hearts of the young ladies. His pride and joy later in life were his three children, his twins, and his “Tater Bug.” Frankie was an avid watcher of Alabama Crimson Tide Football. He was an outdoorsman that enjoyed fishing with his family and hunting in the woods of Cheaha and Choccolocco Management Area. During his time spent in the early morning woods, he would watch the sunrise, listen to nature, and continue to be amazed at the glorious works of God. Frankie had a contagious smile and a sense of humor like no other. Above all, he loved spending time with his family.
