OBITUARY

William Franklin Black III

June 3, 1966June 23, 2020

Charlotte - Frank, 54, passed away Tuesday, June 24, 2020 peacefully at Hospice of Union County after a 6 month battle with cancer. Born June 3, 1966 in Charlotte, he was the son of the late William Frank Black, Jr. and Diane Miller Sperau.

Following graduation from South Mecklenburg High School he proudly served in the U.S. Marine Corps. After his service ended, Frank attended and graduated from UNCC with a degree in Criminal Justice.

Frank was generous with his time and had a passion for taking care of others. Frank served as a caregiver for his grandfather, followed by his grandmother, and devoted countless hours caring for his father who also battled cancer. Frank was a lover of dogs and had a special love for his mom’s golden retriever, Soffee. His extreme love for his mom, dad, brother, nephews, nieces, cousins and extended family were evident in every holiday gathering and he would never miss an opportunity to gather with his family.

He is survived by his mother, Diane Sperau; brother, Eric W. Black; Eric’s wife, Amy and nephews and nieces, Sara-Ashlyn, Madyson and Nicholas Black; his aunt, Sally Miller and her two sons, Jay Miller (Sondra) and Malcolm Miller (Carolyn) and their children, Brian, Brittany and Laura.

A memorial service to celebrate Frank’s life will be at a later date.

As a fellow veteran who served his nation, I can say that it is never easy to learn of another patriot’s premature departure. However, the loss of Frank is much harder, as he was blessed with the noble virtues our European ancestors strived for, the character that made kings of honor long ago. And so for Frank I am fortunate and grateful that I was to hear his voice and commentary nearly every day for more than five years. But it is with deep regret that I never met this warrior for truth in person. I look forward to shaking Frank’s hand in Valhalla. Until then, we all will surely miss you Frank!

I was one of Frank's caregivers at Hospice. I am so glad I was able to spend time talking to him and getting to know him. I can truly say that it was an honor being allowed to care for him. I enjoyed eating Captain Crunch cereal with him and sharing a Chick Fil-A sandwich with him! LOL.. Frank was loved by all of us and we are mourning his loss along with his family and friends. I want to thank Frank for the lasting memories he has left me with and I am so proud I to have called him my FRIEND.!
RIParadise Frank💕🙏

Lest I be not thought guilty of harsh words, but I’m both speechless and furious the way Frank left us.

For weeks I felt helpless not being able to help Frank.

We shall meet again my friend, graced with Tim and Ian to fuel our passion for vintage flair of better times.

Sending my sympathy and prayers treasured with great memories of friendship that will never end

Our sympathy and prayers go out to Franklin's family for their loss. He was a great person that dedicated his life to taking care of his family members in time of need. His commitment to family and country will be his legacy.

Even though Franklin will not be here in person, he is still guiding his family in spirit reunited with his Grandparents and Dad in Heaven.

I am sure God has a special place for Franklin to reward him for his commitment to family and friends.

Rest in peace, job well done Marine!

Never met Frank but I feel as I did when he would call into radio shows. I first heard him call into a show a few years ago. He spoke his mind, told the truth, and never backed down. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. God speed Frank and R.I.P.

OORAH!

Truth is hate speech to those who hate the truth!

It was a pleasure to serve with Frank in this movement of truth. To call into radio talk shows red-pilling millions of people. You always knew where you stood with Frank. We could all learn a lesson.

It was my pleasure to know Frank and call him my friend. Frank was a true warrior for the truth. I will forever miss his calls his text and his commentary. The truth is hate to those that hate the truth. And God Help Us All. Rest In Peace
