George Francklow was one of the nicest persons I have ever had pleasure to know. Met him through Willis Hargrave and our involvement with Heights Rotary. Truly a gentleman and such personality with great wit... he will be missed by so many, but REMEMBERED AND LOVED by all. It was such a pleasure being around him and sharing his enthusiasm for life and his love for his friends in Heights Rotary. May God Bless and be with his beautiful family during this time.
