Jack Frank, 77

Jack L. Frank, 77, Poland, passed away on June 3, 2013. He was born on March 3, 1936 in northern Owen County and was the son of the late Cecil G. and Margaret E. [May] Frank. Being one of six children of a farm family, he was a hard worker and enjoyed being out of doors.

He married Retha M. [Rubeck] Frank on July 5, 1959 and she survives.

He is also survived by his daughter, Patti L. Malone and husband Scott, Brazil; his son, Gary L. Frank, Tucson, AZ; his sister, Evelyn M. Frank, Poland; his brother, James D. Frank, Poland and several nieces and nephews.

Jack was an avid wood carver, as well as a mechanic and accomplished welder. He was a former employee of Amax Coal and Rubeck Sawmill. He was also an active member of the Spencer and Cloverdale gun clubs.

Friends and family can verify he was an actual Jackof all-Trades. If he couldn’t fix it, he would make a new one. An outstanding steward of his land, his favorite time was spent riding his heated/air conditioned ATV with his wife, Retha, and their dogs through their beloved woods. He will be missed by many for all of his good deeds and interesting stories of the past.

Funeral services will be held on Thursday, June 6, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. at the Whitaker Funeral Home, Cloverdale. Visitation will be held on Thursday, June 6, 2013 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the funeral home.

Graveside services will be held on Friday, June 7, 2013 at 11:00 AM at the Poland Chapel Cemetery.
