Condolence: So sorry to hear Frank has died. He was a real character and his stories as recorded in Kathy Shearer's book about the Stuart Farms were vintage Frank! I knew him well from childhood, as I played almost every day with his sisters Ruthie and Edna and spent the night many times. A wonderful family.
The last time I saw and spoke with Frank was at my favorite restaurant, The Farmer's Table, in Honaker. He was full of laughter and stories.
Condolence: So sorry to hear of my dear friends passing. Sympathy to all his family. I had known Frank since before Eric was born and Paula was a little girl.In all these years he never failed to call on my birthday. He was a true friend and I will miss him dearly.
Condolence: Dear Family,
During this time of sorrow, may you find comfort in God's promise that he is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18. May happy memories of Frank Brown be with you always.
Condolence: I am very sorry for your loss of a great man and a great friend.
Frank was a friend of mine from the time I was a small boy.. one of the most interesting characters ever to live in Honaker and a person who had a full life.
After he had an illness that would have totally stopped most of us he kept going and even got the Navy to allow him a ride on an air craft carrier. An amazing man.
He did me a big favor a few years ago by putting me in touch with the great Mac Wiseman and gave me the opportunity to tell Mac what his music and life in music had meant to me.
Frank attended Mac's birthday party every year in Nashville. He met Mac at a concert in Haysi if I remember correctly then they were both young.
That is the least of his accomplishments but I like the story. The stories about his life are endless.
I think he is one of very few people I have ever know who EVERYONE liked.
He is an authentic American character and a legend in Honaker and other parts and will be missed by all of us.
