Mr. Frank James Randle was born October 14, 1921 to the late Willie Randle, Sr. and the late Charolette Cox in West Point, MS.
Frank was a United States Veteran; enlisting in the army in 1942, where he served his country in World War II while stationed in Italy. He was honorably discharged in 1946.
Frank was united in Holy Matrimony to the one and only love of his life, Nannye Lou Grady, on March 8, 1947; and to this union, 9 children were born.
Frank accepted and began his relationship with Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at an early age. He joined Barnes United Methodist Church in 1951, where he has been a faithful member ever since.
Frank was extremely loved by all and those who were not family to him biologically, were family to him in an unconditional love which he showered everyone with. Frank was known for his one-of-a-kind, highly acclaimed, mouthwatering rolls, of which he would fulfill countless orders throughout the year. Everyone who walked through his door was always welcomed and greeted with a warm, affectionate smile.
Frank worked at Chrysler for 11 years and retired after 40 years from Indiana National Bank. He was a Godly man of many trades. He enjoyed his family, sports, gardening, catering, and talking politics. One of his favorite things to do was pranking and playing jokes on his family, especially on April Fool's Day. His award-winning garden was something he took pride in, and all people, far and near, would come to admire his breath-taking roses.
Frank was a pillar in the community of which he lived for 64 years. He enjoyed sitting on his porch taking in the sights of his ever-changing neighborhood. He loved connecting with his neighbors and community, and everyone who passed by would look for him sitting in his favorite chair on the porch.
Frank instilled a strong sense of family values and character that poured over into his children for generations to follow. He took the time to create a special bond with every family member, making each feel like they were his favorite. He enjoyed hearing of the accolades and accomplishments of his family.
