Franklin was known to have a loving heart; he always spent time with his children, and grandchildren which he enjoyed the most. You’d find him dancing around with his babies and singing to them. He was always cracking jokes. Franklin was the best dad and grandpa anyone can ever ask for. He also enjoyed the outdoors, trapping, hunting and picking berries in the kettle hills. He sure touched many lives when he passed away. He loved spending time with his good friends and there was never a dull moment when you were around him. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers during this tough time. Our dad was definitely one of a kind to us.
