Franklin Russell Ollis Sr

August 27, 1973 — January 23, 2024


Franklin Russell Ollis Sr., 50,  passed away January 23rd. Born August 27th,1973. Franklin was smart, witty, handsome and most of all loved by so many. When he met Teresa, the love of his life, he claims he won the jackpot. Not one person he met was an enemy. He would give his shirt off his back to a stranger and has. He loved to tell jokes, stories, and always used big words that none of us ever knew the meanings. Family was everything to Frank. His passion was music, he loved all kinds. He loved playing his bass and guitar. Frank would share his songs he wrote  with family and friends. Everyone knew him from his contagious smile that could light up any room, even till his last days. He took care of his mother till her last breath and took care of Teresa many times over the years with her illnesses. She took care of him till his last breath. Frank will be forever missed and loved by all that knew him.

Franklin is preceded in death by his mom and dad, Elbert Lee Ollis and Rose Ollis.
