Frank D Sprinkle
November 27, 2019, Frank D. Sprinkle, loving husband and father and friend, passed away at the age of 86.
Frank was born on November 15, 1933. He had recently celebrated his 86th birthday and 57th wedding anniversary to his loving wife, Janice. He was a hard working, dedicated and principled husband, father and friend.
Born in Cumberland, Kentucky to John and Elizabeth Sprinkle. Frank - one of 11 siblings and a twin - joined the U.S. Air Force at the age of 17. He was stationed in Japan while serving in the Korean War. He also spent time stateside at bases in Wyoming and Oregon, fulfilling an early desire to see the world that existed on the other side of the mountains that surrounded his hometown. He retired from General Motors' Fleetwood Fisher Body plant (Detroit) in 1987 after 35 years of loyal service.
Frank had a wonderful laugh, a wry sense of humor, and was liked by all who knew him. Among his few pleasures in life, Frank loved yard work, organizing his garage, playing golf, watching high school football, and playing dominos with his brother- and sister-in-law, Ron and Linda Davis.
Those close to him would agree that next to his family, "good" coffee was his second love. To that end, if you are not immediate family you'd likely find yourself spending a few tense moments in the event Frank was faced with a decision between a good cup of coffee and throwing you a life preserver.
Pop Pop was loving grandfather to Samantha, Andrew, Clare, Nya, Lydia, Xavi, Olivia and Nathan, all of whom love him dearly. Though his verbal communication was limited as a result of throat cancer treatment in 1992, Frank had the ability to clearly get his points across through animated facial expressions, body language and his great raspy voice. Frank is preceded in death by his father, mother, all siblings, his daughter Jackie, and daughter-in-law Stacey. He is survived by his loving wife, Janice; daughter, Angela; and sons Devin (Lili) and Donnie (Harmony). Frank spent his final days surrounded by family and loved ones wherein he reminded us that we should always find a way to laugh, laugh and laugh some more.
