Francisco Junkin Obituary, Death – Farewell Colonel Francisco Junkin, Lt. If God were compassionate, every soldier would die in old age holding his rifle and calling to his sons to accompany him over the fence and fire one more shot into the breech. I am heartbroken to inform you that yesterday, my dearest friend, father, husband, soul mate, and great human being passed away abruptly and unexpectedly. I lost Frank. A heart attack knocked him out. The cardiac staff at St. Vincent’s Hospital tried desperately to save his life, but God had other intentions.
Please, now and every day, hug your loved ones a bit closer. We have no idea when they’ll be gone for good. Wow. My mouth is agape! You and the boys are in my prayers. A very wonderful guy, Frank! Glad to have supported you all the way through this challenging moment in our life with pride. Not together anymore, but at least we have the recollections! Prayers and hugs are on the way! Kathy I’m sorry for the terrible tragedy you and your sons have had to face. Frank was a remarkable human being.
He was the undisputed leader of each room he entered, and he oversaw hundreds, if not thousands, of soldiers. He was one of the most entertaining and astute men I’ve ever met. You and your loved ones have my deepest condolences. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. My heart breaks for you, Kathy. My deepest condolences to you, your sons, and everyone who knew and loved Frank. The Lord be with you and comfort you at this time. I am thinking about you and praying for you.
