Francisco Junkin Obituary – You and the boys are in both my thoughts and prayers at this time. Frank was an amazing and kind man! Proud to have stood by your side through one of the most difficult periods in all of our lives. Even though we aren’t physically together any longer, we still have each other’s memories! Many hugs and prayers are being sent your way! Everyone, please squeeze those you care about a little bit more today and every day going forward. It is impossible for us to predict when they will be gone.
Farewell Lieutenant Colonel Francisco Junkin Kathy I am so sorry to hear of the loss that you and your boys have had to go through. Frank was a remarkable example of the human race. Not only did he command the hundreds, if not thousands, of soldiers under his command, but he also commanded every room he entered. He was both hilarious and witty, making him one of the most entertaining people I’ve ever had the pleasure of conversing with. My heart aches for you and your family during this difficult time. You are all going to be remembered in my prayers.
If God were gracious, all of the soldiers would die as old men, each holding a rifle in their hands and calling out to their sons to follow them over the fence and fire a single shot into the breech.
I’m sorry to have to break the news to everyone who doesn’t already know it, but we abruptly and unexpectedly lost the best friend, father, husband, my soul mate, and great human person yesterday. I’m devastated to inform you all this news. My Frank is gone. He had a heart attack and passed away. Even though the cardiac specialists at St. Vincent’s Hospital worked valiantly to attempt to save his life, God had other plans for him.
