I remember my mother telling me the story of how uncle Frank died. He was her brother and she spoke highly of him. He died two years and one day before I was born. My sister remembers my dad coming home to tell my mother of uncle Franks passing, it was a sad time I'm sure. I saw his name at the bridge on Wayne Memorial just the other day. I was proud. All but one of the Faircloth brothers and sisters have passed away now but I know they were proud of their brother and his service to our community.
