I am the Great Grand Daughter of Francis Allen Colclough. My mother was Margaret (Le Page) Coe and her mother was Margaret (Colclough) Le Page. I always remember my mother speaking of her Grandfather and how he died in a gun fight protecting the citizens of Midvale Utah. My son has Francis’s police badge. Francis was also a fireman for Midvale Utah. I will always remember my Great Grandfather because of all the stories that were told by my parents. He was a great man.

From a young age my parents always told me the story about this interesting man. The one thing I always remember is her love of the bagpipes. She said her parents loved to listen, reminded them of Scotland and home. She could listen to them for hours. What I understand is the family was good church people. They went to Idaho for some time and returned to Utah. My father wasn't born yet when Frank was alive. If you could see a picture of my father you would know they were related. I'm so glad that people remember such a wonderful man with such conviction. Thanks and you will be remembered.

Frank was my great,great grandfather,his grandson(my grandfather) J. Eugene Scheib told me
he was inspired at an early age to
become a peace officer because of
Frank. He spent his entire adult life
as an officer of the law and he in turn
continues to inspire me every day of
my life...May they both rest in Peace.
