Franklin James Earley, 77, of Albany, GA died Sunday, April 3, 2022 at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital. Funeral services will be conducted Wednesday, April 6, 2022 at 11:00 am at First Baptist Church of Putney. Rev. Danny Evans will officiate.
Frank lived a full, beautiful life, worshiping the Lord and spreading the Word wherever he went. He never met a stranger he didn’t befriend. With a 10th grade education, he created his own business and grew a family with his beloved wife, Mary Ann Earley. Meeting at the grocery store, he was a bagger and Mary Ann was checking out. He thought she was the most beautiful woman he’d ever laid eyes on. She thought he was the most handsome man that she had ever seen. For 58 years they were inseparable. He only smiled in pictures that he and Mary Ann were in together. He took care of her until the day came that he went to be with the good Lord.
God made his heart so big so they could adopt two daughters and then later on found a new daughter, Susan whom he also fell in love with and then got blessed with all his grandkids and great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren.
He loved to hunt, fish, and play golf. He was a man of great faith, the best problem solver, and was always the orchestrator of our family. Our families revolved around him. Whatever he said went and we all loved him dearly.
May his soul rest in peace.
The family will receive friends on Wednesday from 10:00 am until 11:00 am at First Baptist Church of Putney.
