Edgar C. Frank

Edgar Charles Frank, age 90 of Linn, passed away Friday, December 26, 2014, at Linn Community Skilled Care.

He was born on December 6, 1924, in Jefferson City to the late Louis and Margaret (Henke) Frank.

Edgar served in the United States Army during World War II in the Asiatic Pacific Theater and was honorably discharged on November 8, 1946.

Edgar was united in marriage to Mary Jane Bax on September 15, 1948, at St Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Folk. She survives of the home in Linn.

His gift of gab made him a successful salesman, but his boyhood was spent on the farm and his love of the land made his return to farming inevitable.

In 1960, he began his 25 years of service with the United States Post Office. After his retirement in May 1985, he began his campaign for Osage County Presiding Commissioner and was elected on November 4, 1986. He also owned and operated Osage Steel Building Systems.

Edgar was a member of the St. George Catholic Church, Knights of Columbus Council #4838 Honorary Life Member, Fraternal Order of Eagles, and Veterans of Foreign Wars, serving as Commander of Post #4756 in Linn from 1976-1977.

Edgar enjoyed spending time with his family, and especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He took great pride in his lawn and garden, his cattle, and his New Holland cab tractor. Nearly every Saturday night was spent dancing with his sweetheart, Mary Jane. He was known to love his highballs and was an expert joke teller.

In addition to his wife of 66 years, Edgar is survived by: one son, Ronnie (Margie) Frank of Linn; two daughters, Judy (Ed) Robinson of Linn, and Shelly (Tim) Stumbaugh of Holts Summit; nine grandchildren, Tammy (Boone) Tyree, Kim (Kevin) Cox, Travis Frank, Troy (Kelly) Frank all of Linn, Brandy (DeWayne) Prenger of Wardsville, Skyler, Trevor, Trey and Seth Stumbaugh of Holts Summit; eleven great grandchildren, Courtney, Dillon and Olivia Dingley, Nash Tyree, Karlee and Kamryn Cox, Sam, Carson and Isabella Prenger, Maya Frank, and Adalynn Skye Moore and expecting a twelfth great grandchild in July 2015; one sister-in-law, Mary Frank, and numerous nieces, nephews, and great nieces and great nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by: one sister, Agnes Marie Frank; three brothers, Norbert, Elmer and Bill Frank; four sisters-in-law, Agnes and JoAnn Frank, Hilda Libbert and Irene Bax; and two brothers-in-law, Andrew "Pat" Libbert and Herbert Bax.
