Franklin L. Wynn
Franklin L. Wynn, age 61, retired USAF Lt. Col., of Niceville, Fla., passed away suddenly on Feb. 11, 1998, and went home to be at peace with his heavenly Father. He had been attending his daughter's basketball game in Jacksonville, Fla., which is where he wanted to be when he left us. Frank was born Sept. 1, 1937, in Alexander City, Ala., to Ada Belle and Felt Wynn. He graduated from Pearl High School in Jackson, Miss., in 1953. Frank received a bachelor's degree from Mississippi State, and a master's degree from Troy State University. Frank honorably served his country in the United States Air Force for over 20 years, retiring in 1982. He was the recipient of numerous awards and decorations. He also had retired from Metric Systems Corp.
He leaves behind his loving wife, Jill; daughter, Krista; sons, Quentin and daughter-in-law, Bonnie, Alan and daughter-in-law, Noel, Geoffrey, Stephen and Michael.

He also leaves behind his faithful and devoted "family members" and best buddies, his dogs, who will dearly miss their "Dad." Frank will be greatly missed by the many friends he made since moving to Niceville in 1981. He made that decision because of the beauty he found here.
Frank was a lover of all sports but his greatest passion was attending his daughter Krista's basketball games at the University of Florida in Jacksonville. This is her senior year and his goal was to make it until she graduated from college. Sadly, our Lord decided something else for Frank; but know he will always be there watching her.
