Mr. Conway was not only a great husband and father, but also a great provider for his family. He retired from the US Army after 22 years of service. He served three tours in the Korean War and two years in the Vietnam War.

After his retirement from the military, he worked for the ABC State Store as a supervisor in northern Alabama until he retired after 20 years. After his second retirement, he took a break for sixw months, then worked for Winn Dixie for 11 years until the store closed.

Frank was preceded in death by his wife of 58 years, Clara Wilma Conway; and son, Barry Dale Conway.

He is survived by his daughters, Debra Cole, and Belinda Gail DiLucchio; son, Larry Conway; granddaughters, Crystal Holiday, Melodie Hall, and Melinda Cole; great grandchildren, Zella Castaneda and Zachary Hall.

The family would like to thank their caregiver, Lavelle Thomas, who was a godsend to their dad. Every day, when she showed up, he had a sparkle in his eyes. Thank you, Lavelle. She will always be remembered as part of the family.

Visitation was held in the parlor at Frederick-Dean Funeral Home on Dec. 28, 2020, with a graveside service following at Rosemere Cemetery.
