Lawrence “Larry” Allen Frakes, age 67 of Crossville TN, passed away on April 24, 2017. He is survived by his wife- Patricia Frakes, mother- Dolores Frakes, and a number of loving friends and family.
Larry had such a zeal for life. He had a passion for the sport of golf and some might say it was a healthy obsession as well! He was most proud of his ” 3 Holes-in-One “, 1st Place Championship at the Heritage Pine Country Club in Pasco FL, and his Best Ball award! Over the years he had played in many tournaments and placed in many championships. Larry was even proud to receive a citation for Fastest Golf Cart in Heritage Pines. He enjoyed attending The Masters in Augusta GA for the Augusta Nationals and was a proud resident there for 24 plus years.
Not only did he love golf but, he loved traveling the United States, with his wife Pat, in their RV. Those two love birds logged over 44,000 miles together. You could always find a smile on his face when he was BBQ’ing, on the lake, fishing (recreational or in tournaments), spending time with his dogs, or even listening to some “Oldies But Goodies” type of music (Especially them Beach Boys!)
His wife and friends will tell you many great things and stories about Larry like; he believed in “Work Hard and Play Hard”. Friends would say, “He was the nicest guy ever, no really, the most genuinely nicest guys we ever had the privilege of knowing”.
In conclusion, Larry has done so much in the life he lived, was a proud man, husband, and friend. We, your loving friends and family will miss you!
