Alfred “Paul” Franks, age 61, passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his family on Friday, January 31, 2020 after battling ALS.

Paul was born on March 24, 1958 in Tupelo, Mississippi, to Al and June Franks.
Paul was a graduate of Kosciusko High School in 1976, and received a Bachelor’s degree in Bible from Magnolia Bible College in 1980. He married his bride of 42 years, Glenda Black Franks, on September 9, 1977. Paul was a member of the South Huntington Street Church of Christ.
Paul was a man of many talents and served in several different roles over the years including preaching for churches of Christ in Mendenhall, MS, Forest, MS, Ripley, MS, and Lake Charles, LA. He served as Student Recruiter and Director of Development for Magnolia Bible College, and was Director of Development for Sunnybrook Children’s Home. He also was an insurance agent for Alfa Insurance, an owner of several rental properties in Kosciusko, and the owner of Discount Fireworks for over 35 years. His last job was working with his parents and wife as the Assistant Editor for the Magnolia Messenger where he traveled all over the state promoting the Messenger.
Paul was in the Lion’s Club for over 30 years and served as the District Governor in 1995.

As a world traveler, he visited over 30 countries. He directed Christian youth camps for Sardis Lake Christian Camp in Sardis, MS, Camp Red Oak Springs in Newton, TX, and Camp Ruta in Moletai, Lithuania.

Will miss my dear friend and fellow servant of God. Prayers are being offered in Uganda for this fallen servant. He ran the race and has labored hard for the Lord. May the Lord wrap His loving arms around the family during this time.

Glenda, Ashley, Megan, Vincent, June, and family members,

It is with heartfelt love and empathy that I reach out to comfort you at this time with the passing of Paul. He and each of you have been wonderful friends to me and mine throughout the years. When we first moved to Kosciusko, we were neighbors, and you were so good to us. Bonds were forged and I have always admired your family and all of your accomplishments. Please know that I am praying for you all.

Kind regards,
Stephanie Pepper
