On August 6, 1918, God almighty began the first chapter of Frank Seward’s life. He was born to the union of the late Hammel and Lula Melinda Seward in Valdosta Georgia. Frank was one of twelve children born to this union.
Frank spent his adult life in Jacksonville, Florida where he was employed and retired after 35 years as a civilian employee at the Naval Air Station, Cecil Field. His knowledge and passion for cars also allowed him to be a well-known mechanic in the city for many years.
At the early age of 12, Frank obeyed the Gospel of Christ and became a loving, faithful and respectful member of the Church of Christ and served proudly until his departure from this earthly home.
On the evening of March 5, 2019 at the ripened age of 100 years old, our Lord and Savior closed the final chapter of Frank’s life here on earth. He will be greatly missed and never forgotten. His wisdom and love for the Lord will be forever imprinted on the pages of the lives of his family and friends.
Frank leaves to cherish fond memories: a loving and devoted wife, Florina Seward; daughter, Deborah Cooper (Jacksonville, Florida); 3 sons, Eddie (Shantella) Cooper (Marietta, Georgia), Tony (Condace) Cooper (Tallahassee, Florida) and Gary (Mara) Cooper (Tallahassee, Florida); 13 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; and a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers and sisters in Christ, and many beautiful friends.
