December 10, 1940 - March 14, 2019
Frank Ward was born December 10, 1940, in Shaw, Mississippi to Nathaniel and Lucinda Ward. The family moved to Toledo, Ohio in his late teens. Frank had a unique perspective on life, he was known as one who used his brain, and he was a good thinker. Frank married Geraldine and together they proved to be a three fold cord not easily broken. Frank enjoyed spending time with his wife Geraldine and they would talk for hours while he was in and out of the hospital or rehabilitation centers. He cared for his families material needs by working at Kay Guitar Factory in Chicago. He retired from UPS after many years of faithful service. He was a humble man always ready to admit when he was in error. Frank loved Jehovah his God and longed for the day when sickness and death would be no more. He dedicated his life to Jehovah in 1958 and symbolized his dedication through water baptism, at an International Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses in New York City. Frank was anxious to help Jehovah’s servants and would freely open his home. He would regale his friends and family with stories of Bible accounts, current events, world happenings, sports and almost anything. Frank was known as a generous person, sharing what he had with others. He enjoyed good food and would frequent restaurants with friends. He thoroughly enjoyed stone crabs, steak and lobster but was equally at home with cooked “soul food”. We all have our ups and downs. Anyone can handle the ups. It is how you handle the downs that will determine how you endure life. Frank enjoyed a good sense of humor and was an excellent story teller. He was adept at using technology, even after blindness took away his sight. Frank learned by bearing life’s indignities with dignity. On March 14, 2019, Frank Ward fell asleep in death. He was preceded in death by his parents Nathaniel and Lucinda Ward. Frank leaves to cherish his memories his loving wife Geraldine; brother Nathaniel Ward; nieces Eunice and Tamira; and a spiritual family too numerous to mention.
