Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem.

H. Frank Record

Ellisville – Frank Record, 88, of Ellisville, passed away Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at his daughters’ home. He was born on May 29, 1931 in Farmington to Roy and Catherine (Callister) Record. He married Mary Lou Anderson in November of 1966, she preceded him in death on November 7, 2015.

Surviving is one daughter, Susan (Brian) Platt of Ellisville and two grandchildren, Taylor and Megan.

Frank graduated from Farmington High School in 1949. He lived in rural Farmington up until 1980 when he moved to his farm in Ellisville. Frank grew up on a dairy farm, ran his own dairy, and for most of his life farmed and operated his disposal businesses, most recently Quality Disposal. Frank and his family also owned and operated Spoon River Home Health for the past 27 years. His favorite greeting “Record’s the name, garbage’s my game!”  He was a member of the Farmington American Legion Post 27 and the Fairview American Legion Post 742.

His hobbies included anything involving his trash routes, his customers, his friends and family. There was nothing he loved more than having fun, joking, and meeting people. His first question was always “where are you from”? He was an avid Trump supporter. Frank loved his auto trader magazines and wheeling and dealing with his vintage cars, bull dozers, and skid steer’s. One of his greatest joys was keeping his office manager, Marla busy with multiple daily phone calls, and special tasks. He always kept his granddaughters laughing with his words of wisdom. His family and friends will miss him greatly.

Visitation will be 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM, followed by service at 2:00 PM on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at Anderson-Sedgwick Funeral Home in Farmington, IL. Rev. David Swain will officiate.
