He is survived by his wife Ann Franck, her daughters Leigh Halverson and Dana DelBello, his mother Ilene Franck, brothers David and Lyle Franck, and sisters Lucy Warren and Carole Shaw. He is preceded by his father Charles Franck.
Brian was born on March 2, 1962 and raised in Forest Grove, Oregon. He graduated from Forest Grove High School in 1980 where he was on the track team, attended Lane Community College in Eugene, and worked at Wauna Federal Credit Union in Vernonia.
Brian was a devoted husband, son, brother, co-worker and friend. He enjoyed camping, kayaking and watching sports, especially his Blazers. His kindness, smile and joyous nature touched many lives. The Vernonia community has lost a very gentle, loving, and caring citizen.
He lived a good life and was a wonderful example of how people should treat one another. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends and all who knew him.
The family would like to thank Dr. Kristian Enestvedt and Danielle Vermette at OHSU for their genuine loving care.
A Memorial service to celebrate Brian’s life will be held at 2:00 pm on Sunday January 22, 2017 at Cedar Ridge, 18062 Keasey Road, Vernonia, OR 97064 (Please note change of date)
Flowers and condolences can be sent to Cedar Ridge or donations can be made in his name to Community Home Health and Hospice in Longview, WA.
