Thomson - Mr. Frank Knox Story, Jr., 75, passed away peacefully Monday, September 25, 2023, at his new home, the At Home Senior Living of Thomson facility.
Graveside services will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday, September 27, 2023, in the Westview cemetery, with Chaplain Tom Kalliokoski officiating.
Mr. Story was born in Clarke County, but was raised in Thomson, Georgia. He was a graduate of Thomson High School and the University of Georgia, where he earned a B.A. degree in English. He was an Educator having worked with the McDuffie County, Columbia County and Clarke County School Systems throughout his career. He was a lifelong Presbyterian.
Frank had many good friends in the Thomson area with whom he enjoyed sharing stories of their football trips together. He loved Georgia football, even though he became too nervous to watch or even listen to the games for the last several years. He had a sharp wit about him and would entertain his family with sarcastic comments and observations made with a straight-faced delivery.
When Frank moved to Athens twenty years ago, he befriended his neighbors, Jennifer and Brad Rickard and their four children. They became his “family in Athens” and remained Frank’s loyal and devoted friends until the end.
In Athens, Frank was instrumental in revitalizing the Alpha Delta chapter of Chi Psi fraternity. He loved working in his yard and watching black and white movies.
Frank was preceded in death by his parents, Frank K. and Fan Young Story; a nephew, Charles McClean Cameron; and a niece, Margaret Delle McFadden. He is survived by his two sisters, Sally Cameron, Thomson and Caro (Joseph) Hughes, Augusta; a niece; two nephews and two beautiful great-nieces.
The family would like to offer its special thanks to the residents and staff of At Home Senior Living of Thomson for their love and attention.
Memorials made be made to At Home Senior Living of Thomson or the Rheumatoid Arthritis Foundation.
The family will receive friends after the service on Wednesday at the Cemetery.
