~~FRANKIE LYNN WALLER
October 25, 1953 – August 9, 2017
Frankie Lynn Waller peacefully passed away at home on Wednesday, August 9, 2017.
His friendliness and kindness to everyone he met is a tribute to the beauty of his heart and soul. He loved his children, Frank and Jessie more than life itself. He never thought he could love anyone more until his daughter-in-law (Dezareé Waller) gave birth to his first grandson, Trent, almost 2 years ago.
He enjoyed going to see the Bound Brook Lady Crusaders basketball team play and cheered them on as though his daughter was still playing. He cherished his morning breakfasts at the Golden Corner with his son after his night shifts. He looked forward to his traditional fishing trips with his nieces and nephews. He never missed an event his children were a part of and always helped them the best that he could. He became a crossing guard after retirement in Bound Brook. He would light up and smile as all the children passed him and gestured a good morning wave. He was the funny one in the family who always made us laugh, but yet the compassionate one who always consoled us when we were down.
He will be forever missed by his two children, Jessie and Frank, his daughter-in-law Dezareé, his grandson Trent, and his once wife and best friend forever, Fran. He also leaves behind his sister-in-laws (Molly Duska, Lena Civitano, Robin Mauro, and Maria Waller), brother-in-laws, (John Mauro and Michael Duska), 3 nieces (Kristen and Ashley Duska, and Christina Waller) and 4 nephews (Anthony and Michael Mauro, Brian Spilatro and Zeb Waller) whom he also loved dearly.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. Your presence we will miss, your memories we will treasure, we will love you always, and forget you never.
Friends will be received 5:00 – 9:00 P.M. Monday, August 14, at Hagan-Chamberlain Funeral Home, 225 Mountain Avenue, Bound Brook. Cremation will be private.
