Frank Lloyd Pierce

Frank Lloyd Pierce, age 91 of Vandervoort, Arkansas passed away on Monday, November 13, 2017 in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  He was born on Wednesday, July 7, 1926 to Robert and Sally Pierce in Brownwood, Texas.

Frank was married to Joann Pierce for 67 years. He served his country for 21 years, serving in three branches, Navy, Army and the Air Force where he retired in 1968.  In his years of service, he served during World War II, Korea, and Vietnam.  Early on in his military career he became a telephone cable splicer, the backbone of the military communications of those eras, and continued in that profession after retiring from the military.

In the years of Frank’s life, he loved spending time with his three daughters, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and his church family.  He never met a stranger and he loved talking to everyone about the Lord.  If you had a pond he probably fished in it and he loved hunting every back road around.
