Obituary for Franklin Delanor Smith

Franklin Delanor Smith, 85, passed away November 29, 2017. Franklin worked for the Ford Motor Company for 30 years and had a well-drilling business that kept him busy after retirement. He was a hunter, fisherman, gardener, and nature lover. He will be most remembered as a man devoted to his family and friends. Left to cherish his memory are Dorothy Smith, his devoted wife for 59 years; children Debra Atwood (husband Larry) and Victoria Leigh (husband Michael); grandchildren (the joys of his life) Olivia Michelle Atwood, Hayley Nicole Atwood, Elizabeth Ashley Atwood, and Cortney Alison Leigh; great-grandson Mason Tucker Brannock; and siblings Alvin Smith, Linda Kay Smith, and Connie Matthews. Services will be held Tuesday, December 5, 2017, at 12:30 pm at Hollomon-Brown Funeral Home, Bayside Chapel. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Following the service will be a graveside service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad.
