Frank W. Lennox, age 73, passed away suddenly on November 20, 2016 at the Manor Care facility in north Wilmington where he was undergoing rehabilitation following a car accident in September.
Frank was the son of Alan R. Lennox (who preceded him in death) and Edith D. Lennox, the brother of Barbara L. Higgins and Anne L. Parlin, and the brother-in-law of James K. Higgins and C. Christopher Parlin. Frank also had five nieces and nephews in whom he took a lively interest: Nicole P. Saul, Katherine H. Hood, Elizabeth B. Higgins, Amy P. Feldman, and James L. Higgins.
Frank was retired from Winterthur where he was employed as a gardener for his entire career from 1965 to 2009. He loved working outdoors, especially in such a beautiful environment, and was a highly valued member of their grounds maintenance team.
Frank was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He was diligent in his worship and always enjoyed sharing his joy in living the Gospel. He "pressed forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a brightness of hope and a love of God and of all men." 2 Nephi 32:20. Frank will be missed by those Church members who knew him and loved him. Aside from his family, the Church was by far the most important factor in Frank's life. The family thanks the many members of the Church who provided Frank with a loving and supportive community over the years.
Services for Frank will be held at the Church of Latter-Day Saints located at 500 W. Chestnut Hill Road, Newark, Delaware at noon on Tuesday, November 29, 2016. Burial will be private.
In lieu of flowers, Frank's family suggests making contributions to the Mormon Church's humanitarian efforts at the "LDS Philanthropies" internet website.
