Frank's obituary from the funeral home:
Frank Willard Weeks, Jr. passed away at home on April 10, 2019. He was born in Savannah, GA on August 2, 1952 to Frank W. Weeks and Annice S. Joyner.
Frank is survived by his wife, Joan Baker Weeks; son, Brian Douglas Weeks (wife Kathryn) and grandsons, Benjamin and Booker Weeks of Wilmington, NC; sister, Sarah Godbey (husband Phil) of Savannah, GA; mother-in-law, Gerry Perry of Raleigh, NC; sister-in-law, Margaret Perry (husband Scott) of Raleigh, NC; brother-in-law, John Baker of Wrightsville Beach, NC. He is also survived by many wonderful nieces and nephews.
Frank grew up a Georgia boy and lived in Savannah, McRae, Albany, and Atlanta. After graduating from Armstrong College with a degree in Criminal Justice, he worked in law enforcement and settled in Raleigh, North Carolina where he served 25 years as a Special Agent for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Upon his retirement, he and Joanie moved to Youngsville, NC to a home in the country that he affectionately referred to as Camelot.
Frank cultivated many lifelong friendships over the years through work and his varied passions. He loved working on cars, especially MGs. For several years, he could be found tinkering under his 1971 MG or hanging out for hours in his buddy Eddie May's garage. Frank also loved playing guitar and was especially fond of the four B's: Beatles, Blues, Buffett, and Bluegrass. He enjoyed fishing and yard work, but his favorite pastime, especially in recent years, was having a lively conversation with a good friend.
