FRANKLIN MONROE BOLIN, “Frankie”, age 70, of Strawberry Plains, TN passed away peacefully to be with his Heavenly Father, on October 14, 2023 with his daughters by his side. He took great pride in his work and previously worked for the Department of Energy as a building/welding inspector at Oak Ridge Nuclear Facility and was a long time member of The Plumbers and Pipefitters of UA Local 102 in Knoxville, TN. He was a 48 year Master Mason at Strawberry Plains Masonic Lodge # 462. His many hobbies included fishing, admiring wildlife, and feeding birds and humming birds. He had a special love and compassion for Horses. He had a deep interest for history, especially the Civil War, and enjoyed hunting for Civil War relics. He was a loving, wonderful daddy and granddad, who cherished his entire family. He had the kindest and most selfless heart, he loved people, never met a stranger, and always loved hearing someone laugh, and would always say, "I got that cackle".
