Obituary for EARL LEON FRANKLIN

Earl Leon Franklin was born on April 8, 1940 in Drury (Lothian) MD. God blessed the late Mary B. and Clarence H. Franklin with their second oldest son of 3 siblings. His oldest brother Clarence Franklin preceded him in death. Earl spent his childhood in the Waysons Corner area of A. A. County.

On Friday, June 12, 2015 in his home, Earl quietly passed away after a long and courageous battle with cancer. God softly whispered “Come onto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28-29.

Earl was married to the late Mary D. Franklin for over 30 years and there were three children born of this union; Renee S. Franklin-Purvey, Earl Lionel and Glen W. Franklin.

August 27, 2012, he was united in holy matrimony to Angela Alexander-Franklin, affectionately called by him “Darling”. No child was born of this union, but there were three stepchildren that he referred to as his own, Danielle A. Richardson, Michelle D. Richardson, Hye`King A. Alexander.

Earl leaves to cherish his memory to love ones, his wife Angela Alexander-Franklin, one brother Paul T. Franklin (Michelle), one aunt Clarice Sellman (Robert), two daughters Renee S. Purvey, Camille Paige, four sons, Charles Eddie (Rose) Forrester, Earl Lionel (Della) Franklin, Glen W. Franklin, Von Franklin, three stepchildren, Danielle A. Richardson (Anthony), Michelle D. Richardson-Butler (Deronta), Hye`King A. Alexander (Ebony), 22 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
