September 5, 1963 April 3, 2019
There are condolences waiting approval on PAUL's Tribute wall
Beloved father of DeMarcus Paul Franklin and the third son to the late Clarence &
Mary Franklin. Paul Timothy Franklin was born on September 5, 1963 at Anne
Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, MD. His mother doted on him because he was
her 'baby boy'. By the time Paul graced us with his presence, his two oldest brothers,
the late Clarence E. Franklin and the late Earl L. Franklin were grown adults and had
their own families.

He attended Southern High School in Harwood, MD from which he graduated in 1981
with a Varsity letter for Football and Wrestling. From there, Paul received his original
orders for the Marines in July 1981. He wore his uniform with pride and you could
always hear him say Semper Fi or shouting "Oorah". He worked in the
Telecommunications field for over 15 years until he fell ill due to a health condition
called Castleman's disease. Unable to continue working, he went out on long term

Paul was once married. On a Friday night in 1985, Paul received a phone call while on
duty at work. The young lady on the other end was Michele Richmond. Little did he
know that from this call that it would not only result in a union, but a child as well.
Five years after being together his heartbeat, DeMarcus was born on December 12, 1990.
Paul and DeMarcus were more than just a father and son, they were two Peas in a Pod.
Paul treasured him so much that at the age of three, he allowed him to cut his hair.
When DeMarcus was done, he looked at his son and said something (in his jibber jabber
3-year-old voice) and handed him the clippers. Paul was extremely proud of the haircut
he received from his son that he wore it patches and all to work for several weeks. They
had a bond that couldn’t' t be denied. Although distance parted them, they were never

Paul loved three things in this world: His Son, his Eagles and his Harley. Paul started
riding motorcycles in the early 90's. His first motorcycle was a dark purple Kawasaki.
He later found an interest in Harley Davidsons and sought out to purchase his first one
where he then completely redesigned it and made it his own. He was a member of two
motorcycle clubs: Down n Dirty MC and the Sons of the Black Caesar. He later sought
to become a Mason where he became a member of Masonic Temple 11275 and Widows
Sons Lodge #7.

Paul leaves us with a lot of great memories, uncontrollable laughter, pictures of the food
he cooked and every now and then a swig of moonshine .... If your lucky.
His spirit will forever remain in our hearts and in our minds, and his legacy will
continue as his son carries on the Franklin name!

Peace and Love as Paul would say!
