I want to express my deepest sympathy to the Franklin family at this
time. I grew up across the street from the Franklins. A.C took me on many
fishing trips to the Youghiogheny Lake. I remember riding up Jockey Hollow
pulling his boat at 5 am in the morning in the fog to fish all day for the keeper walleyes. We spent many days fishing and bringing home fillet
bags full of walleye. I have great memories of childhood fishing trips with A.C. Thank you Sir, I will never forget them!
Rest in peace, I know my Dad welcomed you home!
