Frank M. Gough
At the age of 79, Frank passed peacefully of liver cancer at home on December 20, 2011. He was born to Helen and Clifford Gough April 26, 1932 in Sweets Mining Camp, Sweets, Utah, which has now disappeared from the map. Frank served his country with the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict and his true passions were hunting and fishing which he excelled at. He was an avid fisherman from the time he picked up a rod and reel. He hunted the high hills of Utah at an early age and continued on to adulthood. Many knew Frank as a man of excellent work ethics and a good sense of humor. Frank was preceded in death by his loving wife of 48 years, Sharron, with whom they had 5 children. Alan (deceased), Sharra (deceased), Lisa, Jan and Jill, and 4 grandchildren, Khayla, A.J., Chandler and Shane. His greatest achievement in life was achieving the status of “GREAT” father, husband, grandfather, brother, son and friend. He is survived by his second wife, Jody and daughters Kelly and Terry, and brother Brooks. Frank gave many loving hours to the Kirkland First Baptist Church over the years and was an active member of the Rotary Club of Bellevue Overlake. His medical problems in later years curbed his volunteering efforts. In Lieu of flowers, remembrances can be made to Bellevue Overlake Rotary and the Harbor Club 777 N.E. 8th Ave. Bellevue, WA 98004. For the many lives that Frank touched, a celebration of his life will be held on January 7, 2012, at 11:00am at the First Baptist Church 701 First Ave., Kirkland, WA 98083. Lunch to follow the memorial service. YOU MADE ME LAUGH A THOUSAND TIMES. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME YOU EVER MADE ME CRY. Loving you, Jody.
