On January 2, 1968, he was united in marriage to Jeanie Cantrell.

Frank was a faithful member of the First Presbyterian Church of Caruthersville where he was an Elder and long time Sunday school teacher. He always had a pocket full of candy and a big smile for everyone he greeted.

He worked for Southern Towing Company for many years. He considered his coworkers friends and enjoyed working so much he did not want to retire. One of the biggest highlights of his career was having a towboat named after him, the motor vessel Frank Hollomon.

Frank had many hobbies and interests throughout his life which included bowling, volunteer firefighter, chili competitions and a member of the library board to name a few. He also loved playing golf with his friends and his son for many years. Frank was a prominent member of our community and even had a pizza named after him at Little Pizza Heaven.

His number one priority was his family and he loved them beyond compare. He rarely missed an event of his children and grandchildren, dressed in red and white, red and blue, maroon and white or yellow and blue. He was truly their biggest fan and would drive any distance, rain or shine, to see them. He loved his family and they loved him!
