Frank Thomas Anglesey, 67, of Russell, died Friday, August 22, 2014 at Salina Regional Health Center in Salina, Kansas.
Frank was born November 1, 1946 in Bend, Oregon to Glenn and Delberta (Bodda) Anglesey. He spent most of his childhood in Oregon then moved to California at age 13. He graduated from high school in Cloverdale, California and enlisted in the United States Navy and served in Vietnam from 1965-1967.
Frank was united in marriage to Lori Jane Walker on September 5, 1968 in Oregon. This union was blessed with two children, Tami and Dustin. They made their home in Petaluma, California. She preceded him in death on February 14, 1977.
Frank was a man of many trades. He enjoyed traveling; especially the mountains in Colorado and the views off Hwy 1, fishing and collecting antiques. He was known for his stubbornness, but also laughing until he cried. Many friends knew him as Kenny Rogers.
