Frank Joseph Nancarrow

Frank was born Sept. 12, 1940 to Frank and Jackie Nancarrow at their home, which was located on the Apache Trail (State Route 188). He passed quietly into the arms of Our Lord on July 10, 2022.

He was preceded in death by his parents and one sister, Mildred Wills.

Frank is survived by two sisters, Helen Reece and husband Duane, and Nancy Blanchard, as well as several nieces and nephews. He also has two daughters, Lynda and Lori, and two grandsons. He is survived by his loving wife of twenty-nine years, Pearl, stepdaughter Sally and her husband Terry, stepson Keith and his wife Robyn, and numerous step-grandchildren and great-grands.

Frank worked at the telephone company in Globe for five years and after that at the mine in Miami for thirty-eight years. He also held several part- time jobs; at Gibson’s men’s clothing store, at a sporting goods store and, during a layoff, at the Copper Rim School. At retirement, Frank built, owned and operated a gun and antique shop behind his home. ln his later years he concentrated more on selling Globe memorabilia and collectable pocket knives. He was always happy to “open the shop” at any time of day or night when someone came over. Frank was an avid collector of a lot of “stuff.” He was a proud lifetime member of the Globe Elks Club, and insisted we help support the club by going to Taco Wednesdays and many of the Friday night dinners.

We are planning a Celebration of Life to be announced at a later date.
