Freeman E Franks III

January 6th, 1969 to May 26th, 2020

Freeman Eugene Franks III, 51, of Port Huron, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, May 26, 2020 after a long battle with addiction.

He was born January 6, 1969 in Port Huron to Sharon and the late Freeman Eugene Franks Jr.

Freeman attended Port Huron High School and graduated from Harlem High School in Chicago. Freeman worked for Frost Lighting, the Chicago White Sox, HP Pelzer, Kelly Services and, most recently, Meijer. He was a talented softball player and loved playing in the Port Huron City League. Freeman had a wonderful sense of humor, was big-hearted, made everyone feel loved, and enjoyed being with family and friends. Despite life’s ups and downs, he always had a positive attitude and his spirit never broke. Freeman looked forward to better days with optimism and his beautiful dimpled smile.

He leaves to mourn his passing, his loving mother, Sharon Gardner; three daughters, Shunkita (Jose) Morales, Selina Franks and Sherita Jones; son, Pierce Anderson and Pierce’s mother, Stephanie Anderson; grandchildren, Keilina, Elayah, Ahmiya and Aailyah; two sisters, Dr. Davette Franks-Harvey and Erica “Koko” Franks; aunts, Delores (Charles) Jones, Karon Walker and Susan (Allen) White; nieces and nephews, Dr. Sequoiya Lawson, Yajeel Brown, Christian Harvey and Sarah Lawson; and a host of friends and cousins, including one cousin that was more like an aunt, Phyllis Reed, and three who were more like brothers, Rufus Brown, Richard Shephard and Keith Franks.

Visitation will be held from 12:00-2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 3, 2020 in Pollock-Randall Funeral Home. A limited number of visitors will be allowed in at a time and masks will be required.

A private family service will follow at 2:00 p.m. Friends are welcome to watch the service livestream by going to Freeman’s obituary page on the funeral home website.

Graveside services will be held at 10:00 a.m. Thursday, June 4, 2020 in Lakeside Cemetery, Port Huron.

If Freeman could leave a message for his family and friends, it would be, “Don’t test the waters of substance use. It is a tough battle to win and leads to so much heartache for yourself and those who love you.”
