Columbus– Mr. Franklin Michael Walker, age 43, of Columbus, North Carolina, passed away on Sunday, April 30, 2023.  Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28.

Frank was born on July 16, 1979, in North Charleston, South Carolina, where he was the much-loved son of Michael and JoAnn Walker. He is preceded in death by his parents, stepfather, Johnny Gallagher and stepmother, Dorothy Ann Walker.

In his youth, Frank enjoyed crabbing, shrimping, and camping at Edisto State Park. Later he enjoyed karaoke, movies, and crossword puzzles. A Sunday watching the Carolina Panthers was always a good start to the week for him!
