Obituary

 

Franklin Emery Munnis Jr., passed away on August 8th, 2021, from diabetes.

Born in Nashua on October 3rd, 1958, he attended Nashua Schools graduating from Nashua High in 1977. He served his country honorably as an M.P. in The U.S. Army stationed in Korea.

Frank’s mother, Gladys Errington, passed away on February 27th, 2022. She did not know of his passing and was spared the grief of knowing she had lost another child.

He is predeceased by his father Franklin E Munnis Sr., his stepfather, John Errington as well as his sister, Julie Narkunas.

He is survived by his brother, David Munnis and his wife Melissa of Nashua, his brother, Dan Munnis and his partner Kristine Bell of Merrimack and his brother, Tim Errington and his partner Deborah Werthman of Merrimack. He is survived by his Uncle William Chickering Jr. and his wife Becky of Swanzey, NH, his Aunt Mabel Frazier and her husband Jim of Quarryville, Pennsylvania, and his Great Aunt Agnes Gureckis of West Springfield MA as well as several cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Many knew our brother as the man that walked the streets of Nashua. They didn't know him the way we did. Standing 6'4', he was strong as a bull. He was an acknowledged chess master that could beat anyone at the game. He would give you a dictionary and challenge you to find five words he didn't know. He knew them all.

He taught his little brother, Tim, that a great white shark was known as a Carcharodon carcharias and the difference between cumulus, stratus, and nimbus clouds. He loved thunderstorms and lightning and wanted to be a meteorologist. One time, Tim crushed a homerun into the street in front of Holman Stadium while playing little league. Frank jumped up yelling in Korean "kosicky jeolm-eun sagikkunI" simply put "Great Hit with Intensity!" The memories we have are countless and we will not forget him.

Despite the separation from his family, he will always be remembered as a loving brother and friend. The battle within his mind is over and we pray that he's at peace with his family in the presence of the one true light that is Jesus Christ.
