Frank W. Greer- Age 86, of Pegram, TN, passed away February 10, 2021.
Frank was a loving husband and father and his family always came first. He was always there with a helping hand if you needed him.
Frank was proud of being born in Pegram, and lived there his whole life, with the exception of 20 months in North Korea when he joined the Army. He served as the US Postmaster in Pegram for 27 years. He also spent many years as the President of the Pegram Community Club, where he was a very large part of getting the Town of Pegram incorporated. He goes by many names: Husband, Dad, PopPop, Postmaster and the Great BBQ Man. He never met a stranger and kept a smile on his face always. A handshake was a sealed deal for him.
He said, “Life is for the Living” and he loved life to the fullest each day.
