Obituary for Frank W. Purdy

Frank W. Purdy, 76, beloved husband of Marion L. (Wolkins) Purdy, with whom he shared 55 years of marriage, died Saturday May 7, 2011 at Beverly Hospital. Born in Beverly, he was the son of the late Bernard C. and Maybelle W. (Nixon) Purdy.

Frank was a loyal man, and had a life long devotion to Jehovah. He loved the ocean and traveling with friends and family. Frank had a beautiful garden and a model rail road that ran through it. He was quick to crack a joke and always had a smile. His day would not be complete without getting a smile from someone. Above all Frank was a loving husband, best friend, and a wonderful devoted father, who will truly be missed.

In addition to his wife, he was survived by his children: Cynthia Langlais and her husband, Robert of Danvers; Frank W. Purdy Jr. and his wife Carla of Beverly, Dorothy Mahoney and her husband Thomas of Coventry, RI; and Pamela Litchfield and her husband Michael of Farmington, NH; a brother Donald Purdy of Beverly; nine grandchildren, Kerri, Matthew, Brittany, Nicole, Christopher, Shannon, Megan, Collin and Kyle; two great grandchildren Daphne and Tyler; and a sister-in-law Gloria Purdy of Beverly. He was predeceased by two brothers Morton Purdy and Malcom John Purdy; a sister: Phyllis Remon, a sister-in-law Linda Purdy; and life-long friends Robert and Louise Hooper.

A Memorial Service will be held at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 79 Endicott Street, Peabody, on Saturday at 2:00P.M. Relatives and friends are invited to attend. There are no visiting hours.
