Albert "Frank" Akers Frank Akers won the battle and went home to live with our Heavenly Father on November 29, 2009. Frank was a man of God, a man of honor, a husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was a World War II veteran, successful business man and a Deacon of his church, all of which he was very proud. He made his mark in the world and was loved and respected by all who knew him. Frank was a passionate man in all things that were important to him. He loved to fish, hunt, travel , and grew vegetables that were spectacular. His biggest passion was sharing the word of Jesus with everyone that he met. He is survived by his wife Katherine (Kitty), his best friend for almost 64 years. Frank has two daughters, Mary Sides and her husband, James and Donna Akers-Borho and her husband Royce. Remembering their beloved Pop-Pop are his grandchildren, Dondi and Tim Duffy, Kristi and Jesse Pena, Graham and Dixie Williams, David and Kellie Sides, Misti and Bob Aderhold and Jeff Borho. Frank has nine great grandchildren and one on the way, known as baby Williams, and John and Zane Duffy, Kayla Pena, Justin and Chris Sharp, Caleb and Nathan Sides, Katelyn and Kobe Aderhold. He is also survived by two brothers, Jeff Darrell Akers and Altus Marvin Akers, their wives, children and extended family members.
