Meron Frank Lunsford Obituary

Meron Frank Lunsford entered eternal life on October 28, 2017. He was preceded in death by his parents Arcie and Issac Lunsford; brothers Eugene, Aleck, and Bill; and sisters Vivian and Clara.
Frank was born April 8, 1938 in Chicasha, OK. He attended school in the SJUSD from kindergarten thru high school. Frank was an outstanding athlete at SJHS and drew interest from USC for his football prowess. Upon graduation from HS in 1956 he joined the USAF from which he was honorably discharged in 1960. When Frank returned to San Jacinto he brought his bride of one year from Georgia, Dolly (McKeen). The marriage produced two children, Fawn Steffen and Cameron Lunsford, who were the pride and joy of Frank's life. They gave him three grandchildren, Chauntay Donahue, Scott Steffen and Tyler Lunsford and two great grandchildren, Jeramiah Donahue and Miarra Donahue. In addition to the above Frank left behind a sister Bernardine Lunsford and brother Leslie Lunsford. Prior to retirement Frank moved first to Rialto and then to Colton. Frank enjoyed a successful career in the lumber business and later in life remarried. He often returned to the valley to visit friends and attend functions. He was inducted into the Edward Hyatt Athletic Hall of Fame in 2008. Frank was also a founding director for Hemet San Jacinto Valley Jr. All-American Football Program.
