Franklin Partridge

Franklin R. Partridge, 65, passed away at his home in Chinook Thursday, Sept. 28, 2017.

Franklin was born in Glasgow, Montana, to Richard "Pat" and Ethel Partridge Oct. 30, 1951. He was a 1969 graduate of Glasgow High School.

During his 65 years of life he enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and golf with his friends and family, and I guess plenty of mischief, as the stories are continuing to come. We will not forget to mention his "Star Trek" series. Frank had the ability to know just enough about a subject to make people think he was an expert in the field. Plumbing, electrical, construction, just about anything there was, Frank had some input that made him sound like he had the perfect solution.

He married Marie Butts in September 1969 and they worked at Marv's Conoco. They later moved to the Glasgow air base to work for Trumpane. They had three boys, Chris, Jason and Josh. In 1976, Frank moved with Trumpane to Tehran, Iran. There he met and married Touran Partridge. They moved back to the states in 1978.

Frank hired on with Burlington Northern Railroad in 1978. He later married Shannon Johnson. Frank retired from BNSF in 2011.

He is survived by his sons, Chris Partridge, Jason Partridge and Josh Partridge, all of Glasgow, and stepson Logan Bergeron of Havre; his siblings Sharon (Save) Ferguson of Helena, Susan (Richard) Jaworoski of Denver, Colorado, Patti (Randy) Fought of Perrysberg, Ohio, and John (Debi) Partridge of Fort Peck and too many grandchildren, nieces, nephews - space cadets - to mention.

Frank is preceded in death by his late wife Touran and his parents, Pat and Ethel, and his sisters Sandra Sandidge and Shelia Coates.

Frank wishes to invite all his family and friends to a celebration of life at the Palace Bar in Havre at 2 p.m. Oct. 28. The last round is on Frank.
