Frank was born on Feb. 15, 1928, in Granville, NY, the son of the late Lester Bartley Jr. and Irene (Osborne) Bartley.
Frank graduated from Granville High School in 1945. He was a veteran of World War II (serving near the end of the war) and the Korean Conflict. He married the love of his life, June McCullen, in 1952.
He retired from the New York State Department of Corrections after 30 years of service. He was a past member of the North Granville Hose Company, a member of the American Legion Post 323 and a member of the Truthville Baptist Church. Frank enjoyed bowling, gardening and maintaining his property, of which he was very proud.
He was predeceased by his parents, by four sisters and their husbands: Helen (Eldridge) Webster, Doris (Willis) French, Grace (John) Mulhall, Catherine (Howard) Moody, a brother-in-law Theodore McCullen, Bob Fenton and a granddaughter Karen Haag.
He is survived by his wife of 59 years June; his daughter Susan Brady and her husband Jim; a daughter Marjorie Haag and her husband John; a daughter Angela Bartley and a son Christopher and his wife Jammie. In addition he is survived by his grandchildren: Alysson and Kristen Haag, Mia and Isabella Bartley, Christopher and Max Bartley and Mackenzie and Keegan Hunt. Frank also leaves behind several nieces and nephews, including a dear and special niece, Cindy Hoyt, to whom the family is very grateful for her extraordinary caring and kindness.
A funeral service was held Wednesday, March 7, at the Truthville Baptist Church with the Rev. Kevin Gebo officiating. Burial will be in Bethany Cemetery.
Friends were able to call Tuesday, March 6, at the Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville, NY.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that contributions be made to the Truthville Baptist Church, or the Truthville Christian Academy, P.O. Box 157, North Granville, NY 12854-0128
The family would also like to thank the doctors and staff of Granville Family Health and the staff of the Washington County Hospice. Without them Frank could not have spent his final days in his home with family and friends near him.
