Franklin, Ive been your friend for fifty two years, since Price Elementary. We had a great adventure growing up on the south side. We lived for the moment, we talked about are dreams and we talked about the girls. Then life pulled us in different directions but you always found me. It’s my turn to find you dear friend. You and I will meet again, When your lease expecting it, On some basketball court. I will recognize your face, because I got next game, So I won’t say goodbye my friend. Thank You For Being My Friend. May God Always Bless You and Your Family.
There are some people who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone the light remains. You are that Light My Friend.
I will always love you Franklin, fly with the Angels
I will reaily miss u
Franklin was a kind and sweet man. He gave to those he loved and was a friend to many. My prayers and heartfelt condolences to the Brock Family and the friends that loved him. RIP my friend. You will definitely be missed. 🙏🏾🕊️💙😢✝️
You are truly missed. I am thankful that I got to face time you before God called you home. I will remember the countless times going to your appointments with you or just hanging out with you at home. You had made so many plans that didn’t materialize because you were dealing with your illness. But you lived everyday as if you were going to make them happen. You wanted to have that garage sale, smoke turkey legs to sell during that garage sale. You wanted to get back to the gym with Bonita, and you wanted to go fishing once more… That is one of the conversations I will remember most. Because you had your reels and gear in the back seat. Though we loved you here, Mr.Brock God loved you more. All 33 years you were a true friend. You were a rarity in these current times. And I am thankful that you were a part of my life as much as you were mine. Rest Easy Frank. You aren’t here physically but your presence will forever be a constant memory for us that were by your side when you needed us.
I’ll always remember Franklin, he was one of the good guys. Always joking and smiling, even when things were rough during many football practices and games. I met Franklin while playing JR high football at Dwight middle school he was tough competitor and played like there was no tomorrow. Sadly I had not been to the last class get togethers due to other things on my busy schedule. I always kept him in my prayers as I do all my classmates. He and his contagious personality will be missed by many. God bless you my brotha.. we will see each other again on the other side.
Thank you Lord for truly blessing me with this remarkle friend since kindergarden. We are sadden of your passing
but we know you are in heaven pain free. May the Lord grant the family peace and comfort through this difficult time. Until we meet again.
Praying for Our Family and asking God to hold the Family closer in His loving arms in Jesus name I pray…Amen.
You have been my friend for many years. We played football and basketball together since junior high. You have the biggest heart in the world. I will truly miss you, Brock. We had some crazy times growing up and once we see each other again, it will all be the same. Your integrity as a person is beyond reproach. Whenever any friend was in need you were there. You always kept in touch with me, even through several deployments in Iraq. Brock me and you and Taylor and Ronald have always been close. This bond will never be broken. The way you have helped Big Joe Puente displays how remarkable you are as a human being. Franklin when my son died, then my parents, you, Taylor Ronald and Gene were the first ones to contact me always. But this showed the love we all had for one other. Franklin, you have always been like a brother to me and that will never change. But I will still state for the record. If you had not gotten sick our senior year. We would have been in Austin playing for the state title in basketball. Love You, My Friend.
Family, I love you all, the departure of a loving Son, Brother, Uncle and friend. Knowing you all, Feel that I’ve known Franklin personally also. My heart is with you all. Brenda
You will be missed especially seeing that smile on your face and you making everyone laugh.
My little brother I Miss your voice over the phone seeing you at church singing songs over the phone and sometimes I have to ask I know the song who’s singing , Wow to hear you sing , You made me cry and most of all I miss your smile thank you for being a part of my life, thank you for the good times always no matter how much pain you were seeing you keep a smile thank you for our conversations about our memorabilia that we were collecting talking about our fish tanks and I had too many laughing. You had many collections of different things how we loved our Pets. I never forget the time we went down to Saint Paul Square to see Isaac Hayes in concert. That was the most funniest day because everyone thought that you was Dave Chapelle and I was like wow we laughed about that, he was just always a special little brother to me. I miss you until we meet again I still hear your voice. I still reach for the phone to call you. I still wait on you to call me at night time rest now, my brother, no more pain no more going in and out of the hospital because you told me it was so tiresome , but now peace. My deepest condolences to all the Brock Family and Friends Forever on my Heart.

Prayers to the Brock family and dearest friends. Franklin, it was a true blessing to share good times with you at the 40th high school reunion. I was overjoyed by the Arkansas connection you shared with me, since I now call Arkansas home. You said “Go Hogs!” I love you my Brother! Till we meet again on that celestial shore! God is our Maker and Keeper! In Jesus name, Amen!
I miss you Franklin and your words of wisdom i miss our Saturday phone calls when we would share our dinner recipes. I know that you are with the angels my friend. miss you and love you so much my friend. I know that God has plans for all for us but it is very difficult when our loved ones on earth are taken from us so soon. Love you and God Bless your soul forever and ever. Praying for Mary, Cynthia, Virgil, Mr and Mrs Brock and nieces and nephews. He was so proud of his nieces and nephews and often talked about your accomplishments.
