    Chief Pretty Officer Lyman C. Franklin, Retired, Veteran
    USN - WWII
    Wake Forest, North Carolina - 14 Oct 2017


    ABOUT THE MISSION:
    Lyman Franklin was a World War II Veteran and was a member of the fleet in the South Pacific that liberated Guam from the Japanese. He was a Chief Petty Officer and served on six different ships and eight different bases in the US and abroad. He was also in the Korean War and conflict in Laos. Lyman started his naval career as a baker and commissary man. He was the only man to receive the Naval Food Services Excellence Award, twice, of which his picture is hanging today in the mess hall at the Patuxant River Naval Air Station in Maryland. He retired from the navy after 22 years and went to work as the manager of food services at the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest until he retired after 20 years. Lyman was a mason, carpenter, taxidermist, leather craftsman, gardener and loved to play the guitar. He was a former Wake Forest Town Commissioner, was on the board of directors for the Wake Forest Fire Department for 25 years and was a deacon at the Glen Royal Baptist Church. Perhaps he is best remembered as the “Rabbit Man”. He owned and operated a rabbitry and supplied rabbits for medical research to major universities and laboratories. He served for 50 years in the North Carolina Rabbit Breeders Association.
    Lyman’s wife, Jessie Vee Friar Franklin, predeceased him in 2008 after 62 years of marriage. They were next door neighbors and childhood playmates in Hickory, NC and were married in 1946 when he was on leave from Siapan.
    Funeral services for Lyman will be held at 11:00 am Saturday, October 14, 2017 in the Chapel of Bright Funeral Home, Wake Forest. Rev. Robert Faile will officiate. Burial, with military honors will follow in Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary Cemetery.

    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.

    It is with the utmost respect that I offer my condolences to the family of a true American Hero. May you forever rest in the knowledge that your duty was well done and you have the gratitude of an entire nation for your sacrifice and your service. I know that you will now be in the company of your fellow veterans who have gone before you and who will welcome you at Heaven’s Gate upon your arrival. Stand down now and know that we will carry on your legacy of freedom for all our citizens. To your family and friends I ask that God comfort them now in their time of despair and remain with them as they adjust to their loss.
