Obituary for Franklin Corydon Clapp

Obituary of Franklin Corydon Clapp – March 8, l938 – June 20, 2019

Frank passed away at his home after a short bout with cancer. He was cared for by his family and visited by as many of his family as could come. His Father's Day was a wonderful celebration with
eight members of his family gathered around his bed, and Frank telling tales of his youth and marriage.
He was born in Eufaula, AL, the youngest child of Frank Charles Clapp and Benita Bailey, who
predeceased him along with his brothers, Allen F. Clapp and Merwin B Clapp and his sister Florence Langford.
He leaves behind his wife of nearly sixty years, Barbara Tamblyn Clapp; two daughters; Sharon Marie Cooper (Rick) and Judi Denise Perkins (Brad); seven grandchildren, Richard Cooper (Heather), Robert Cooper (Margaret), Jennifer Gilroy (Oscar), Christina MacDougall (Daniel), Cory Perkins (Karen) Casey Perkins (fiancee Alexis), and Scott Perkins; a sister, Esther Welch (James), and a sister-in-law Katherine Aderholt Clapp Giddins. His twelfth great grandchild is due in October.
Frank graduated from A. P. I. (Auburn University) in l959 with a degree in Civil Engineering and two months later married fellow student Barbara Tamblyn. He worked as an engineer for Chicago Bridge and Iron for twenty seven years, starting in the Birmingham office. His career with them enabled him to live in the Chicago area, Houston, England, Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, as well as in New York State and Nebraska, Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi. After leaving CBI, he worked for Ted Dasher and Assoc. in Birmingham, AL, settling down in Pleasant Grove, AL. to be close to his wife's parents as they aged. He volunteered with a program that helped elderly get repairs for their homes that they could not otherwise afford. He also began volunteering with Habitat for Humanity and VITA and AARP tax assistance programs.
When he retired, they moved to Missouri City, TX to be near their children and grandchildren.
Never one to be idle, he spent his retirement years as a handy man – enjoying the company of his
customers -- and continuing his volunteer tax work during the tax season.
Frank was a conservative in thought, word, and deed; always willing to lend a helping hand to friends, neighbors, family. and strangers. Problems were to be taken apart, studied and solved, not lamented over. Our family will miss his steady love, guidance and generosity. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date to allow for his grandchildren, overseas and here in the states, to be present.
