Frankie Warren McGill, Sr.

November 17, 2020

Frankie Warren McGill, Sr. peacefully joined his Lord and Savior on Thursday, November 12, 2020 at University Hills Health and Rehabilitation in Pensacola, FL. He was born in Pensacola on December 10, 1951, where he resided his entire life. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Gladys McGill; brothers Richard McGill and Johnny McGill; sister Carolyn Parks; and other cherished family and friends.

Frankie’s family, extended family, and close friends were the center of his life. He was a loving son, brother, father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle, cousin, and friend. He was known as a helper – a generous and selfless provider. Naturally charismatic, he was full of both wit and wisdom. He retired from International Paper in Cantonment, where he worked for over 25 years as a highly skilled mechanic. He shared his passion for music and the outdoors with his family and friends and enjoyed escaping to his property in Walnut Hill, cast net fishing in the bay and deer hunting.

Frankie is survived by his five sons, Shawn McGill of Knoxville, TN; Jonathan Davidson (Terri) of Pensacola, FL; Kevin Cole (Melissa) of Kodak, TN; Frankie McGill, Jr. (Amanda) of Knoxville, TN; and Lonnie McGill (Alexa) of Pensacola, FL; grandchildren, Kayla Ware, Breeann Davidson, Parker Lawson, and Kyler McGill; great grandchildren, Zion, Trill, and Grace; brother Don McGill (Barbara) of Pensacola, FL; sister, Barbara Ware of Pensacola, FL; closest friends, James Milstead, James Hare, and Mike Black; and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.

Recently, with the guidance of his brother, Don, and his Pastor, Frankie accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Overjoyed and renewed by his faith, he spent significant time studying the Word and talking about Christ.

At his request, a private celebration of life will be held at a later date at his beloved Walnut Hill property. The family would like to thank University Hills Health and Rehabilitation and Faith Chapel Funeral Home of Cantonment.
