Frank Daniel Bordeaux, Sr.January 9, 1940 ~ September 6, 2017 (age 77)
Mr. Frank Daniel Bordeaux, Sr., 77, of Fayetteville passed away on Wednesday, September 6, 2017.
Frank was a man born and raised in humble beginnings. Born on Hedgepath Drive in Massey Hill to two working class parents. He grew up in a time of strict morals and learned a hard work ethic that he would ingrain upon his sons.
He took on many roles from working as a bus driver as a young man, to an active role as a Fire Marshall for Fire and Rescue on Ft Bragg. Eventually he would drive across the country many times over as a long haul driver for MJ Soffe and Kimberly Clark. He would use those opportunities to take his kids on trips with him. Not due to obligation, but to share the world and it's sites with his sons.
A man of modest means, Frank was rich in friends and family who loved him dearly. He was a man who never met a stranger and always left a lasting impression on everyone he encountered no matter how brief it was. He had an unexplainable light about him that drew people to him every where he went. Frank always spoke directly and matter of fact regardless of who he was talking to. He was a man of action over direction, the type where he could show you better than he could tell you.
All in all Frank Bordeaux was a loving husband, a devoted father, and best friend to many of us. We will sit and relive the moments we shared with him while keeping his spirit alive and well. Just like Frank's life and light, his memory will always inspire and shine on all of us who knew him. Frank would have never wanted us to mourn his death, but celebrate his life.
He is survived by his wife, Debbie Bordeaux of the home; three sons, Frank Daniel "Danny" Bordeaux, Jr. of Fayetteville, Brett Matthew Bordeaux and wife, Michelle of Fayetteville and Jeremy Bordeaux and wife, Suzanna of Raeford; and one grandson, Daniel Ryan Bordeaux of Denver, Colo.
A memorial service will be held at 3 pm Sunday, September 10, 2017 in Rogers and Breece Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Tommy Underwood officiating. The family will receive friends immediately following the service.
