Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD: Frank G. Pounds went to be with his Lord and Savior Friday, July 19, 2019 at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospice.  He was 87.
He was born December 2, 1931 in Urichsville to the late John “Felix” and Pauline (Hicks) Pounds.
A U.S. Army veteran, Frank served during the Korean War in Anchorage, Alaska as a ship rigger.  He was honorably discharged after over two years of service with the rank of Corporal.
Frank had an incredible work ethic, working with his father from a young age in the mines, mowing, painting, farming, and even in the brickyard.  After his military service he worked for Timken and the Ironworks in Galion, however, over 25 year of his career was spent at GCS Air Service as a freight supervisor.
Frank was a devoted member of Crossroads Community Church where he served as a greeter, a Go Missions volunteer, and enjoyed the bible study group.
He loved fishing, reading (especially his Bible) and working in his garden every summer.  Frank was an avid walker, often logging over 12 miles a day, and literally wore the soles off his shoes once.  Most of all Frank will be remembered for his love for the Lord, his sense of humor and his love for each and every family member. Frank’s legacy will be his commitment to family and his friendly love for fellowship.
He is survived by his wife Lynda (Kindinger) Pounds of Mansfield, whom he married October 7, 1982; six children and their spouses, Wanza (Mike) Weed of Lexington, Randa (Hal) Wagner of Crestline, Matt (Bonnie) Pounds of Lexington, Andy (Jaime) Pounds of Mansfield, John (Jill) Pounds of Mansfield, and Kory Pounds of Mansfield; their mother Virginia (Harmon) Pounds; 12 grandchildren Kevin Weed, Chris Weed, Kristen Cromer, Melanie Johnson, Matthew Johnson, Summer Lawrence, Denielle Horsley, Michael Pounds, Andrew Pounds, Jessica Pounds, Aaron Pounds, and Joshua Pounds; 8 great grandchildren; siblings Bobbie (Carol) Pounds of Dover, Joann Clouse of New Philadelphia, Doris (Bob) Miller of Newcomerstown, and Larry (Sue) Pounds of Troy.

  • We are so thankful and blessed for a phone call we got from Matt Pounds in 1999 (I think that’s right) He was looking for his Grandfathers family in Tennessee. Well he found us and the rest is history 🤗. Matt brought his Dad and Aunt Bonnie to our family reunion that year and we were privileged to get to know the rest of the family over the years of reunions and visits to Ohio ourselves!! Frank will always be remembered by us as a kind family loving man. He and Lynda always made us feel right at home when we were there. Love you all so much and will continue to pray for you. Wish we could be there with you!
    Eddie and Jewell Pounds. (LBS)

  • We share our mutual woes;
    Our mutual burdens bear;
    And often for each other flows
    The sympathizing tear.

    When we asunder part,
    It gives us inward pain;
    But we shall still be joined in heart,
    And hope to meet again.

    From sorrow, toil, and pain,
    And sin we shall be free;
    And perfect love and oneness reign
    Through all eternity.

    John Fawcett 1782

    My condolence and prayers to Matt and Bonnie, and John and Jill, and all of the Pounds family. God bless!
