Franklin ‘Frankie’ McArthur Bishop

NEW RICHMOND — Franklin “Frankie” McArthur Bishop of New Richmond went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Monday, July 22, 2013, at the age of 20.

Frankie was born on April 30, 1993, the son of Carlos Lee and Christina Dawn (Lilly) Bishop. He was a 2012 graduate of Wyoming East High School where he made friends with everyone he met.

Frankie will always be remembered for his infectious laugh. He was loved by all who knew him. His greatest gift was his personality. A love for being outdoors included football, baseball, hunting, fishing, 4-wheeling or just spending time with family and friends.

Frankie is preceded in death by grandparents Arnold Lilly, Christine Faulkner, MacArthur “Mutt” Bishop, aunts Jeanetta Ruth Torres, Anita Gail, Virginia Ann Schoeff and cousin Brian Garrison.

Surviving are his parents, Carlos and Christina Bishop, sister and brother-in-law Candi and Chad Jackson, brothers Coty and Dalton and sister Cierra Bishop. Frankie also leaves behind his “Mawmaw” Elsie Lilly, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends that love him to the heavens and beyond.

The Broken Chain

We little knew that morning that

God was going to call your name.

In life we loved you dearly

In death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,

You did not go alone;

For part of us went with you,

the day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories,

Your love is still our guide,

And though we cannot see you,

You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,

And nothing seems the same,

But as God calls us one by one,

The chain will link again.

The family will receive friends from 12 to 2 p.m. Friday, July 26, 2013, at the Rockview Pentecostal Church in Pineville with funeral services at 2 p.m., Jason Perdue officiating.

Frankie’s final resting place will be Lilly-Crews Cemetery, Nimitz, WV.

Family and friends will serve as pallbearers.

Calfee Funeral and Cremation Service of Pineville is serving the Bishop family.
