Frank Sherman Worthington, 72, of Grand View, died Monday, April 23, 2007, at the home of his daughter, Fay, where he was being cared for.

At his request, private family services will be held in Kamiah at a later date. His wish was to be put near his favorite fishing hole, where he enjoyed many hours of fishing. Cremation is under the direction of Rost Funeral Home, McMurtrey Chapel.

Frank was born to Clarence and Sylvia Worthington in St. Paul, Alberta, Canada, on April 25, 1934. At the age of 17 his family moved to Kamiah, Idaho, where he resided and worked in the surrounding area for many years.

He worked mostly in construction but dabbled in recycling and many other trades.

Frank served in the US Army during the Korean War.

In 1991 he moved to Mountain Home where he had a siding business and in 1999 he moved to Grand View and lived there until his passing.

Frank loved to fish, hunt and tell jokes, his family said. "In his many adventures he made many friends and cherished each one."

Frank is survived by: three daughters, Sylvia Dees of Georgia, and Patricia Zaragoza and Fay Zaragoza both of Grand View; one son, Clarence Worthington of Texas, nine grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, two nephews, three nieces and several grandnieces and grandnephews as well as several great-grand nieces and great-grand nephews.
