Frank Stirling, 62, passed away on Saturday, October 16, 2021. A Celebration of Life will be held on Tuesday, November 9th at 11:00 AM in the Rose Room Chapel at Croxford Funeral Home.
Frank was served in Quality Life Concepts programs for many years in his life. Frank was an amazing person who was extraordinarily independent despite his sensory challenges. Frank was able to navigate his home using skills he learned at the School for the Deaf and Blind and the Helen Keller institute. He was proficient at reading braille, signing, and selecting new items he wanted through sensory manipulation. Frank had a sweet tooth and looked forward to his flavored coffee and candies. He was very proud of his cappuccino machine and had specific favorites when it came to his coffee! Frank had a wonderful sense of humor. His knack at getting folks to do as he requested was truly fun to watch. Frank also had a mischievous side he delighted in using when engaging with others. He would often remind support staff that he did not like his new socks, bedding or clothing by promptly shredding items brought into his home he did not care for. Frank was proficient at ensuring his bedroom was in tip top shape according to his liking.
Frank never left his home without making his bed and straightening up his bedroom. Frank was kind and gentle with his friends and support staff. He did have specific favorite people in his life and would often laugh out loud when those people were in his company. Frank loved the sunshine and often enjoyed trips to local parks and events that took him out into the sun. Frank loved to feed the ducks at Gibson Pond and would giggle when he knew we had arrived at the duck pond. Frank will be very missed by the many people he met in his life. Frank was a true inspiration for those fortunate enough to have known him. His positive outlook despite all the challenges he faced in his life, was truly amazing to observe. Rest in peace dear Frank!
