Our sympathy goes out to the family and friends of Kent "Monkey Boy" Franks, member of the Live Wire Super Modified FWD Pulling Team, who passed away. Kent was certainly a Live Wire himself and many in the pulling world and beyond have Monkey stories that bring smiles and laughter. Kent was the 2016 OSTPA Super Modified FWD Puller of the Year. He will be greatly missed by all.
There will be a Memorial Gathering at E. C. Nurre Funeral Home, 177 West Main Street, Amelia, on Thursday, July 27, from 4:00 p.m. until time of Memorial Service at 8:00 p.m. The family has asked that memorial donations be made to the OSTPA Jeff McPherson-Shawn Williams Memorial Scholarship, 811 Township Road 2850, Perrysville, OH 44864. His obituary can be found here.
Also, the family has let us know that there will be a celebration of Kent's life at the VFW Hall in Amelia around 8-11 where they would love to hear everyone's funny stories about Kent. Donations of food and drink would be much appreciaated.
