Frank Sartin Jr Obituary

Frank Sartin, Jr., was born in Chicago, Illinois, on Monday, August 17, 1959, beloved son of the late Frank Sartin, Sr., and Earlene Henry. Frank accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior at an early age and was baptized. Later in life, he joined and became a member of the Lighthouse Church of All Nations, under Pastor Dan Willis. Frank attended Simeon Vocational High School and continued his education serving in the United States Army. Frank was a Private, stationed in Fort Dix, New Jersey. During his tour of duty, Frank was awarded a commendation for Marksmanship with a M16. Frank was met with and overcame many obstacles in his life. Through all of his trials and tribulations, he never wavered in his faith. Frank loved God and never shied away from professing his love for God. He was a bible scholar, in his own right. Frank loved and appreciated every moment of life. His impeccable GQ style of dressing was undeniably on point. From his hat to his shoes, he always appeared to have just stepped out of a fashion magazine. If you had the distinct pleasure of knowing Frank, you were truly blessed. His heart of gold and his infectious smile could turn your whole world around. Frank never met a stranger. He was definitely blessed with the “Gift of Gab!” Whether he was debating political concerns with high ranking politicians or someone he just met, his conversations were always heartfelt. Frank was known by several names; his family endearingly called him “Pokey,” and his fellow tenants where he lived in the Rosenwald Courts Apartments referred to him as “Mr. Rosenwald.” But, if you really knew him well and wanted to get the biggest brightest smile from him, you called him “Frank Rickadelli.” Frank loved mentoring young men and women. He would often share some of his life stories with them, so they could understand that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and they too can turn their lives around. Because of this love, Frank co-created with LaVont’e Stewart, Sr. the “School of Hard Knocks/Lost Boyz, Inc.” organization; the motto was “Being Aware is Being Alive.” Frank was employed as office manager for “Lost Boyz, Inc.,” where he worked diligently with LaVont’e. Frank has left his mark on many hearts. He leaves us with so many joyful thoughts and memories. He was a faithful, dedicated, and distinguished man. He was and is an inspiration to all that knew him. Frank was preceded in death by his step-mother, Ella Perkins; brother, Willie Leggs; and sister, Lenora Perkins. Frank leaves to cherish his memory: his brothers, Alex Perkins (Antonia), Joseph Williams (Brenda), Eddie Perkins (Juanita), Elroy Perkins (Cheri), Aaron Perkins (Dorthea), and Dante Perkins (Towanda);; sisters, Angel Pilarski (Jim), Qutester Perkins, Laura Rush (John), Josephine Perkins, Kimball Terrell (Derrick), and Lois Perkins (Darrell); special cousins, Angela D. Peacock (Craig) and Anita Maney; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
