Francis Marion "Frank" Wardlaw, Sr., 89, of 310 Murrell St., Troy, SC, very beloved husband of Carrie Lorena Langford Wardlaw, died Sunday, September 2, 2012 at his home.

Born in Troy, February 23, 1923, he was the son of the late W.W. and Annie Bradley Wardlaw.

He worked as a clerk at Cox's Store; graduated from Piedmont Technical College in one of their first HVAC classes; worked with Devore-Andrews; and retired from Cullum Electric. Frank served as the Mayor of the Town of Troy for 39 years.

A lifelong member of the Troy Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, he served as a Deacon, Elder, Sunday school Treasurer, and was designated as an Elder Emeritus of the church.

In addition to his faithful wife of 60 years, Frank is survived by five children: Karen (Dan) Ford of Crawfordville, Georgia; Elizabeth Lewis of Panama City Beach, Florida; Susan (Bil) Heath of Greenwood, SC; Frank (Becky) Wardlaw, Jr. of Honea Path, SC; Mary Jo (Dane) Colbert of New Windsor, Maryland; and nine grandchildren whom he adored. He was preceded in death by his parents and eight brothers and sisters.

A memorial service will be conducted at 2:00 PM Thursday Sept. 6, 2012 at the Troy Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church with Dr. Roy Beckham, Dr. Ray King, and Rev. John Paul Marr officiating. The family is at the home, 310 Murrell St., Troy, SC, and will receive friends in the church sanctuary immediately following the service.
