Frank B. McCann - Stanley C. Campbell

Frank B. McCann, 85, passed away peacefully in his sleep Jan. 5, 2006, in Kingman. He was born July 19, 1920, in Kansas City, Mo., to Frank R. and Delilah Jane McCann. He was raised in Monmouth, Ill., attending grade school and junior high there, but graduated from Springfield, Ill., High School. Immediately following Pearl Harbor, he joined the U.S. Army and was sent overseas to the European Theatre. While in the service and on leave, he married Mary Louise Overholser from Monmouth, Ill., on Feb. 27, 1943. They had met a few years previously. Frank was wounded in Germany and sent home to recuperate in various Army hospitals until his discharge in late 1945. He earned five battle stars, and was a technical (platoon) sergeant. After discharge, he came back to Monmouth and became and Illinois State Trooper.

In 1950, their son, Scott, was born and was welcomed into their union. In 1957, they all came to sunny Arizona and settled in Kingman, where Frank went to work for Ford Motor Proving Grounds, Yucca, where he stayed for 23 years. He retired in 1980.

Frank enjoyed the friendships he made while working at Ford, loved the desert, panning for gold, collecting guns, and hunting with his grandsons.

Frank was a member of American Legion Post #136 and also 40/8 in Monmouth, Ill., Kingman Lodge #22, F.&A.M., Royal Arch Mason, Scottish Rite, Cryptic Mason, and Life-member of Kingman Elks Club, recently receiving his 60-year pin.

He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Mary Louise (M.L.), his son, Scott and his wife, Sharon, their sons, Corey Grasser and Nick McCann, also numerous distant relatives all out of state. He was predeceased by all immediate family ­ his mother, father, sister, Lucille, and brother, Gordon.

It was Frank's wish to be cremated with no services. His ashes will be scattered at a later time.

He was unconditionally loved by his family, and will be dearly missed, but not forgotten.

Stan loved his family and friends. He enjoyed reading and ranching. He retired from his job at Arizona Ford Proving Grounds in 2003, where he made some very good friends.

He is survived by his wife, Evelyn Campbell, and his six children: sons, Dale, Calvin, Kyle and Ryan Campbell, and daughters, Karen Shorter and Shelley Campbell.
