February 8, 1950 - October 23, 2016
Henry Franklin Tripp
Frank was born February 8, 1950 in Odessa, Texas and passed away on October 23, 2016.
After graduating from Odessa High School, Frank obtained his undergraduate degree from TCU and then earned his Juris Doctorate at SMU. He worked in the legal department for Fina Oil & Chemical Company for over 20 years where he made numerous friends before he started his own practice.
Frank is survived by his two sons, Hunter and Zachary, sister Sandra Jacobs, sister Rita Morgan and husband George Morgan, and sister Linda Kulasik. He is also survived by his nephew Jeffrey Jacobs and wife Rebecca Jacobs, niece Debra English and husband Jon English, and niece Lee Ann Alspaw and husband Joel Alspaw. He is preceded in death by his parents Thalia and Lea Tripp.
Frank’s wit and sense of humor made him easy to love. His intelligence and perspective made him a natural source of counsel. He taught his values of honesty, integrity and compassion to Hunter and Zach. We are deeply saddened that he left us, however we are thankful that he has found ultimate peace.
In lieu of flowers, the family wishes for contributions to be made to the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network’s (www.bcan.org) efforts towards fighting bladder cancer or to The Caring Fund at Presbyterian Village North.
