Franklin “Frankie” Eugene Waters, Age 65, of Brevard went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, March 6, 2021 at AnMed Medical Center in Anderson, SC. A native of Henderson County, he had resided in Brevard for the past 41 years. Frankie was a son of the late Lewis and Lou Ann Waters. He was also preceded in death by his daughter, Danesia Miller and sister, Aretha Cannon.

Frankie was a graduate of Edneyville High School and went on to serve in the United States Army as part of the 42nd Airborne, following graduation. He had worked as a maintenance journeyman for Bildon, Imoco, Ecusta and PH Gladfelter. He grew up in Blue Ridge Baptist Church in his youth and was a member of the Brevard Bass Anglers group. Frankie had a love for fishing, hunting, and farming. He sold produce at the Farmers Market, where he will be greatly missed, and had helped his father and uncle on the farm for many years. He enjoyed cutting up with people and was a genuinely fun-loving person. Frankie was a great husband, wonderful dad, and an awesome grandfather, brother, and confidant to many. He was a man of many talents and was a superhero to his family.
