Frank Harden Wilcoxson

d. November 15, 2023

Frank Harden Wilcoxson, 86, of Campbellsville, passed away on November 15, 2023 surrounded by family after a long and fruitful life. Frank was born on January 29, 1937 to Thurman and Sadie Sharp Wilcoxson in Black Gnat, KY. Frank graduated from Taylor County High School just before marrying his high school sweetheart, Aileen Harden Wilcoxson at the age of 17. Frank served in the Kentucky National Guard and was a faithful member and deacon at Beech Grove Baptist Church. He owned Wilcoxson Construction and enjoyed building barns for farms across the state. But his favorite work was tending the land, and he raised countless cows, donkeys, horses, pigs and—in the later years—fainting goats. He was a farmer in every sense of the word, cultivating life and growth in all sorts of places, from the fields to the Sunday school classroom. He was also an avid storyteller, a thing those who had the privilege of sitting around his kitchen table know all too well. Never one to rush to the punchline, he told tales with long pauses and a dry wit that hooked his listeners from the start and kept them on the line for—in many cases—hours on end. Most of all, Frank was an incredible husband, father and grandfather. He took immense delight in surrounding himself with his girls and their families. He spent his seven decades of marriage and more than sixty years of fatherhood showing those around him what it looked like to work joyfully and sacrifice without complaint for the good of those with whom he was entrusted. In that, he reflected the Christ who saved him and called him friend; the Christ in whose presence he now rests and rejoices. Frank was predeceased by parents and two sisters, Linda Jane Wilcoxson and Peggy Gilpin and her husband, Bobby. He is survived by his three daughters: Debbie Wilcoxson; Rhonda Rose and her husband, Jamie; and Cindy Jaggers and her husband, David. He is also survived by his grandchildren: Josh Rose and his wife, Lauren; Morgan Cox and her husband, Taylor; Weston Dicken and his wife, Lauren; Madison Mahairas and her husband Anthony; Jason Jaggers and his wife, Candace; Tyler Jaggers and Chelsea Branham; and Presleigh Fadida and her husband Oshri. His great-grandchildren Lilly Claire, Oliver, Warren, Ellender, Canon, Kensley and Kip were his pride and joy. He loved nothing more than looking out the kitchen window to see them running down the hill for a visit. Visitation will be held at Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home on Saturday, November 18 from 5:00-8:00 PM. Funeral services will follow on Sunday at 2:00PM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Beech Grove Baptist Church and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
