May 27, 1957 — July 21, 2022

Goodlettsville

Frank “Frankie Jr.” Louis Resha, Jr. passed away at his home on Thursday, July 21, 2022. Born May 27, 1957 in Wayne, Michigan he was the son of Betty Joe Lackey Resha and the late Frank L. Resha, Sr. Raised and educated in the Bordeaux section of Nashville and later Goodlettsville he attended Goodlettsville Middle School and graduated from the former Goodlettsville High School with the class of 1975. He later served an apprenticeship and progressed through the ranks to become a Master Plumber. Frankie had worked at Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he developed a strong connection and sense of family with many of the other employees. He thought of them as extended family and he truly loved his job there. As a young man he loved to fish and enjoyed motorcycling. For some 20 years, he owned and operated his own transmission shop. Another aspect of his interest was his love of all things cars. Whether he was cleaning them, fixing them, buying or selling, Frankie loved it all. He enjoyed yardwork and took pride in his lawn. He was known for bringing joy and laughter to his family and friends. Often times, his humor was without a filter but he would certainly make others laugh. More than anything he was a simple man who loved his family deeply. He also loved his dogs; Harley his always present companion, and Harbie. Frankie is survived by his wife, Paulette Allen Resha; his daughters, Krysta Resha Henson (David) and Kesley Resha Herrman (Rob); his grandson, Payton Resha; his best friend and “brother”, Roger Stroud; his mother, Betty Joe Resha; sisters, Sherry Resha, Crystal Resha, Donna Wright; his special sister, Brenda Gail; and numerous friends.

A Life Celebration Service will be held at Cole & Garrett, Tuesday at 12 noon followed by interment at Forest Lawn Cemetery.
