Frank Gracey Childers, age 85, of Clarksville, joined our Father in Heaven Thursday, June 6, 2024, at Saint Thomas Hospital.  

Celebration of Life will be held 10 a.m. Saturday, June 15, 2024 at First Presbyterian Church. Burial will follow at Greenwood Cemetery.

The family will receive friends on Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. at McReynolds-Nave & Larson Funeral Home and again on Saturday from 9 a.m. until the hour of service at the church.

Frank was born December 17, 1938, in Nashville, TN to the late James Glenn Childers and Frances Hardison Childers.  He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Virginia Dale Childers and their children, Glenn Childers and Elizabeth (John) Ross; grandchildren, Preston Childers, Ella Childers, Gracey Ross, and Marcus Ross.

          Mr. Childers was a graduate of Princeton University and Vanderbilt Law School.  He lived and farmed in the Sango Community most of his life and was a loving husband, father, and grandfather.  He was devoted and generous to his family and friends.  Those who knew him will remember him as a humble man with intriguing wisdom that he enjoyed sharing with others.  He was a fourth-generation member of the First Presbyterian Church downtown.
