  • Notes 
    • James Franklin Hennessee - CONYERS -

      James Franklin Hennessee, 68, died Saturday, May 31, 2008 at Hospice of Conyers after a long and hard fought battle with cancer. Born August 5, 1939 in Miami, FL, to Evelyn and Luther Hennessee, Franklin leaves Betty, his wife of thirty eight years. He also leaves his brothers and sisters, Gail Greene, Bill Hennessee (Margaret), Gary Hennessee, and Debbie Hennessee.

      While Franklin and Betty had no children, his passing is deeply felt and his memory deeply cherished by nieces and nephews, Paul Hennessee, Andrea Preston (Jeff), Gary Greene, Gary Hennessee, and Megan, Hennessee. Franklin's work and professional life was as interesting as he.

      He was a paratrooper in the U.S. Army; he worked for the FBI; he worked for the Corps of Engineers; and he worked many years overseas in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Berlin, Germany during which time he traveled extensively and became proficient in several languages. During the last twenty years Franklin owned First Software in Conyers where he designed technical systems and developed software programs for various enterprises including the 1996 Olympics.

      More recently, Franklin returned to Richmond Hill where he was a partner in TTC Waste Services. Franklin or "Jim" as he was also known, was blessed with a brilliant mind, insatiable intellectual curiosity, and a delightfully dry sense of humor, so much so that he often left one scratching ones head: "Did he really mean....?"

      Being a staunch republican and fiercely patriotic, he sometimes did. Rounding out these virtues, the most prized was his courageous, kind and generous heart. Visitation will be held 10:00 a.m., Saturday, June 28, 2008 at Carter Funeral Home, Bryan Chapel.

      Graveside service will follow at 11:00 a.m., at Richmond Hill First Baptist Church Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to Heartland Hospice Services/Conyers, 1374 Manchester Drive, Conyers, GA 30012, or Atlanta Cancer Care Foundation, 5670 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd., Suite 1100, Atlanta, GA 30342.
