Private Services

Lowell "Ben" Franklin

February 21, 1934 - March 11, 2020

Beloved Husband, Dad and Grandpa

Age 86, of Shoreview, passed peacefully on March 11, 2020.

 

Preceded in death by son, Jim; and son-in-law, Dick Tein.

 

Survived by loving wife of 63 years, Bobbie; sons, Mike (Terri), Dan (Julie); daughters, Mary Jo Tein, Ann Marie (Tim) Robbie, Geralyn Franklin; and 11 grandchildren.

 

Due to the current circumstances, all previously published public services will be private. We know your thoughts and prayers will be heard.

 

A special thanks to the staff at The Benedictine Health Ctr. at Innsbruck for their compassionate care.

 

Ben taught all of us a great deal about dignity, grace, kindness and compassion. We will miss him tremendously.

 

In lieu of flowers, memorials should be directed to Little Sisters of the Poor or Christo Rey High School.
