Franklin Wofford McGill died on Sunday, February 15, 2009. Frank was a beloved son, brother and friend to many. He was born in Austin, Texas on December 6, 1988 to Charmaine Denius McGill and J. Gordon McGill. Survivors include: his parents, Charmaine Denius McGill and J. Gordon McGill of Austin; his brother, G. Parker McGill, of Dallas; his grandparents, Charmaine and Frank W. Denius of Austin, and Mrs. Ruth Gordon McGill of Bryan; his aunt Ruth G. McGill, M.D. of Bryan, his maternal aunt and uncle, Beth and F. Wofford Denius of Los Angeles, California; and his cousin, Reagan Denius of Los Angeles, California. He also leaves behind a multitude of beloved friends. Frank attended Saint Andrew's Episcopal School in Austin from first grade until he graduated from Middle School in 2003. He then went on to graduate high school from The Hyde School in Bath, Maine in 2007, where he was an avid sportsman, football, basketball, and lacrosse player. Frank loved being outdoors and in the wilderness. Frank's life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by him understood that his life's experiences gave him a wisdom far beyond his years. Kind and thoughtful, Frank had a gift for knowing what people needed in troubled times and he willingly and gracefully shared his hard-earned wisdom in times of need. Frank will be missed every day by his family and friends and we say to Frankie, as one smart bear once said … "If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you." – Winnie the Pooh. A memorial service will be held for Frank at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd, 3201 Windsor Road, Austin, Texas, at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 21, 2009. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Saint Andrew's Episcopal School or to the Hyde School in Bath, Maine in Frank's memory.
