This business grew from a small garage operation to a large medical business with stores in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri. They owned and operated Home Medical Inc until retirement in 1998. During this time he was also active as a lobbyist in Washington for the home medical equipment where he positively impacted the rights of patients to be able to continue quality health care at home without having to be limited to hospital facilities.

Corley, John Franklin "Frank"

John Franklin Corley was born April 14, 1936, in Havana, Arkansas. He was the 8th of 9 children born to Claudie and Rosie Gertrude (Lovell) Corley. Frank, as most of us knew him by, left this life on March 11, 2011.

He leaves behind his wife Lois Annabelle (Smith); three children, John F. Corley, Jr. of the home, Terry and her husband, Tom Couch of Enid, Oklahoma, Edna Mae Wait of Springfield, Colorado; five grandchildren; eleven great-grandchildren; two sisters, Beulah Mae (Lewis) Spencer, Anna Lorene Robinson; and a host of other relatives and friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents, three brothers, three sisters, a grandson, and a few nephews, and many others. Frank grew up in Havana. He entered the U.S. Air Force in 1956 as an aircraft mechanic until he retired in 1982. During this time, he met and married Lois on April 14, 1957. To this marriage they had born to them three children, Terry, Edna and John, Jr. After retiring from the Air Force, with their children grown, he and Lois moved back to Arkansas. He started working for the Arkansas Forestry Service and they bought a home in Havana. He retired from the Forestry Service after about 20 years. His heart was starting to give him trouble. In 2003 Frank found out he had cancer. He beat the cancer but not without a fight. His health wasn't great and his desire to get out and visit was gone. His heart and body gave up the fight after a heart attack while fighting pneumonia. Frank was a wonderful husband, dad, grandpa, and great- grandpa. He will be missed but not forgotten. Fond memories will keep his spirit alive in our minds and hearts.

Funeral services were March 14, at Havana First Baptist Church. Arrangements are by Cornwell Funeral Home, Danville. (WWW.YellCountyObits.org,Yell County Record Newspaper, Danville, Arkansas, Obituary was published on Mar 16, 2011)
