Frank Paul Brysch

Frank Paul Brysch, 89 of Cordele, passed away Monday, July 15, 2019 at his residence. The funeral service will be held at 4 p.m. Friday, July 19, 2019 in the chapel of Rainey Family Funeral Services.

Frank was born in Cestohowa, Texas, the son of the late Mike Brysch and Marcyanna Moczygamba Brysch. He was also preceded in death by his brother Ernest, and his sisters, Eleanor and Mary.

A Staff Sergeant in the United States Army, Frank served four tours of duty in Korea and one in Vietnam. He shared many stories from his service including his time in the Airborne division. He recorded over 100 parachute jumps. After his military service he was employed with MCBLC in Albany for 20 years. He was an active member of Ebenezer Baptist Church. Frank loved working in his yards and old cars but his passion was flea markets and yard sales. You could always find him on a Saturday looking for treasures.

Frank is survived by his wife of 48 years, Barbara Ann Guthrie Alexander Brysch; his children, John T. Alexander, Jane Alexander White (Mike), Mac Alexander (Gerri), Linda Alexander Halliburton (Erle), Wendy Peavy, Lorey Alexander Smith (David), and Marcy Brysch Rhodes (Ritchie).
