Franklin Leroy Trollinger

Franklin (Tooter) Leroy Trollinger

Frank Leroy Trollinger, 76, of Siloam Springs, Arkansas passed away at the Circle Of Life Hospice in Springdale, AR on January 1, 2022.

Frank was born on July 30, 1946 in Fayetteville AR to Louis and Clara Trollinger. He married the love of his life Linda Trollinger on January 10, 1975 in Fayetteville. For many years and many millions of miles he spent behind the steering wheel of an 18 wheeler. He was a great provider for his family even if it meant missing a lot of family function. But soon as he was home you had every minute and every second of his time. He drove for 50 years and spent 30 years of that with Wal-Mart Transportation. After retiring you would find him on Grand Lake with a fishing pole in his hands catching anything that would bite. He loved to go hunting with his son and grandsons. Don’t forget those grandbabies and great grandbabies that brought so much joy and love to his heart. He now has a silver boat that sparkles, a rod and reel made of gold, and the fish will always bite.

He was preceded in death by his parents Louis and Clara Trollinger, one son Harold
Happy, Brother James Trollinger and in-law John and Cledith Hudson.

He is survived by his wife of 46 years Linda Trollinger of the home: Son Paul Happy and Wife Marla of Gentry, Ar: one Daughter Karla Happy and husband Scott Martin of Springdale, Ar. Daughter-in-law, Candi Happy of Colcord, OK. 3 Grandson’s Kenley Happy and wife Amelia of Wichita Falls, Tx and Jonathan Happy of Gentry, Ar and Cody Harrelson and wife Alexis of Springdale, Ar. 3 Granddaughters Briana Horne and husband Weston of Hot Springs, Ar , Keely Harrelson of Springdale, Ar and Taleah Harrelson and Ethan Murphree of Springdale, Ar. As well as 3 bonus grandchildren; Sabra, Brittany, and Morgan. 5 Great Grandchildren; Hannah Happy, Stella Ferguson, Carter Harrelson, Henry Happy, Lincoln Horne. Brothers Joe Trollinger and wife Debra of West Siloam Springs Ok; Johnny Trollinger, Ronnie Trollinger, Twin sisters; Marilyn and Carolyn and Three half brothers; Pete, John, and Lee.

Visitations will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 on Friday January 7, 2022. The service will take
place on Saturday January 8, 2022 at 2 p.m at the Backstrom-Pyeatte Funeral Home at 1401 E Main Street, Siloam Springs, Ar, 72761. He will be laid to rest at the Johnson Cemetery in West Siloam Springs, Ok.
