John Walden Frame, son of William Walden and Irene Fay Miller Frame, was born, December 22, 1938 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. He departed this life, Tuesday, June 3, 2014, in his home, Camdenton, Missouri at the age of seventy-five years, five months and twelve days.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Richard Walden Frame.

John was raised in Hopkins, Missouri and later moved to Colorado where he graduated high school. He attended the University of Missouri and transferred to the Air Force Academy of Texas. He then began a twenty-year career with the United States Air Force where he served as a Petroleum, Oil and Lubrication (POL) Officer. He retired as a Major.

John and Dee moved to Washington. With no prior construction experience and with research done through books, he built them a house in the hills. They lived in their dream home and started a tree farm. In 2004, they moved to the Lake of the Ozarks.

John accepted the Lord as his savior hours before his death and peace is provided knowing he is in Heaven.

He was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Washington. He could do anything he set his mind to by doing research; both in books and the internet.
