Franklin L. Chapel, 81, of Youngsville, Pa, passed away on March 18, 2021 at Warren General Hospital.

He was born on June 30, 1939 in Warren, Pa, a son to the late Berton and Charlotte (Montague) Chapel. Franklin was in the National Guard for 4 years. He retired in 2001 after 34 years at United Refining Company. He was the “dog whisperer”, as he had a love for dogs. He enjoyed motorcycles, hunting and fishing, but most of all, spending time with his family.

He is survived by his children, Lynn (David) Finlan of Starbrick, Melanie (David) Brush of Warriors Mark, Pa and Berton Chapel of Irvine; his sister, Alice Weaver of Johnstown, Pa; 3 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, Franklin was preceded in death by his wife, V. Renee Hodges Chapel, whom he married on Sept. 13, 1958 at the Youngsville EUB Church; his sisters Virginia Strom, Ruby Wilcox, Ruth Graham, Ellen Temple, Bonnie Higginbotham and a daughter-in-law, Marie Chapel.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 27, 2021 at the Nelson Funeral Home and Cremation Services at 11am with the Rev. Rick Hamrick officiating. There will be 1 hour of visitation prior to the service. Burial will take place in the Youngsville Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggest memorial donations may be made to Paws Along the River Humane Society, 212 Elm Street, Warren, Pa 16365.
