quite simply put the guy is a legend, and ppl talk about legends. you dont quite seem to understand the sheer level of cult status that frank has gotten that literally ranks in the thousands... worldwide. so yes he is still talked about in the vast expanse of the internet, and he is missed.

If YOU "know" so much about him and that he is a legend..... Then why do you need to get on this
stupid site for people to talk trash about him. I just think if you have ANY respect for him you would you not put his name out there! Your just begging for someone to be negative about him!

The person you are replying to did not make the original post for this thread, I did. You can't blame them. But the comment that person made I could not have said better myself. I certainly did not come to this site for people to trash talk him and I do not know so much about him. I only know Frank as the "legend".
There has been quite a bit of talk lately around the globe about him on the internet from here in the US to England, Ireland, Eastern Eourpe, Portugal, heck even Afganistan of all places. Many people see him as an icon and a great many are regretful of the sheer volume of calls he got and how it got out of control. And for some time we have been curious as to Frank the man, not the legend. It was not intended to trash him on this site, we love him and think his brazen defiance in the face of adversity is awesome.
I started this thread in the sheer hope for people who knew him to make a comment about him/ his life so we can better understand him. I am only one of a great many. None of us mean offence to Frank. His fans are legion.

He is by far the most famous person Stilwell has ever produced.

I would seriously like to talk about the life of Frank Garrett if anyone has anything to offer. I for one, among others think Frank was a man with a great spirit and am curious about how he lived. Can anyone in Stilwell describe him?

A sorry bas*tard who was a dope dealing, moonshine selling, pimp.

The garrett name is enough to to descripe the thing that was suppose to be a man.

And like manuel neal, he will have a hard time resting in peace on a bed of hot coals.

Who was he? I only knew him as the guy that owned the business across town and the house down the highway. So why is he a legend? Please explain cuz I have no clue. Sorry. Not here for bashing him just would like to know since people knew him in Europe.

I knew Frank, really well. And I can tell you that the last few years of his life, people tortured him for sport. Who ever you are - where ever you are, you made him angry and harassed him on a daily basis - you tried to make a fool of him. You are disgusting for even asking about him - its like you are trying to harass him in death as well. Get a life. Frank would tell you to go to hell.

Frank is a legend because for years he recieved an entire series of prank calls, mostly by people using soundboards. These calls were recorded and placed on various sites including youtube. In fact, go to youtube and look up "original calls to Duncan" for a bigger picture.
Franks "im not gonna take it" attitude and his extreme comebacks made him an internet celebrity and people all over the world grew to love him. Sadly, it got to a point when people everywhere were calling him and even a soundboard had been made out of him to call others, still to this day.
The fact is that Frank is missed by many who truly idolize him. There has been quite a bit of talk of him lately a little more than a year after his death and many are simply curious as to his life and how he lived it. So we turn to the good people of Stilwell for answers.

Hmm, dont know why this has been double posting for me today, but hey not my fault.
In response to your post Slim you say I made him angry and harassed him so please allow me to make one thing perfectly clear, I have never called Frank. Not even once in my life. True, many have and granted it went way too far. Regardless that is not the point of this post. The point is that many have been talking about him as of late and he is a man whoby his fans, myself included is truly missed. It is only natural that many are curious as to his life and how he lived it. You say it is disgusting for me to ask, but we believe that not to ask is a disservice to him. So naturally, we turn to those that knew him for comment.

That don't sound good to me! To be know for stupid prank calls! That's just rude and disrespectful! Why would he be a celebrity for that! People harassing him and him having the go to hell attitude? Well that don't sound like a good reason to me! Not even! He might have been a good man or maybe not. I don't know because I didn't know him. What ever he was that gives no one a reason to prank call him or any one else. That's just flat WRONG!

No offence Bex, but you dont seem to get it. Its not about the prank calls (well it is but it isnt) its about how a man can put with adverisity for years on end, and laugh in its face. Frank didnt harass anyone he was a victim who refused to be a victim. And thats what its really all about.

No I guess I don't get IT. You said he was a victim. Yes, that's what it sounds like to me. People prank calling him or anyone for that matter are thoughtless and rude! Unfortunate for Frank people posted it on the net. The Internet is an awesome invention but, it's used way too much to ridicule people. Yes so I don't GET IT AT ALL!!! So thanx for da info.

Im not sure your going to get any help on here. I use to live in Stilwell. I still have family there and will ask around for you. I dont believe you are being disrespectful, but alot of the people of Stilwell are in constant defense mode.

Not being defensive. Just stating a fact. I didn't know the man. What I get outta your posts is he was famous due to be fact that people made fun of him! So yea forgive me for being ignorant but, that don't sound like something to be proud of.
