Frank Lynn Crotts

Frank Lynn Crotts, 84, was born in Viola, Arkansas on November 10, 1935, to Raymond and Gladys Crotts. He was saved at an early age at Flora Baptist Church near Viola, Arkansas. He was a member of Riverdale Baptist Church in Nixa, MO. He departed this life after a short illness on November 4, 2020 surrounded by his family. Lynn was preceded in death by his parents and sisters, Lorene Crotts and Inez Steele. Lynn is survived by his wife of 50 years, Billie Crotts; his children Lynette Crotts Anthony (Mike), Jamie Fleeger (David), Raymond Crotts (Marsha), and Shelli Mabe (Brent); grandchildren Zak Boylan (Summer), Bret Boylan, Lauren Seesel (Jim), Emily Straw (Stephen), Caleb Mabe, and Abby Mabe (Diego); great grandchildren Sebastian Boylan, and Barrett Boylan. Lynn began the hard work he did all of his life at an early age. He went to Draughons Business College, later started Cleanco Company, and built and operated two motels in Branson. He sold the motels and retired in the early 2000s to his farm and family. He was a wonderful example of honesty and integrity. His work ethic was an inspiration to his family. Friends and relatives are invited to pay their respects to Lynn during Calling Hours on Thursday, November 5, 2020 at Adams Funeral Home from 9:00-4:30 P.M. A private family graveside will be held at Glenn Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Children's Hospital or Flora Cemetery Association in Viola, AR.

Lynn will be missed by everyone who knew him. I am Mike Crotts, son of Raymond and Thelma Crotts. We met many years ago when my wife Barbara and I Lived in Mtn. Home Ar. Enjoyed our visits with Lynn when stayed at your motels. Always liked being around him and catching up about family. He was such a family man. Last visit was at Inez house. He had come for a short visit and I had come to say hi to Inez. Inez worked at Baxter and I retired from there after 34 years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and family.

I would not be who I am if not for my Uncle Lynn. He not only gave me my first pony but took me to Coon Ridge to my first horse show, started me on this life of debauchery with horses. I loved the days and nights I spent with my cousin riding the woods on his farm and listening to Red pick his guitar at an fall chili cook in the evening. My heart is breaking. RJ and Lynette I love you guys so much . Katie
