Frank Walter Tousley passed away on January 20, 2022, at the age of 73, at his home in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. He was surrounded by family who love and miss him dearly.

Frank was born on April 13, 1948, in Vancouver, Washington to Frank Granger and Evelyn Coeta (née Burris) Tousley. He had two older sisters, Opal “Kay” (Bertness) and Patricia (Naifeh), and a younger brother, Donald Tousley. In 1976, Frank married the love of his life, Janice Kay (née Crowdus), who was his partner and best friend for 45 years until his death. Frank and Janice shared their love with their three children, Christie Lynn (Smith), Allison Marie, and Frank Charles, and with their two granddaughters, Kate Smith and Ella Smith. Frank was known for his hospitality and generosity, and for this reason there are countless unofficial members of Frank’s family – notably, Christopher Hall.

Frank graduated Sapulpa High School in 1967. Beginning his career at Rock Brothers, then Harding Glass as a glazier and draftsman, Frank went on to be a successful and well- respected businessman, becoming a partner in Robinson Glass and eventually establishing Southside commercial glazing businesses which he owned and operated for over 30 years. Frank had a reputation for diligence, integrity, and excellence, both in his business and in his personal life. Frank was an avid out-doorsman. He cherished his many friendships and is both preceded in death and survived by many dear friends and hunting buddies.

All are invited to attend funeral services, which are to be held at 1:00 on Friday, January 28th at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Sapulpa, Oklahoma, as well as a celebration of life to immediately follow. The service will be officiated by Fr. Keith Fallis with the support of Smith Funeral Home. Frank will be interred at Green Hill Cemetery in Sapulpa. As Frank used to say: “If you don’t go to their funeral, they won’t come to yours.”
