On April 11, 2014, Frank Edwin Guinn of Dallas, GA, died from injuries sustained after being hit while cycling on a training ride in New Orleans, LA. Frank was 36 years old.

Frank was born in Homer, Louisiana on September 27, 1977. He was the loving husband to Kimberly Murray Guinn and father to Isabelle, Alyssa, and Makenna Guinn. He was the third child, and only son, of A. L. "Poley" and Carolyn Guinn.

Frank grew up in Haynesville, Louisiana and his love of sports was a passion that started there. He played football and baseball. He was part of continuing the powerhouse that is the Haynesville Golden Tornado. He always credited his strength and understanding of teamwork to his coaches and teammates.

On September 20, 1997, Frank and Kimberly were married and began their life together.

In 1998, Frank joined the Haynesville Volunteer Fire Department, where he discovered a new passion. This passion pushed him to pursue a full-time position with the Ruston Fire Department. Eventually, Frank and Kimberly chose to move to Atlanta, GA.

Frank worked for Woodstock Fire and Clark Ambulance. In 2005, Frank found his home with City of Atlanta Fire. Frank spent many hours working with his brothers and sisters in the service to protect this city.

In 2006, his life was forever changed when he welcomed his identical triplet daughters into this world. They were the light of his eye, and he loved teaching them to shoot, ride their own bikes, and toss them high into the air.

In 2010, Frank began running with his wife, Kimberly, and found a passion for running that led to his becoming a triathlete. Some of his proudest moments included completing his very first Half Ironman in Miami and winning his division in the Early Bird Sprint Tri.

Frank was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Mona Walker Holman and Durwood Edwin Walker and his paternal grandfather Melvin Frank Guinn.

Frank is survived by his wife, Kimberly Murray Guinn; daughters, Isabelle, Alyssa, and Makenna Guinn; Parents, A.L.
