Frank Runyon Remembered

Clarksville lawyer and former state representative Frank Jasper Runyon II, who died this week, is remembered by family and friends as a kind-hearted gentleman who loved being a lawyer. “He very much enjoyed being a lawyer. I heard certain phrases, all of my life. Such as 'when I cannot even see the other side of the case, that is a problem,' indicating that a lawyer must have the ability to at least try to understand alternative theories of every case,” J. Runyon III said. "As a lawyer he was always well prepared,” Judge Ray Grimes said. “He was one of the most well-organized lawyers I’ve ever known.” Ray Runyon said “Every case was important to him, every person that walked through the door was important.”  The Leaf Chronicle has more.
