Frank Willard Breazeale, 58, of Pass Christian, died February 9, 2024, at his home.

He was born August 20, 1965, in Waynesboro, MS, to Phillip Breazeale and Peggy (Waller) Breazeale.

Frank was a US Army Paratrooper from 1986-1988 in the 82nd Airborne Division, 505th Battalion, 2nd Charlie Company. From 1988-1993, he served in the Mississippi National Guard, 624th Quartermaster Company, and was deployed to Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Shield.

He was awarded the Army Achievement Medal, Army Reserve Component Achievement Medal, National Defense Service Ribbon, Southwest Asia Service Medal, Kuwait Liberation Medal, and Army Parachute Badge. He also received the Mississippi Longevity Medal and the Mississippi War Medal.

He was a music aficionado, an avid gamer, and had achieved his lifelong dream of living carefree on his beloved MS Gulf Coast in the months preceding his death.

He received his AAS in Computer Applications from American Military University and worked as an IT Specialist/Systems Analyst for Safelite, Austal, and Windstream before retiring in 2023.

Frank is survived by his siblings, Mechelle Walker of Coker, AL, Jackson Breazeale of Philadelphia, MS, and Lyn (Patrick) Smith of Coker, AL.
