After a life full of honor and faithful service performed, Rev. Franklin P. Doty has been called to the award of his devotion and loyalty to his mission.
Born in New Jersey eighty-one years ago, Mr. Doty became a Methodist minister fifty-six years ago; and for more than half a century held many pastorates in the Wyoming Conference, four of them in Scranton, and three others in localities near Scranton, ending before his retirement at the West Park Church.
As long as most people remember, Franklin P. Doty’s name has been synonymous with religion, the clergy, the Church of God; for his devotion, eloquence, lofty ideals, rare thoughtfulness. Few are the citizens who have been more widely known, few more beloved than the venerable preacher who has just passed away. His memory will be honored.
