Obituary of Francis Bartholomew McLean

Francis "Frank" Bartholomew McLean passed away on Thursday, May 16, 2019 at Novant Presbyterian Medical Center. He is survived by his loving parents, Carson and Ellen McLean; big brother Davy and little brother Lewis; paternal grandparents, Tom and Jannifer McLean; maternal grandparents, Jim and Judy Berlucchi; and many adoring aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.


Frank was born on June 14, 2017 in Charlotte, North Carolina. He attended St. Martin's Episcopal Preschool and was an active member of the toddler class. He never turned down a snack or a swing; loved parks, bouncy balls, dogs, and all of life's simple pleasures. He is missed beyond belief.


Visitation will be held on Saturday, May 25, 2019 from 9:00 am-10:15 am at The Cathedral of St. Patrick, 1621 Dilworth Road East, Charlotte, NC 28203, followed by the funeral mass beginning at 10:30 am. To celebrate Frank’s life, the family requests white or colorful attire.


Burial will take place in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Arrangements, when finalized, will be posted.
