Freeport, Grand Bahama - Today the entertainment industry recorded the loss another giant. Franklyn 'Frankie' Lightbourne, guitarist extraordinaire, singer and all around nice guy.

Having performed on many stages with local and world renowned performing artists from Smokey 007 to Teddy Pendergrass, and giving his life to the entertainment industry, Frankie was always a constant professional. Always on time, never un-prepared, and always willing to go the extra mile to share his talent. The entertainment community and those that heard his music, will truly miss this "Man among Men."

I would like to salute his family and thank them for lending us Frankie, his talents, time and spirit, and for being patient with him as he bore us on his shoulders artistically and emotionally. There are so many good things to be said about Frankie's  legacy of love and music.

On behalf of the members of the entertainment community, and all those that loved and enjoyed Frankie I would like to offer condolences to his family and friends.

We feel and acknowledge your loss.

With a heavy heart,

Nat Cambridge
