Frank was born on April 18, 1941, in Grass Valley, Calif, but lived in Camptonville all his life. Frank was a well-known and well-loved local logger. He spent most of his life in the Camptonville area working for local saw mills and logging until he started his own business, Frank Jaynes Logging Co. and Jaynes Wholesale Florist. He retired in 2000.

The only thing he loved more than the outdoors was his love for his family. Frank loved children and had exceptional patience for them. Along with his wife Bonnie, they raised 12 children, five of their own and seven nieces and nephews. He was a kind and compassionate man who made himself available to the needs of others in his community.

He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Bonnie R Jaynes; son Dan Jaynes; daughters Tina Cooney, Tonya Tuliback and Deana Moore; six grandchildren, six great-grandchildren; brother John Jaynes; and aunts and uncles.
