Frank Latham Dies

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Frank Latham, a man known for his charity and his cooking, has died. Latham owned and operated "Frank's World Famous Biscuits" in downtown Jackson for many years.

He later moved to Mikhail's Northgate before retiring.

Latham always had a crowd at lunchtime, but his busiest days often were holidays, when he would feed hundreds of homeless or needy Jackson-area families.

His biscuits and his generosity got NBC's attention, and he was once featured on the "Today" show.

Frank Latham was 75 years old.
