Who Did Not Sign The Constitution: Ben Franklin?

Okay so I'm doing a biographical essay for school and I just want some concrete details or some background about Benjamin Franklin.
There were people who actually went to the constitutional convention. But some people didn't sign The Constitution, why? I think Ben Franklin was one of the members who didn't sign.
Why did Benjamin Franklin not sign the US Constitution?

A lot of people considered "founding fathers" did not sign the Constitution.
Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Patrick Henry....
Samuel Adams, John Hancock...

The list could go on....

The "Founding Fathers" as originally described by Harding were those that participated as patriots in the American Revolution. That is a pretty broad description that you are trying to apply to 39 signatories of the Constitution.

Jefferson, Adams were in Europe at the time of signing. as was Franklin I'm sure other did not sign as well.
Some people say he did but I don't know for sure.

Of course Benjamin Franklin signed; he was a "Founding Father!" He was one of the Constitution's strongest supporters and he was a Federalist. There's some free info for your report, "Work." Good luck with your report!

Incidentally, Ben Franklin is the only person to have signed ALL THREE founding documents of the US: the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and Treaty of Paris.
