Obituary for Wade Andrew Frank

Wade Andrew Frank began bringing smiles to this earth when he was born to Andrew and Mary on November 26, 1963. From that moment on, he never ceased passionately pursuing that which would better him while delivering joy to others.

Following a childhood spent laughing and growing with his twin, Mark, and siblings Lynn, Gail and Drew, Wade offered his service to his country and joined the Marines. There, he developed a code of conduct that served as a personal guide while picking up a new language � filled with sound-offs and guttural grunts � that reemerged at seemingly strange times to the delight of his children.

Upon completion of his service, Wade began his family life, raising three children into adulthood all while juggling the demands of helping to run a growing and thriving family business. Lorri, Erica and Jordon remember their father as a fair man whose infectious smile brought a light to any room that couldn�t be missed. His selfless dedication to their development was unwavering, even as a single parent.

Over the years, Wade�s hobbies included golf, working out, biking and running. His quick-witted jokes elicited laughter while his even-quicker puns brought on groans. Wade was a generous soul who worked tirelessly to provide the best for his family while securing their future.

Wade passed away on October 3, 2009, at the age of 45. His passion for every personal endeavor will not be forgotten, and commitment and caring for his family will live on in those present here today.

Wade is survived by his parents Andrew and Mary Frank; beloved children, Lorri (Alex) Clark, Erica (Devon) Stanforth, Jordon Frank, and their mother Nancy D. Frank; siblings Drew (Kris) Frank, Gail (Richard) Eikelenboom, Lynn (Ali) Razavi, and Mark (Laurie) Frank. Wade is also survived by 8 nieces and nephews, many extended family members and dear friends.
