Mark Frank

Mark Francis Frank, age 63, of Saint Michael, Minnesota passed away unexpectedly on December 5, 2017. Mark was born on July 22, 1954 in Herkimer, New York. He is survived by his loving wife of nearly 30 years, Alice Frank, and his three sons; Matthew (wife Ashton), Mark (fiancée Grace Lasswell) and Alan (Drew Underdahl) as well as his older brother; Dominic, and his wife Karen Peterson. Surviving also is his Aunt Eleanor Scalise and many cousins in the Herkimer, New York area. He was proceeded in death by his parents, Dominic and Aurora Frank. Mark was a passionate, self-driven man who was followed by success in every avenue he took. But his success always took a back seat to his family and friends; you could always count on Mark to be a loving and compassionate man that put a smile on everyone’s faces once he walked into a room.

In Saint Michael, Minnesota, visitation was at Peterson Chapel of Saint Michael, Sunday December 10, 2017 and a memorial service in Mark’s honor was held on Monday December 11, 2017 at the Saint Michael Catholic Church. Interment was at St. Michael’s Catholic Cemetery which was followed by a luncheon at Saint Michael’s Catholic Church Hall. In lieu of flowers, the family requested donations be made in Mark’s memory to “The Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research.”

The family is planning to have a memorial mass for Mark in Herkimer during the spring of 2018.
