Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Robert “Bob” Glenn Frankwick, 75, of Concord, NC passed away on Friday May 15, 2015 at the Tucker Hospice House in Kannapolis, NC. Mr. Frankwick was born on September 07, 1939 in Marshfield, Wisconsin to the late Glenn Frankwick and Margaret Krainz.
Bob worked in Insurance for many years before moving into banking and before retiring. He was a member of Tall Clubs International and received the Tall Clubs International Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998 for recognition of his outstanding achievements. The College Scholarship Fund was especially dear to his heart. Bob enjoyed fishing, being outdoors, going to theaters, and was a science and history buff. He took great pride in his home in Concord and cabin in the mountains. Both of which were certified Natural Backyard Wildlife Habitats for birds and small animals.
He and his wife were blessed to travel the world and always made it a point to go to the museums of the area. He was also a NASCAR fan.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by a step-father, John Dale; a brother, Jimmy Frankwick; a sister, Joanne Frankwick; and a brother-in-law, Bob Tockstein.
He is survived by his wife of 16 years, Leslie Frankwick of Concord; a son, Kenneth Frankwick and wife Karen Kenny of Vannuys, CA; a daughter, Dr. Dawn Frankwick and husband Samuel Zeiler of Seattle, WA; a sister, Rose Anne Tockstein of Sun City, AZ; grandchildren, Sean Frankwick, Neil Frankwick, Ryan Woodlock, Connor Woodlock, Alyssa Woodlock, Reagan Wallace, and Tyler Wallace; and a niece, Monika Figueiredo and husband JC of New Jersey.
Bob was also very proud his grandchildren, Sean and Neil who achieved Eagle Scouts status. He proudly displayed the bumper sticker Ken and Karen gave him, on his truck saying, “I’m proud of my Eagle Scouts”. He always said he moved from California to be with Leslie in New Jersey and when Ryan was born, they moved to No. Carolina. He closely followed Connor and Alyssa’s basketball games and Reagan’s volleyball tournaments. He and Tyler shared their mutual love of NASCAR and anything scientific. Finally, his cat Boots is wondering when the big fella with the warm lap is coming home.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date in June.
