Frank was born Jan. 13, 1932, in Portland, Ore., and was raised by Aunt Cora Crawford in Spokane. In 1952 Frank entered the United States Army and proudly served our country for 21 years with tours of duty in Korea and Vietnam wars. A purple heart was awarded to Frank for an injury in Vietnam. Frank met his wife, Mary Jane at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico and married in June 1961, spending 47 wonderful years together.

Bratten of Fairbanks, Alaska and Betsy J. and Raymond Pecka of Moses Lake. Also surviving are five grandsons, Frank Pecka, George Pecka, Sam Bratten, Jacob Rankin and Dylan Rankin.
