Frank was born on January 5, 1927, to the late Frank & Alfreda Grimske in Flint, MI. He attended Flint Northern High School. He married the love of his life Lois Fredberg on June 20, 1951, and together they celebrated 70 years in marriage before her passing in 2021. He proudly served his country in the United States Army during WWII. Upon his discharge from the military Frank continued his education at Valparaiso University where he earned his bachelor's degree. Frank was employed with General Motors for over 35 years before retiring in 1987.
Frank stayed an active individual his whole life. Well into his 80's he played softball and in his 90's he was still golfing. He absolutely loved all things sports; he was a gifted athlete his whole life. He followed many sports teams, but his favorite was Michigan. He was financially savvy and taught himself business and investing strategy.
He was a lifelong member to St. Paul Lutheran Church where he served as both an usher and elder and as one would guess he played on the church's softball and volleyball leagues.
Frank is survived by his children, Susan (Robert) Kai, Timothy (Valerie) Grimske, Carol (Dana) Bush and Fredric (Tammy) Grimske; grandchildren, Marc Kai M.D., Andrew (Stephanie) Bush, Steven (fiancé Sarah) Bush, Dominic (Courtney) Grimske and McKenna Grimske. great-grandchildren, Emmy, Drew, Isla, Avery, Lucas, and Izzy; his sister, Marion and many nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his late wife, Lois; his grandson, Erich and son-in-law, Fouad.
Frank's family would like to express their appreciation to the staff of Woodhaven, Heart to Heart Hospice, the nurses of McLaren Hospital and Dr. M. Perez-Pascual for the compassionate care given to Frank and his family. His family would also like to thank Judy.
