Gordon Terry Frank

Feb. 5, 1939 - Sept. 15, 2023

Terry Frank passed away Sept. 15, 2023 at the VA Hospital in Minneapolis with his loving wife Sharon by his side. He is survived by his wife, Sharon Frank; son, Eric Frank and wife Tammy; daughter, Kristine Elias and husband Mike; and granddaughter, Hannah Elias and her partner, Brian Kelly.

Terry will be remembered for his generous spirit, curious mind, and passion for the natural world. He was a most loving and caring husband, father and grandfather, compassionate friend, and encouraging mentor-always willing to listen and give advice. He was happiest outdoors exploring the woods, planting trees, watching birds, fishing for crappies, chopping firewood. He enjoyed music, art, food, and travel, making the most of everyday he was given. Most of all he loved the people in his life and was very grateful for their love and friendship.

We will miss him terribly and take comfort in our many wonderful memories of this amazing man. We are grateful to our family and friends for the support and kindness they've shown during this difficult time. We are especially thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff of the VA hospice unit for their excellent care during Terry's final days.

Please join us for a celebration of Terry's life on Sunday, Oct. 8, noon - 3 p.m. at the Regency condominiums, 2265 Youngman Ave., St. Paul, 55116 in the first-floor party room.
