Francis J. “Frank” Piasecki, age 81, passed away on Wednesday, April 5, 2023, in Gaylord, MI.

Frank was born on August 4, 1941, in Gaylord, MI, to John and Carrie (Wojciechowski) Piasecki.

He graduated from St. Mary Cathedral School of Gaylord and shortly thereafter, he spent two years in the army.

Frank was an avid outdoorsman who was always hunting for morels, deer, and birds. He also loved to be by the water throwing in a fishing line. He was a Past Worthy President of The Fraternal Order of Eagles where he donated much of his time and could often be found in the kitchen on Fridays. 

Frank was also a devoted member of the Catholic Church. His Polish heritage stayed with him as he always had a polka cassette in his radio. 

Frank was preceded in death by his parents, John and Carrie; and brothers, Robert and Gerald.

He is survived by his sister Janice; four children, Kimberly (Chris) Stack of Honey Brook, Pennsylvania, John Piasecki of Gaylord, Michigan, Beth Piasecki of Traverse City, Michigan, and Kerri (Mike) O’Rourke of Gaylord, Michigan.
