Robert A. Franze, 56

Rob’s guardian angel came down and surrounded him and carried him to the Heavens on Sunday November 19, 2017.

Rob loved his wife Loreekay so much he carved his love in stone, and his daughter Leah, who he would have moved the world for. This certainty gives them both comfort and strength.

Born August 11, 1961, Rob has rejoined his father Anthony who met him with open arms at heaven’s gate. Robs new wings also surround his mother, Shirley Piper Franze and brother, Randy.

He enjoyed the Steelers and working on cars. Rob also enjoyed camping and going hunting in the mountains, where he manned the base camp. He loved to drive his truck and motorcycle and golf.

Rob worked for Amerikohl Mining for the past 21 years. He was a member of the Eagles, SOI, and Hungarian Home Clubs in Ellwood City.

Friends and family will gather to celebrate Rob’s life on Friday November 24 from 5:30 until the time of the memorial service at 7 pm at the Marshall Funeral Home 200 Fountain Ave. Ellwood City.
