Franklin T. “Frank” Frutchey, 84, of Frederick Living, passed away on Tuesday, July 21, 2020. He was the loving husband of Janet W. (Ziegler) Frutchey, sharing 64 years of marriage together.

Born in Pen Argyl, PA, he was the son of the late Ralph P. and Elizabeth (Tonkin) Frutchey.

Frank was a 1954 graduate of East Greenville High School and worked at Red Hill Grinding Wheel and later at Stroh Brewery as a machinist, retiring in 1998.

He was a 32nd degree mason with Perkiomen Lodge No. 595 F&AM, member of both Lehigh Consistory, and the Rajah Shrine in Reading, the Owls Nest 1302 and the Teamsters Union. He also played the trombone for his high school band, the Oriental Band, and the Red Hill and Norristown Bands.

In Frank’s spare time, he enjoyed watching football and traveling. Some of his favorite spots to travel were to “house #2” in Athens PA, Colorado, London, Aruba, the Panama Canal and Canada. Most importantly, his greatest joy was his family; he was known to be a “family man” and loved spending time with his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Along with his wife, he will be greatly missed by his three children, Susan Benson and husband, Stephen of Abington, Thomas Frutchey and wife, Missy of Jacksonville, FL, and Judith Kilian and husband, Robert of Sellersville; his seven grandchildren, Drew and wife, Kelly, Brock and wife Cheryl, Devin and wife Allison, Dillon, Tanner, Casey and Ethan; two step-grandchildren, Blaise and Barett; five great-grandchildren, Mya, Gavin, Brian, Charlotte and Bradley; and his sister, Carol Gebert. And many nieces and nephews, and grand-puppy Levi. He is predeceased by a sister, Barbara Gery-Walck.

Frank will be laid to rest privately at New Goshenhoppen Cemetery in East Greenville, PA. Arrangements entrusted to Mann-Slonaker Funeral Home, East Greenville, Pa. Please offer sympathy to the family at

Dear Susan (Frutchey) Benson,
I worked with you briefly at my first position at Air Products in 1979. I remember you as a very kind person, and I'm so sorry you lost your father. Wishing you comfort and peace during this sad time and hoping your life has been filled with blessings in the past 40 years.

Susan Benson Posted at 06:21pm

Thank you, Rhonda, for your kind words. I left Air Products early in 1980 to get a job closer to where I would live when I got married, and 40 years later I still live in Abington where I have 2 sons who are both married, and I have 5 grandchildren. Thank you for reaching out, I hope you are doing well.

Dear Tom and family,
So very sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. What a wonderful, kind man he was! We have fond memories of joking and laughing with Frank and your Mom when we'd come to see you on your visits 'home' from Florida. We are sending our deepest condolences to all of you as you navigate this world without your dear husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. Heaven just got itself another angel. Hold on to your happy memories - they will comfort you in the days, weeks and months ahead. Know that we are sending prayers of healing and our deepest sympathy. Much love - Lynda and Gary Seimes
