Roy J. Fraundorf, 87
Oct. 28, 1927 -- April 9, 2015
Roy J. Fraundorf, “Froggy,” age 87 of Hartford, passed away peacefully on Thursday, April 9, 2015, at the Pavilion at Glacier Valley in Slinger. He was born on Oct. 28, 1927, in Milwaukee to the late Hugo J. and Caroline H. (nee Schmidt) Fraundorf. He served in the United States Army in Korea.
Roy was a lifelong resident of Hartford and a member of St. Kilian Catholic Church. He worked as a repairman for the West Bend company that became Chrysler Outboard Motor Co. for more than 40 years before his retirement. He enjoyed reading, listening to his Green Bay Packers and the Milwaukee Brewers, loved socializing with his friends, and as a bachelor he enjoyed going out to great restaurants for a good home-cooked meal. He will be remembered for always having a great smile on his face and a wonderful heart. He loved his St. Kilian Church dearly. His God gave him strength and guidance to get him through his health issues and hard times. He will be sadly missed. He certainly was a good man.
Roy is survived by his loving niece, Kathy M. (Juan) Gomez of Hartford and nephew, Danny Radermacher; great-nieces and nephews, Sarah and John Gomez, and Barry Radermacher; and great-great-nephews, Harley and James Radermacher. He is further survived by other dear relatives and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, Hugo and Caroline Fraundorf and his sister, Dorothy (Lawrence “Lorry”) Radermacher.
