  1. I didn’t even know that Frank had passed away until I saw this today. Sad to hear the news and know that he is gone. He was a bigger than life when I knew him at FE Warren and I feel for the family

  2. I will miss Frank. I had the privilege of being his hospice nurse. I will miss the stories that he would share during my visits with him. My sincerest condolences to his family.

  3. Hello All…As many have noticed and called me about some errors in my father’s obituary (Names Misspelled…Missing Names…etc.) Please see a summary of my dad’s amazing life….

    Frank J. Mondlak Jr. was born November 18, 1954 to Frank J. Mondlak Sr. and Pauline Williams of Toledo, Ohio. Frank served 24 years in the United States Air Force. He retired from F.E. Warren A.F.B. in 1997. F.E. Warren A.F.B. was his favorite base despite all of the wonderful places the USAF took him such as England, Alaska, North Carolina, Missiouri, and Illinois to name a few. While living in North Carolina he and his ex-wife Sharon (Propernick) had two beautiful daughters Jamie (Eaton) and Danielle (Hayes)which Frank fell madly in love with. Frank doted on his beautiful daughters and was extremely proud of them. Jamie and Dani got to travel the world with Frank and experience the extraordinary life the military provided them. Frank and Sharon were married for 23 years.

    In 1998 Frank met his wife Rochelle in Pueblo, Colorado while they both worked for the Department of Social Services. They were together for 8 long years before they FINALLY got married. They have been married 10 wonderful years. With that marriage came 2 step-sons which he adored Nathan and Andrew Welsh. Frank loved his sons and would often brag to family and friends at how proud he was of the boys as the grew older.

    Frank loved his life and family even more. He loved to build things and work on his house and yard. He was always in the garage tinkering with something. He was a skilled mechanic with the mouth of a sailor on a good day. Frank was an amazing chef, a skill his grandson Bruce Anthony definitely inherited. Frank never learned how to retire properly. After doing it twice, once from the USAF and once from DSS he decided to go back to work for DSS until he retired March 31, 2017 for his final time. Frank loved to work and he loved his work family just as much. He spoke of them often.

    Frank is survived by his loving wife Rochelle Mondlak, ex-wife Sharon Propernick, his daughters Jamie Eaton and Danielle Hayes, granddaughters April, Hunter, Cody, and Cora, his sons Nathan (Stephania) Welsh and Andrew (Melissa)Welsh, granddaughters Natalie, Savannah, Kadynce, Annaston, Breena, and Morgan, and grandsons Peyton and Nathan Jr.

    The sunset on Frank’s time on this earth on June 5, 2017. Frank is preceded in death
    by his parents Frank J. Mondlak Sr. and Pauline Williams, and is eldest grand child Bruce Saint Anthony Eaton.

  4. My condolences go out to the family. I was cry saddened to hear that Frank passed away. I worked with him for almost 15 years at DSS. He was a great man and helped me keep my head held high many times. My heart is with you all.
