Frank was born in Gilbert, Minnesota on April 16, 1926, to Frank and Josephine (Babich) Lopp.  He graduated from Gilbert High School in 1944 and enlisted in the A.A.F.  He served in the European Theater with the 9th Air Force as a tail gunner on a B-24.

 

Frank was married on July 14, 1951, to Yvonne Leif, and they had five children. Nancy (John) Murray, Frank (Liz) Lopp, Diane (Dale) Wurzinger, Patti (Randy) Troendle and Mark Lopp.  

 

After 37 years of service, Frank retired from U.S. Steel as a planner.

Frank was a life member of the V.F.W. Post 4456, K.C.'s, D.A.V., Honor Guard and Legion Post #239.  He was a proud driver for veterans treating at the VA Hospital in Minneapolis and was also privileged to participate with the Honor Flight to visit the Veterans' memorials in Washington DC.

 

Frank enjoyed family gatherings, spending time at his cabin on Lake Vermillion, traveling to Europe and Hawaii and many states throughout the USA and was an enthusiastic Vikings and Twins fan.

 

He was preceded in death by his parents and sisters, Frances Lopp and Mary Novak.

 

Frank is survived by his wife, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, two nieces and one nephew.  He was loved, honored and respected by his family and many others.  He will be dearly missed.
