Franklin “Frank” Wischhusen

Frank was born in Baltimore, MD and spent his school years there. He enlisted in the US Navy in 1951 and served until 1954. Frank later re-enlisted in the US Air Force, serving until 1973 when he retired as a Tech. Sgt. At Malmstrom AFB in Great Falls. Frank served during both the Korean and Vietnam conflicts and was proud of his service. During this time Frank married Marie Marslett and had four children during their 20-year marriage, Victoria, Valerie, Robert and Vanessa prior to their divorce in 1974. Marie passed away in MD in 1987.

After retirement, Frank stayed busy with some odd jobs in Great Falls and was re-married to Joanne “Jo” Anderson in 1978. The two were happily married until her passing in 2009. Frank enjoyed fishing and the couple spent many summers in Minnesota at Jo’s family cabin. After Jo’s passing, Frank moved to Florida to be with family, later returning to Montana. Frank was known in his circles for making jewelry and polishing rocks which he often handed out to people he came in contact with.

Frank is preceded in death by his first wife Marie, second wife Joanne and daughter Victoria.
