Francis Radosevich, age 83, passed away on November 25, 2020, after a courageous battle with cancer. Frank was born on August 25, 1937 to Roy and Marie Radosevich, the oldest son in a family of 10 children.  He graduated from Green Bay West High School.  Frank married Carol Holschuh in 1959 and they enjoyed over 61 years of married life. 

    Frank began his working life as a carpenter and maintained an interest in home building and remodeling his entire life.  He was later employed by Procter and Gamble as a machine adjuster and retired after a 30-year career.  Frank served in the Army National Guard during the Berlin Crisis. Carol and Frank lived in Tacoma, Washington while his unit was activated and deployed to Fort Lewis. 

    Frank and Carol raised two children, Ann and Roy.  Together, the family enjoyed traveling and camping around the country. In retirement, Frank and Carol continued these adventures, eventually visiting 49 states and 11 countries! For over 20 years, they also enjoyed a yearly spring camping trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama. Frank embraced an active lifestyle for his entire life.  He enjoyed participating in running races, bicycling, cross-country skiing and inline skating. He competed in the American Birkebeiner ski race for over 20 years, earning his Birchleggings scroll! Carol and Frank also began inline skating in their 60’s and competed in the NorthShore Inline Marathon until Frank was 71. Frank also had a love for the Spanish language.  He enjoyed taking classes, and engaging in speaking Spanish whenever he could.  Another pastime Frank enjoyed was gardening and tending to his trees.  Frank’s Catholic faith was very important to him.  He was an active and faithful member of his parish.  Community involvement was also important to Frank.  He worked with Habitat for Humanity, Saint Vincent de Paul, supported local recreational trail development and served on the Village of Bellevue Zoning and Appeals board. 

     Frank is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Carol and their two children Ann (John) Ernst and Roy Radosevich. They are also blessed with 3 grandchildren, Levi (Audrey), Zachary and Elizabeth. Frank was an active grandparent who loved his grandchildren with all his heart. Frank is further survived by his siblings, Betty Renard, Donald (Sherry) Radosevich, Robert (Betty) Radosevich, Mary (Dave) Calaway, Steve Radosevich, Peter Radosevich and Susan Radosevich.  He was preceded in death by his sisters, Rose Van Duyse and Carol Kania.
