BARABOO—James Neilson Frank, age 72, of Baraboo, passed away Saturday, Nov. 30, 2019, at St. Clare Meadows, with his family by his side. James, son of Reuben Walter and Mary Louise (Wiechers) Frank, was born March 12, 1947, in Waukesha, Wis. On July 14, 1973, he was united in marriage to Gail Ann Wilcox.

Jim was always a car guy. After graduation from Mid-State Technical College, his entire employment career was as an automotive parts manager for Glacier Valley Ford and Bushnell Ford.

Jim was all we could hope for in a husband, father, son and brother. We could always count on him to be faithful, solid and strong. He loved his family beyond measure. We were truly blessed.

Survivors include his loving wife, Gail; children, Christopher J. Frank and Rachel A. Frank; sisters, Paula Jean Frank, Elizabeth Frank and Elaine (David Grado) Frank; as well as, the best friends in the world.
