Krajcik, Dr. Frank A.
Dr. Frank Albert Krajcik, born on May 26, 1927 in Bridgeport, CT, died peacefully at home with family on July 24, 2014. Frank was the ninth child of eleven children of John Krajcik, Sr. and Anna Valko Krajcik, both immigrants from Slovakia. After high school, he enlisted at the age of 17 with the US Navy and participated as a radio operator in World War II. Returning from the war, he attended Muhlenberg College, Allentown, PA, and the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, Elkins Park, PA. He began his career as an optometrist in Stratford, CT. During this time, he was active with the Lutheran Church and enjoyed participating in church bowling leagues and golf. Dr. Krajcik married Irina Borisjuk, a Russian immigrant, in Stratford, CT, in 1959. They settled in Monroe, CT, vacationed in Sunapee, NH, and eventually moved permanently to Sunapee in 1974. With their six children, the family enjoyed skiing and travel. Frank continued his optometrist practice in Newport, NH, until the untimely death of his wife on December 5, 2005. He is survived by his sister, Elizabeth Olson of Stratford, CT; three sisters-in-law, Margaret Krajcik of Stratford, CT, Marilyn Krajcik of North Easton, MA, and Rosalie Krajcik of Stratford, CT; and fifteen nieces and nephews and their families.
