Frank Donaldson, 80, of Everett, beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather went home to his heavenly Father on August 2, 2013. Frank was born and raised in Seattle, the only child of Margaret and Frank Sr. He graduated from Lakeside School and the University of Washington with a degree in marketing and worked his entire life in sales.
Frank and his high school sweetheart, Carol, would have been married 58 years on August 6. Together they raised three sons, David (Karen), Kenneth (Gayla) and Robert (Lexi). He is also survived by seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
Frank and Carol loved traveling, he was happiest planning his next road trip. The favorite destination was Palm Desert, California. Frank was also an avid sports fan and faithfully attended Husky football games for many years. He enjoyed golfing with his sons and father-in-law and spent many frustrating hours looking for his golf ball due to a chronic slice. Frank had a life long love of music, singing and playing the trumpet as a young man, he was known to burst into song at the slightest provocation.
Frank was a faithful church goer until ill health prevented attending worship services. He was a long time member of Faith
Lutheran Church, serving on the church council and singing in the choir and men's chorus for many years.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 10 at 11:30 a.m. at Faith Lutheran Church, 6708 Cady Road, Everett. Remembrances may be made in Frank's honor to Faith Lutheran Church.
