Van Bree, Frank R.

Frank R. Van Bree, 71, passed away peacefully March 5, 2014, at home in Mosinee, surrounded by his family. We will be forever grateful to Dr. Tomasz Okon for helping us bring Frank home, and for all the help from Aspirus Hospice.

Frank was born December 9, 1942 in Racine, the son of Frank and Elsie Van Bree. He was a teacher at Wausau East H.S. for many years where he taught math, physics, and computer science.

Frank is survived by his special friend, Arlinda Warren, and the kids who thought of him as Dad - Jeana, Cody, and Noah Warren.

A celebration of Frank's life will be held at Mosinee United Methodist Church, 607 13th St, Mosinee, on Saturday, March 15, at 2:00 PM, with Pastor Park Hunter officiating. Frank is one of those kind, gentle souls who touched the lives of everyone he met. We were all so blessed to know him. Come share your memories.
