THOMAS J. "TOMMY" FRANKE JR., 64, passed away on Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2019, at his home. Thomas was the son of Thomas J. Franke Sr, and Margaret E. Franke, who preceded him in death. He was an avid Cincinnati Reds and Bengals fan. Thomas spent most of his working career in the printing business in Fort Wayne, most notably at Instant Copy of Fort Wayne. He was considered one of the market's finest printers. He enjoyed his trips to California to visit his loving sister, Mary Ann. They spent four wonderful months together last winter and spring enjoying the sunshine and beautiful weather as a family. He is survived by his sister, Mary Ann of San Clemente, Calif. He is also survived by his half-brother, Dan LaGrand of Las Vegas; his first cousins, William Franke Jr, Richard Franke, Mary Franke Erb, Stephen Franke, David Franke and Michael Franke, who all considered Tommy to be their brother. "His quick wit and great personality will be greatly missed by everyone." There will be no calling or service. Donations can be made in his name to the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission.
