Robert T. Frauenberger Obituary
Robert T. Frauenberger 05/12/1930 ~ 05/15/2010 OCEANSIDE -- Remembering the life of Robert (Bob) T. Frauenberger, who passed suddenly on Saturday, May 15, 2010, with his family by his side. Robert was preceded in death by his son, David Frauenberger; and survived by his sister, Betty Blackburn; daughter, Karen Lopez; and two sons, Robert Frauenberger, and Donald Frauenberger (Jennifer Brown); a nephew, niece, grandchildren, and great- grandchildren. He was born in Pasadena, Calif., and moved to Oceanside, Calif., in 1938, where he resided for the remainder of his glorious life, living in the same home for 70 years. Robert graduated from the Army/Navy Academy in Carlsbad, Calif., in 1948. He worked for Kovakar (an industrial shop towel business) until he opened his own business "Pacific Towel," which he operated for more than 40 years. Robert played in local basketball leagues into his 30s, bowling leagues into his 60s, and played Bridge into his 80s. He was an avid water skier who would spend hours coaching anyone that wanted to learn to ski, and once you learned, he was your biggest fan. He loved being on his boat in the water at Lake Havasu. Robert was a gallant man who touched the lives of many. His life is celebrated by the extended family and friends with whom he shared jokes and laughs, or good times in the sun. A memorial for Robert will be held between 3 and 7 p.m., Thursday, June 10, at the Oceanside Elks Club, 444 Country Club Lane in Oceanside. Contact for information will be his son, Donald (760-250-9318). Please come ready to share your memories in a "casual atmosphere." In lieu of flowers, his family request that you donate to an animal shelter of your choice. Sign the Guest Book online obits.nctimes.com
