Obituary Condolences

Frantisek 'Frank' VYBORNY Frantisek 'Frank' Vyborny, born Jan. 14, 1915 in Kutna Hora, Czechoslovakia. During World War II, Frank was captured by the Germans and sent to a work camp. Once liberated, he met his wife, Sara, in Paris. Frank and Sara were among the last few immigrants to travel through Ellis Island. They eventually moved to Seattle, along with Sara's sister, Deborah, her husband, Victor, and Sara's sister-in-law, Bronka. Frank was known for his undying affection for his wife, who preceded him in death in 1991, and for his devotion to his extended family, including his nephew, Alex Sytman and niece, Janine Rosenbaum (Guttman). Even though Frank survived the horrors of World War II, you would never know it from speaking with him. He was a positive, amiable presence and without foe. Well into his senior years, Frank converted to Judaism â€" perhaps the ultimate statement of victory against the Nazis - and an affirmation that good will conquer evil. Frank passed away on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, Sept. 9, 2010/1 Tishrei, 5771. Remembrances in his name may be made to the Kline Galland Home, 7500 Seward Park Ave., Seattle, 98118.
