Frank C. Hoover, 76, Luthersburg, passed away Sunday, February 11, 2018 at his home by his loving wife, Ruby.

Born September 8, 1941, he was the son of the late Jay and Martha (Johnson) Hoover.

Frank liked to go on daily road trips antiquing, eating at different restaurants, and collecting American Eagles, of which there are many. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. As a young boy, he won the fishing rodeo at the Tannery Dam. He was very proud of this accomplishment. Frank and his wife, Ruby, always traveled together when they went anywhere. They never went any place without the other. Frank was a member of St. Luke's United Church of Christ in Luthersburg.

He was proud of helping his cousin remodel the inside and outside of his family's home to make it look like a little log home. His wife is proud of what he has done for her, and his memory and love will live on through their home.
