Truax, Francis "Frank" H. SCHENECTADY Francis "Frank" H. Truax, 76 of Schenectady, passed away peacefully Tuesday, September 11, 2018. Born on August 6, 1942, in Schoharie, Frank was the son of the late Francis A. and Marion (Adair) Truax. He was the devoted husband to the late Peggy Ann (Cline) Truax. Together they were married 50 years until her passing on May 3, 2018. Loving father of Katrina Truax and Eric F. Truax. Cherished grandfather of Ashley, Selena, Patrick and Braylee. Dearest brother of Stan Truax and Frannie Truax. Brother-in-law of the late Charles Cline Jr., the late William Thomas Cline and Maureen Dominski. Also survived by nephews, Scott Truax, Tim Truax and Kenji Cline; and nieces, Naomi Bowlin and Susan Dominski. Frank was raised in Oneonta, where he attended local schools and received his education. He enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1963 and received an honorable discharge at the rank of Sgt. (E-5) in 1966 for his faithful service. Frank resided in Schenectady where he and his wife raised their family. For 40 plus years, Frank was employed by the State of New York as in various capacities. He retired as a computer operator from the State Comptroller's Office in the '90s. Frank was a simple, dignified man who in his pastime enjoyed his Western films, old movies and country music; but most of all, he was a family man. He especially cherished the time he spent with his grandchildren. Frank enjoyed traveling to destinations with his wife Peggy and the family. Frank and Peggy always shared a dream after retirement of traveling cross country. Although we miss our mom, dad and papa dearly, we find comfort in knowing that they are together in heaven for their 50th anniversary which would have been celebrated on Friday the 14th of September. Something that meant so much to the both of them, especially Frank these past few days of his brief illness. Now, they are truly together forever.
