Francis J. Jr.

Francis J. Mikula Jr., 69, passed away on March 14, 2015. He was born in Detroit, Michigan, on August 30, 1945, to Angeline and Frank Mikula. He attended Cass Tech and Western High School. Frank joined the U.S. Air Force on June 24, 1963, and served for four years, mostly at Lockbourne Air Force Base near Columbus, Ohio. On May 21, 1966, Frank married Margaret Grebetz at Holy Cross Church in Detroit, Michigan. Frank was a loyal employee of Chrysler for forty years. He enjoyed his job and gained many friends. He made friends easily throughout his life and enjoyed getting together with them, remembering the good old days and adding to the memories each and every day. Frank was a devoted Catholic. He was a member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church since 1970, where he was an usher for several years. He enjoyed making people laugh, attending sporting events, and going on family vacations, frequently traveling up North in Michigan and to Cedar Point amusement park. Most especially, he took pride in all that his family has accomplished in their personal and professional lives.

Frank will be dearly missed by his wife, Margie; children, Mark (Lisa), Michael, and Monica (Steve); son-in-law, Jon; and eight grandchildren; as well as his family and friends with whom he shared so many wonderful moments. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Mary Lou. His wife, children, and grandchildren were his greatest gifts.
