Frank M. Kress

Frank Kress, a loving father, devoted grandfather, and a proud member of Narcotics Anonymous, passed away suddenly on Thursday, September 7, 2023. His untimely departure has left a void in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.

Frank was survived by his four children, Frankie Kress, Jr., Elijah Kress, Kirstie Kress, Hannah Kress, and his five grandchildren, Talulah, Dakota, and Reign Kress, and Essence and Everleigh Grimes. He is also survived by his siblings Erin Kress (husband Will), Ira Kress (wife Heather) and his Aunt Lesley Zark and his best friend in the world, Stephanie from Connecticut.

Frank's legacy extends beyond his role as a father, as he was also a doting grandfather. He reveled in the sweet innocence and boundless energy of his grandchildren, creating cherished memories that will endure through generations.

Frank was a beacon of compassion in his community church. He possessed an innate ability to connect with people from all walks of life. He loved our Lord, Jesus Christ without wavering.

One of the defining aspects of Frank's life was his unwavering commitment to his recovery and his membership of Narcotics Anonymous. For 31 years, he navigated the path of staying clean, inspiring countless others along the way. His perseverance and determination were a testament to the transformative power of love and support. Frank's warm smile and genuine nature endeared him to everyone fortunate enough to cross his path.

His presence in the rooms of Narcotics Anonymous will be deeply missed, as he touched the lives of many fellow members, offering guidance, empathy, and hope.

Frank's memory will forever be cherished by his children, his grandchildren, family members, friends, and the countless individuals whose lives he touched. His legacy serves as a reminder of the importance of love, compassion, and the power of human connection.

In our hearts, Frank's memory will forever remain. May he rest in peace, knowing that he made a profound difference in the lives of those around him.

Matthew 20:28

Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

As Frankie would say, "the ransom was paid".

May he now rest in peace.
