In Memory

Frank Straka

 

 

Paramus - Frank, 81, of Paramus, passed away on Tuesday, March 9, 2021.  Before retiring, Frank worked for the Paramus Board of Ed as a 5th grade and Resource Room teacher.  After retirement, he went on to work for the Bergen County Superintendent of Elections Office.

He was a member of the Knights of Columbus, a five-time elected official of the Paramus Board of Education, a member of the Paramus Environmental Commission, a member of the Board of Directors for the Paramus Volunteer Ambulance Corps, and a proud member of the Catholic War Veterans.

Frank was a parishioner of Our Lady of the Visitation R.C. Church in Paramus and served for many years as a Eucharistic Minister. Frank embodied the true definition of a community man--he was always there to cheer on the local sports teams, march in a parade, or join a committee to enhance his beloved town.

Cherished husband of 51 years to Carolyn Straka (nee Auclair). Loving father of Edward Straka and his wife Teresa of Park Ridge, NJ. Dear brother of Joan Deck and her husband Lou of Manasquan. Beloved uncle of Louis Deck and Kathi Deck.
