BRUCE ALLAN FRANK, age 68 of New Richland, passed away peacefully at his home on Thursday, July 1, 2021 surrounded by family.
Born in Waseca on June 24, 1953, Bruce was the son of Lorenz and Jean (Herzberg) Frank. Bruce married Kathy Bauman and they had four boys together, Chris, Cory, Chad, and Corky. He and Kathy later divorced. Bruce loved farming, his Harley Davidson motorcycle (which he called his favorite girl), trucking, and later on selling his flowers, fruits & veggies from his stand in New Richland. He also enjoyed woodworking. He most loved his family and times spent with them fishing and hunting. He met his best friend and love in 2009: Jackie Kanne who remembered him from high school days. They loved to garden, take care of their chickens, cats, and their dog Marley when they moved to their place in the country in New Richland. He was a farm boy at heart. Bruce was known and loved by many and enjoyed the conversations around his flower and vegetable stands. He was a gentle man who fought a brave battle with cancer for two years.
Bruce is survived by his much loved fiancé, Jacqueline Kanne; his sons, Cory, Chris (Josie), Chad (Samantha) and Corky (Tammy) Frank; his daughters, Dallas Frank and Theresa Spear; his second family, Amy (Darin) Gunderman and Adam (Jodi) Draheim; his grandchildren, Andrew, Jayden, Desirae, Michael F., Tristen, Indya, Brandon, Wyatt, Emily, Chandler, Allie, Michael G., Darya, Dalton, and Ilamay; two great-granddaughters, Hadley and Penelope; and two great-grandchildren on the way; and his Aunt, Joyce Frank.
