Obituary: Frank Raymond Draheim

A long time resident of Lake Tahoe passed away on August 20, 2012. He was 86 years of age. Frank was born and raised in San Francisco, where he attended school. It was here that Frank met and later married his wife Patricia, where they raised their two sons, Frank Jr. and Steven.

Frank worked as a salesman for a plating company and eventually earned an executive position. Frank lived a blessed life – working hard, raising his family and just plain enjoying life to the fullest.

For fun he was an avid fisherman, enjoyed boating, swimming and he loved his cars. He and his family enjoyed wonderful 47 years in Lake Tahoe.

In his late years Frank and Pat moved to Maui, where they both enjoyed watching the sunset and the palm trees grow.

Frank will be greatly missed by his wife Patricia, son Steven, sister Diana, daughter in law Peggy, two grandsons – Justin and Chris (Kelly), granddaughter Emily, and many friends and relatives.

Rest in peace, we miss you. Aloha Frank!
