Obituary: Schwartz, Frank Anthony
July 21, 2012 marks the blessed day that Frank Anthony Schwartz left this world and entered eternity with his Lord and Savior. Frank was born in Butte Montana on July 9, 1964 and resided in Spokane, Washington at the time of his death. His battle with stage 4 lung cancer began on March 14, just two days after the death of his beloved mother, Sandra June Murray.
Frank lived in Butte, Montana most of his life and attended school at Webster-Garfield, West Junior High and Butte High School. He spent time in Lakewood, Colorado for several years where he attended Slater Elementary School. Frank lived in Michigan, Oregon, and Arizona during his lifetime as well.
He is preceded in death by his mother Sandra, brother, Michael and maternal and paternal grandparents. Frank is survived by his father, Terry Eaglefeather of Spokane, Washington; his son, Franklin Schwartz of Butte, Montana, sister Terri June Blake (Stan) of Green River, Wyoming; best friend and brother, Victor Schwartz (Sandra) of Spokane, Washington; sister, Linda Sams (Woody) of Spokane, Washington; brother, Brandon Redhawk (Jenna) of Spokane, Washington, and brother Joshua Schwartz of Longmont, Colorado; girlfriend Kathy Ruiz of Spokane, Washington, as well as several aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews and cousins.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Wittenkeller and his staff at Cancer Care Northwest as well as the staff at Hospice of Spokane. They took great care of Frank in his final months and were amazing support to the family as we fought the battle together.
A memorial will be held at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Butte, Montana on August 25th at 11:00 am. A reception will follow in the basement of the church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Frank’s name at any Wells Fargo Bank.
