Frank Hobrath, 79, passed away September 22, 2021. The son of Jakob and Eva Hobrath, Frank was born in Velimirovac, Croatia (formerly Yugoslavia), and moved to the US as a teenager. He then served in the US Army, 101st Airborne Division. Frank was a machinist for Cleveland Twist Drill for 37 years, and was an active member of Bethel Christian Church.
Frank is survived by the love of his life, his wife, Heidi (nee Maltzahn); daughters, Tina Vukovic (Paul), Lisa Conley (Nick) and Suzette Marunowski (Scott); dearest siblings, Adam Hobrath, Henry Hobrath and Ernestine Ziefle; and eight precious grandchildren, Greta, Anika, Elena, Olivia, Ethan, Eva, Ezra and Ella.
