[MAY 27, 2004]  He was that unique blend of likable and purposeful. The memory of Pete Frantz lives on with warmth in the hearts of all those who knew him. He left a legacy of community involvement as a volunteer and public servant. His works were broad and he touched the lives of all those in each circle he was involved with. He was even talked about by those who only met him once. Those who heard his prisoner of war story felt privileged by his willingness to tell it. They said it was an amazing story to hear.

Pete still went to the Logan County Courthouse daily to keep the connection with those who worked there and to help out. He was like extended family there. Hed stop in for coffee every day and would share with County Clerk Sally Litterly and the office staff things that would be helpful that he had circled in the paper.

Litterly took over the job and was trained by Pete. "He was a great guy and hell be missed by everybody," she said.

"He's just been one outstanding public servant for Logan County and we shall miss him so much," county board secretary JoAnne Marlin said. He had many great qualities and his knowledge of political issues was extensive. He had a great sense of humor, Marlin said.

Pete was a known "chocoholic," and those who knew him kept a good supply on hand for his visits.

Pete was very active and in touch with everyone until his recent brief illness. He is remembered by all with great fondness.
