Frank Howard Kubiak, 96 years young, passed away peacefully February 18, 2021 at Gulfport Memorial. He was born November 2, 1924 in Wisconsin to Frank and Anna Kubiak. He is preceded in death by his parents and sisters, Dorian and Violet. Frank is survived in legacy by his wife of 44 years, Imm Kubiak; children, David and his wife Debra Kubiak, Mark Kubiak and Lisa Kubiak along with extended family and friends. Frank was the youngest of three and the only son. He was spoiled from the start. After graduating high school, Frank joined the Navy and proudly served his country and fellow man during WWII on the USS Tillman in the Pacific. After serving in the Navy, he decided to finish his military career with the Coast Guard serving in Alaska. After retiring, Frank built another career as a surveyor with Matthew Daniels Firm on the Gulf Coast. The Coast Guard motto is Semper Paratus- meaning “Always Ready” and that sums up Frank. He was a remarkable man. Either you knew him or you didn’t and what you seen is what you got when it came to Frank. He had no hold back in him and you never had to guess how he felt about you. His personality was bigger than life itself. Frank was intelligent, possessed a great sense of humor and his eyes could make anyone fall in love with him. Frank wrote his own rules and if someone said something couldn’t be done, Frank did it anyway. He had a rare combination of someone who had a love of life and a firm understanding of what was important; the simplicity of living a life with those you love. He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed the full circle of life, from hunting and fishing at a young age to the beauty of the animals in his later years. Frank will be forever loved and fondly remembered. A Celebration of Life will be held at 10 am Thursday, February 25 at St. Matthew’s Catholic Church. A private burial ceremony will take place at a later date. Trinity Funeral Services is honored to serve the Kubiak family as they grieve the loss of Mr. Frank and asks that you keep them uplifted in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
