Frank Gorczyca, age 71, of Saint John passed away May 29th after a fierce battle with lung disease. Frank was a graduate of Whiting High School in 1968. He went on to attend Purdue University before being drafted. Frank was a Field Radio Mechanic in the Vietnam War for 4 years.

Frank was a diehard Sox fan, and he also loved the Blackhawks and Bears. He was a big fan of the Rolling Stones. Frank also enjoyed riding his Harley and driving his GMC truck. His favorite hobby was woodworking and made amazing jewelry boxes and birdhouses for family and friends. He loved fishing and grilling for family on every holiday. You could always find him with either a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup or Corona in hand.
