Gifts & Memorial Donations

Thrailkill, Frank E, 65, of New Port Richey, passed away unexpectedly at home on May 26, 2017. Frank was born on August 6, 1951 in San Antonio, Texas. He was the son of the late, Franklin and Irene (Jonietz) Thrailkill. Frank was born and raised in Texas but moved to Florida in 2001, coming from New England.  Frank worked and retired as the manager of an accounts receivable company. In retirement he worked at Heritage Harbor Golf Course and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. In his spare time, he enjoyed “mastering” the game of golf. He loved fishing,  smoking his cigars and being with his family.  He was extremely passionate about his work and especially his family. Frank was also a huge fan of his sports teams, the New York Yankees and the Dallas Cowboys.

Frank is survived by his loving and faithful wife of 33 years, Joan Thrailkill; his sons, Trey and Austen Thrailkill; his daughter,  Tawny Wagner; grandchildren, Jacob and Madelyn Wagner; brothers, Larry and Dennis Thrailkill; sisters, Patricia Veselis, Diane Jordan, and Holly Moher; numerous nephews, nieces, and great-nieces and great-nephews. Frank will be missed by family and friends and will always be remembered for his kindness, and his laid back demeanor. Frank loved his life and would often comment on how content and happy he was.

A celebration of life is to be held at 10 am on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at the Michels & Lundquist funeral home, located at 5228 Trouble creek Road, New Port Richey, Florida 34652. Feel free to make a donation to a charity of your choice on Frank’s behalf.

    So sorry for your loss. Frank was a great man that loved his wife and sons. I would see him at the Clubhouse when he would come in to pick up his breakfast sandwich. I would also ask him to say hell to Joan. He said that Joan was great and a wonderful person when I told him how much Joan did for me. Love, support, and prayers to Frank's family.

    My fondest memory of Frank was years ago when our sons played on the same team. Joan was working out of town and he asked me to make a bracelet for her return. It was just so sweet the way he missed her. Love and prayers to the family.

    Frank was a mans man. I'll miss those Monday morning golf games. The jokes and laughs we had analyzing our golf game and discussing politics. He was a great pal always ready to help a buddy whether it was giving a friend a ride or hanging pictures for a pal with a bad back. He would make time to give a helping hand. He was soft spoken tolerant man but never miss understand that for weakness. He loved his family and was proud of them. Goodby dear friend hit them long and straight you RB see you on number 1 tee box.
