On September 30, 1922 in Yukon Pennsylvania, Frank Pytlik blessed his parents Albert and Joanne (Piwowarczyk) Pytlik with his amazing presence. One of 8 children (5 brothers and 2 sisters), the family moved to Warren Ohio in 1929 where Frank grew up to graduate from Warren G. Harding High School, joining the Navy Air Corps on Veterans Day, November 11, 1942.

Frank served as a Seaman first class and World War II Navy Air Corp. Cadet, serving in World War II in the European and Pacific Theater. Frank sailed the seas on both the S. S. George W. Lively Liberty Cargo Ship and the S. S. Hovenweep Tanker. He left the service on January 31, 1946 where he then spent time in the Breckville VA Hospital, in Cleveland Ohio with a service connected disability.

Moving to Rialto, California with his wife in 1956, Frank and Doris Jean (Standley) Pytlik raised their four daughters while he worked at the Division of Highways (CalTrans) as a Delineator in Record Maps, Right Of Way Engineering. He retired in 1989, after 34 years of dedicated service, as a Senior Delineator.

Frank was an extremely hard working, kind, generous and honest man with a smile and sense of humor that could light up a room. He was a member of the American Legion, the Fraternal Order of Eagles and the DAV. His love of his family and our country was unsurpassed. He was happiest when spending time with his family, playing golf or watching sports. To say he was an avid sports fan would not be an exaggeration.

Frank is survived by his brother, Walter Pytlik of Warren Ohio, wife, Doris (Standley) Pytlik; daughters, Linda McKnight (Torrance, CA), Nancy Daniels (San Bernardino, CA), Janet Pytlik (New York, NY) and Laura (Russ) Eckersall (Glendale, AZ); grandchildren, Esther (Brandon) Daniels Platt, Kelli McKnight, Naomi Daniels, Caroline Daniels Coats , Mark (Vanessa) McKnight, Mathew Daniels and Patrick Eckersall; great grandchildren, Anaya Daniels, Neriah Coats, Dominick Coats Jr., Gabriel Coats, Gideon Coats, Ava Daniels and Nikolas McKnight; brother-in-law Richard (Judy) Standley.

Frank is preceded in death by his brothers, Edward, Joseph, Ted, Steve Pytlik and sisters, Ann Groth and Joanne Pytlik.

We will miss his smile, his sense of humor, thoughtfulness, kindness and his polish jokes!
