Emil B Fronek, Beloved father, grandfather and friend, died peacefully on June 26, 2021. He was born in Garden City MI on January 23, 1944. Attended Garden City High School, graduating in 1962. He retired from the Ford Truck Plant in Wayne, MI after 40 years of service. Emil was incredibly intelligent and creative; he could put an engine in a car one day and weld a sculpture the next! In his younger years, he loved hunting and fishing with his buddies, scuba diving with his dad and riding motorcycles. In his later years, he became more eccentric with his long hair, long beard and unique style. His signature scent patchouli entered the room before he did! Always the life of the party, his dry sense of humor and quick wit will be missed by all who knew him. The last two years of his life were filled with one medical issue after another, however, he handled it all with grace and dignity and he never missed an opportunity to turn on the charm with the nurses! He dearly loved his dog “Baby” and she will be cared for by family. Emil leaves behind his three children: Eric Fronek (Jen), Lisa Scott (Larry) and Curtis Ayers (Michele). Affectionately known as Big Grandpa, he leaves behind 5 grandchildren: Madelyn Fronek, Lily Fronek, Damien Clark (Teresa), Paige Scott and Tyler Scott. Emil was preceded in death by his father, Emil W Fronek, his mother, Martha Shephard and his sister, Fay Wright. A memorial service may be scheduled at a future time.
