Frank Charles Deak, 98, passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 27th, 2018 at his home in Matlacha, FL, surrounded by his loving family. He was born on August 20, 1920, in Kenosha WI to Frank and Katherine (nee Kempf) Deak and was preceded in death by his loving wife of 55 years, Margaret Jane Deak (nee Olds), son Frank Charles Deak III, brothers Joseph and Henry Deak, and sister Margaret Frederick.

Frank was a dedicated and successful farmer and owner of Deak's Sod Farm in Union Grove, WI and for a period of time was Wisconsin's largest sod grower. He also grew potatoes, onions, corn and soy beans and had a deep passion for farming and the agricultural industry. He loved raising his family in Waterford, WI and enjoyed many gatherings with family and friends at his lovely home on Gale Circle. On numerous occasions he and Jane hosted the annual Milford Club Party at their home and enjoyed the joyous celebration with many of their close friends.

After retiring at age 65, Frank and his wife, Jane, enjoyed their many fishing trips to Alaska where he loved catching Red Salmon in Alaska's River Country, enjoyed their summer log home in Presque Isle, WI, and winter home in Fort Myers Beach, FL. Frank later sold both homes and purchased a home in Matlacha, FL where he lived the past several years. Frank had a passion for life and lived each day to the absolute fullest. He traveled to Alaska 14 times and it was his favorite place in the world. We will miss you so much, Dad.

Frank is survived by his son Richard (Kay) Deak, daughters Christine (Dennis) Collins and Julianne (Russ) Odders, and daughter in-law Tracey Deak. Loving grandfather of Amanda (Jarred) Fiehweg, Emily (Sean) Lacey, Kristi (Tim) Riebe, Kyle Deak, Ryan (Vanessa) Odders, Elizabeth Odders, Tyler Deak, Megan Deak and 16 wonderful great grandchildren.

A private family memorial service was held at his son's home on October 1, 2018 in Cape Coral, FL.

Special thanks to the Hope Hospice team. Their compassion and support meant so much to us in the family's time of need. Arrangements by Coral Ridge Funeral Home, Cape Coral FL.
