Frank Weinman, beloved father, grandfather and great-grandfather, died on July 10, 2009 in Walnut Creek, California, just one day after celebrating his 95th birthday. Mr. Weinman, a resident of the Rossmoor Senior Adult Community in Walnut Creek, had lived for many years in Chicago and Skokie with his beloved wife Teri, who died in 1975. His second wife, the beloved Frances Alt, passed away in 2003. Frank led an extraordinary life. Born in Vienna, Austria, he and Teri came to America in 1941, having barely escaped the Nazi occupation of their respective homelands, Austria and Hungary. He and his brother, Charles Weinman, worked as chemists at the American Decal Company in Chicago, but his passions extended far beyond his avocation. Frank was a true intellectual who loved to study, learn, teach and travel. He was a terrific story teller, both with the spoken and written word. He was an avid writer who penned numerous stories, including his autobiography — the gripping account of his life in pre-Nazi Austria, and harrowing escape from Hilter’s grip.

He was blessed to have two loving families who became one because of him. Mr. Weinman is survived by his daughters, Frances Schwartz of Montvale, New Jersey, and her husband Stuart; Dr. Linda Wolf of Los Gatos, California and her husband Dr. Alex Gelber; Judy Lichterman of Lafayette, California, and her husband, Maynard; George Alt of Northbrook, Illinois, and his wife Maureen. Frank is also survived by seven grandchildren: Dana Bash, David Schwartz, Richard and Jonathan Gelber, Jennine Lichterman, Yvette Miller and Jonathan Alt, and by six great-grandchildren. His family will forever miss and cherish the life of this brave, brilliant and loving man. Donations on behalf of Frank Weinman may be made to Temple Isaiah, 3800 Mt. Diablo Blvd., Lafayette, California 94549.
