Frank is lovingly remembered by his three children; daughters Celeste Wieman McAloon (Michael) and Margaret Wieman Nordahl; his son, Daniel Wieman (Michelle), and his grandchildren Ryan McAloon, Thomas McAloon, Sam Peck, Alex Peck and Claire Sandoval-Peck.

Celeste, Margaret & Danny,

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen you or my godfather and I was sad to hear of his passing. What a long and full life he lived! My parents always spoke of Frank & Eileen’s friendship and generosity during the years they lived in Seattle. Dad talked about being a poor college student with a wife and child (me) and how your parents often invited them over for dinner which was so appreciated. I will have a mass said for him since I am unable to attend the funeral. Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord: and let perpetual light shine upon him.

His life was full of kindly deeds,
A helping hand to all in need,
A pleasant smile, a heart of gold,
No better man this world could hold.
May his soul rest in peace. Amen.

Dan, Celeste and Margaret,

My condolences to all of you and your families. It’s been years since we last spoke but I just wanted to thank you once again for the love and generosity your family shared with me back in 1986 when I was starting my company and didn’t have a dime to my name. Allowing me to live with you during that very difficult time was such a big help both emotionally and financially. I am forever grateful and will always keep your dad, mom and you all in my thoughts and prayers.
