Milton John Frenzel, Jr. loving husband, father, brother and friend passed away on June 5th. He was born in Galveston, Texas on December 21, 1937 to Milton Frenzel, Sr. and Irene Walter Frenzel.
Milt, a 1955 graduate of Elgin High School, attended University of Texas and was a lifelong Texas football enthusiast. He was a machinist for Union Carbide where he developed wonderful friendships over his 35 years there. One of these friendships was with his soon to be father in law, O. A. (Swede) Sandberg. Milt met and married Karen Rebecca (Becky) Sandberg after a two month courtship and remained married for 59 years. Milton was a lifelong Mason and recently got his 50 year pin. He was a Master Mason.
Apart from his love for all things Texas football, Milt loved to be on the golf course and spent time there with family and friends. He was accomplished in clock repairs and spent much time in his clock shop. He has a great collection of clocks in his home and enjoyed hearing them tick, strike and chime often in unison. He was a devoted member of the Arcadian Christian Church in Santa Fe.
He was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents, his devoted wife Becky and son John. He is survived by his daughters Kim and Kathy and husband David Duncan, daughter in law Suzanne and grandson Kaleb, sister Patricia and brother Ed.
The family wishes to thank the neighbors of Sherwood Forest West in Dickinson for their continued friendship and support after the death of his wife, Becky. Much gratitude to Minister Jeff Spielman of Arcadia Christian Church for his spiritual guidance and support and a special thanks to Patricia Frenzel for her devotion to family through Becky's illness and death continuing through her brother's illness and death.
A service of remembrance will be held Saturday, June 24th at 11AM at the Arcadia Christian Church, 14201 Briton Street, Santa Fe with Senior Minister Jeff Spielman officiating. The Masonic Lodge of Dickinson will be participating in the service as well. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Arcadia Christian Church or the Salvation Army.
