Raymond Frank Munsee, 74, passed away his home in Thermopolis on August 24, 2017.

Frank was born September 18, 1942, in Duchesne, Utah, to Benjamin and Sarah Elizabeth (Potter) Munsee. He was one of seven children, Ben, Byron, Keith, Al, Noreen and Verona.

Shortly after his birth the family moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, a small area referred to as Sweedtown where he went to grade school. Making many friends, they formed a gang called “Sweedtown Hoods”. They enjoyed being near the train tracks where no doubt there was on-going mischief. Frank went to West High School where he was known as a “cool cat”, good guy and a great guy.

After high school, Frank joined the Air Force. In 1964 he was stationed at Beale Airforce Base in Marysville, Calif., where he met and married his first wife. Together they had five children, Damon, Cyndee, Dana, Daniel and Marti. They returned to Utah. After being honorably discharged there was a move to Montana where he started working for Mechanics Choice, which supplied auto body shops and stores. During the next 9 years they moved from Utah to Wyoming to Idaho. He enjoyed his job with Mechanics Choice and retired in 1987

In 1989 Frank found the love of his life, Cora R. Cuaton. They met in the Philippines and dated for two years. Marrying in 1991 they had many laughs together when attempting to teach each other their native language. As well, Frank tried to convince Cora camping and hunting was fun. She remained unconvinced. They enjoyed living in Montana, Kentucky and moved to Thermopolis, Wyo., in 1992.

Frank enjoyed hunting, fishing, coin collecting, woodworking, camping, hiking and reading. He was a great father and caring husband. 

Frank is survived by 14 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and 22 nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Keith, Al, and Byron Munsee; son, Derick; and nephew, Lee Munsee.

 Inurnment was held in the Riverside Cemetery on August 30.
