Frank was born on November 27, 1932 in Cement City, MO to Nick and Georgia Perusich. He served in the US Army from February 2, 1953 – December 17, 1954 and was honorably discharged as a corporal. He was a pressman for Lowell Press Inc. of Kansas City MO for 38 years.
Frank was a chef and loved cooking for his large family throughout his life. He along with his sons Frankie and Mike and grandson Dakota formed a competition BBQ team called “Sons of a Brisket!” He was so proud of this. He loved watching his grandkids and great-grandkids playing any kind of sport, and he was an avid fan of the KC Chiefs. He loved to travel and take cruises, and will be always remembered as an amazing dad, grandpa, and great-grandpa.
