A former President of the Indiana Funeral Director’s Association has passed away at the Pulaski Health Care Center in Winamac. Max Frain, 84, was the president of the association in 1978. His sons, Dan and Sam Frain, followed their dad as president, making them the first family to produce three presidents of the association.
Frain and his wife Jean purchased the Fry and Lange Funeral Home in 1969 and, in 1976, changed the name to Frain Mortuary.
During his lifetime, he was also a 12-year member of the Winamac Schools and Eastern Pulaski School Corporations. He was Pulaski County Coroner for several years and a proud member of the Republican political party.
He was a 50-year member of Winamac Lodge #262 F & AM, and was a former member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Scottish Rite and ORAK Shrine.
Frain was also a charter member of the former Winamac Rotary Club in addition to being a member of the Winamac Kiwanis Club and Pulaski County Red Cross.
Serving as a funeral home director in Winamac, Frain was able to show caring and compassion for those hundreds of families he served. WKVI would like to pass along condolences to the Frain family for the loss of this very inspirational community servant.
