OBITUARY

Frank Allen Gile

October 1, 1947July 28, 2019

Frank Allen Gile, 71, of Lee’s Summit, Missouri passed away on July 28, 2019. He was born on October 1, 1947 in Galesburg, Illinois to Frank M. and Jane L. Gile. He was preceded in death by his parents and nephew Christopher Wilson. He is survived by his wife of 43 years and his angel on earth, Maxi Gile, as well as daughters Amber (Ryan) Arbuckle, Ashley (Brock) Reasoner, grandchildren Nathan, Collin, Cohan, Aubrey, and Ryker, his sisters Diana (Doug) Stewart, Cindy (Mike) Mosbauer, Cathy (Joseph) Pec, JoAnna (Jack) Beal, Mother-In-Law Louise Woody and sister and brother in-laws, Linda (Mike) Gerding, Ron Woody, Brad Barber, Susan (Andy) Kendig, and Judy (Wray) Joiner.

Frank was surrounded by those he loved and who loved him at the time of his passing. He had such a kind and loving heart. He was easy to talk with, fast to laugh with, and had an incredible wit to match his extreme intelligence. His family and grandchildren were the center of his life. Watching all of his grandchildren’s sporting events was the highlight of his days. Frank was proud to serve our country as a military intelligence officer in the United States Army during the Vietnam Era. Frank was involved in his local churches serving as an elder but was mostly passionate about outreach ministries, going on mission trips to Guatemala and Haiti. He loved fishing, going to the movies, the Lake of the Ozarks, traveling the world, and skiing the Rockies with his wife, Maxi. Frank was also a proud Eagle Scout and a Sigma Tau. Frank loved all sports, but especially the Chiefs and Royals. Frank was extremely successful in his career in both sales and management positions in the automotive and large equipment industries. There will never be enough words to describe how much he will be missed by his family and friends. Although we know he is whole again, and we take comfort in that, the void left behind in our lives will never be filled. His generous spirit lives on as an organ donor.

May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun strike warm upon your face, and until we meet again may the Lord hold you in the palm of his hand. – An Irish Blessing

In lieu of flowers, Frank would appreciate memorial contributions to the Veteran Community Project AKA Tony Houses for Veterans. Donations can be made at www.veteranscommunityproject.org.

Maxi and family, our hearts break for you. We are so sad and sorry to hear of Frank’s passing. He had such a sweet and caring spirit and always had a smile on his face. We thank God for placing us in the same church and giving us the opportunity to know him and his friendship. Maxi, we pray you feel God’s peace that passes understanding as you grieve. We will, unfortunately, not be able to attend his services, but know we are thinking and praying for you all. We love you!

So sorry to hear of Frank's passing. Always a very friendly, fun guy...always willing to share a conversation, a beer, a laugh. He will be missed by everyone who knew him, no matter if they knew him a long time, a short time, knew him well, or knew him a little. My love and condolences to all of his family.

Frank has always been one of my favorite people. He always had a smile on his face and a genuine loving attitude. I love his heart for other people and that he was such a hard working family man. I’ll always cherish the memory of when he stole my chocolate ice cream! I never let that one down and he loved joking about it with me. I’ll miss Frank very much.

Never had the pleasure of meeting Frank but I grew up next door to Maxie and I know if she loved him he must have been a wonderful man. I am so sorry you have lost the love of your life Maxie. All my love, Karen

Big brother. You are brave beyond words. Talking, laughing, loving .... there’s no way to talk about you in the past tense. So I won’t. We will always be the Gile five and from us five we are ... what number I’ve lost count. ALOT. And we will keep talking and laughing and loving. And when we get a chance, we’ll dance. 💕💖💝💗

Your forever sis Cathy Sue

Frank made each of us feel special, as if he saw something beautiful in us we weren't even aware of. He was a gem, but "a diamond in the rough" who didn't try to hide his flaws. I'm glad my son had his example of how to be a strong man who kept his heart gentle and his eyes fixed on God.
