Francis "Frank" Fucheck
December 2, 1933 – November 20, 2018
Francis “Frank” Fucheck of the Woodlands, Texas passed away at the age of 84 on November 20, 2018 after suffering from a stroke. Frank was born in North Tarrytown, New York on December 2, 1933 to Stephen and Agnes Fucheck and was the second youngest of seven children.
Frank developed a love of sports in High School and went on to earn a football scholarship to the University of Tampa in Tampa, Florida. While attending UT, he was President of his fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, and was an offensive lineman on the football team that went on to play in the Cigar Bowl. During college, he answered the call to serve our Country in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Europe after the Korean War. He then returned to UT to complete his Bachelor of Science degree in 1959, and to meet the love of his life – Jane Bradley. Frank graduated, married Jane on June 25, 1960 and then moved to Texas as fast as they could.
Frank began his very successful career in sales with Jim Walters Corp. Tired of the traveling and time away from his wife, Frank made the move to Allstate Insurance Company in 1963 where all of Frank’s clients were in “good hands with Frank Fucheck”. Frank enjoyed a very successful 38-year career with Allstate and as he and Jane had their children - Bill, Lynn and Glen - he became involved in the community through volunteering at the Northwest YMCA, maintaining various Board positions with St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church and was a longtime member of the Knights of Columbus. When he was not cheering on his children during one of their various sporting events, Frank could be found on the golf course with a regular Saturday morning tee time or bowling in his regular league on Thursday nights. Frank and Jane enjoyed numerous trips in and out of our great country and the home that Frank provided for his family was constantly filled with friends, family, laughter and legendary parties.
Frank was proceeded in death by his parents Stephen and Agnes Fucheck, his sisters Anna Koval and Helena George and his brothers Stephen Fucheck and Maximilan Fucheck. Frank is survived by his wife of 58 years Jane Bradley Fucheck, his sister Agnes Jackman, his brother Father Robert Fucheck, his sons William Francis (“Bill”) Fucheck (Melinda), Glen Bradley Fucheck (Kelly) and daughter Lynn Marie Ray (Gregory). Frank was especially proud of his grandchildren and “PawPaw” loved Bradley and Morgan Fucheck, Bennett Ray and Tomas and Lillian Fucheck with every inch of his big heart.

Jane—you and your kids and grandkids are in my thoughts and prayers. Now that Frank has “connections”, I’m hoping he’ll help get out Texans to the Super Bowl! Take care of yourself and if I can help, I’m just next door.

God, I hope there’s a TV somewhere in heaven and that there are no cars to drive. That way, we can be sure Frank is happy and all of the angels and saints are safe! Jane, I just know Frank, Will, Bobbie and Tom are all tapping their feet, waiting for the rest of us, so the party can get started. Frank was a big guy with a big heart and we will all miss him. Deepest condolences, my friend, and much love.

You are in our thoughts and prayers. We are saddened hearing of Franks passing, but are sure he is already with our loving God. If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know.
Glad to hear my early Christmas card found its way to you and perhaps brought a little smile to your face.
I didn’t get your message until late Saturday night. Will give you a call soon
