Obituary: Frank P. Kiefor

Frank P. Kiefor, age 73, resident of Lansing, Illinois, passed away on Monday, August 22, peacefully at Community Hospital in Munster, Indiana. He is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Dorothy (Kaesberg) Kiefor, his four children: Ken (Vanessa), April (Nick), Mike (Colleen), Pete; his seven grandchildren: Jenna, Zach, Jacob, Jessi, Callie, Michael, Matthew; and three great grandchildren: Addison, Jonny, and Zoey. Frank is also survived by his sister Mary Jo and many extended family members. Frank is preceded in death by his parents Peter and Madge Kiefor.

Frank worked for the United States Post Office as a letter carrier and became union president of NALC Branch 4016 over the course of his 50-year career. He honorably served his country in the United States Air Force. Frank loved to travel — his favorite locations included Las Vegas, Laughlin, and Alaska. Frank loved to coach little league baseball, culminating in an election to the Lansing Little League Hall of Fame over his 34 years of coaching, which included an Illinois State Championship title in 2001 with his Lansing East team. Frank spent many years dedicated to his community including volunteering at the Lansing Food Pantry and Mended Hearts, and he also served as a Eucharistic minister.

  1. I am so sorry to hear this sad news. I am unable to attend Frank’s Celebration, but please know you are in my thoughts and prayers, and may God hold Frank in the palm of His hand.

  2. My condolences. I knew Frank when we volunteered picking up food together for the Lansing Food Pantry in their van.
