Obituary

Frank E. Josenhans, III, left us to be a warrior for God on Thursday, January 27, 2011 at the age of 58 after losing his battle with brain cancer. We were blessed and privileged to share the same path he walked in his journey from this earth to everlasting peace. Frank was born at the Southernmost Point in Key West, FL on December 3, 1952.   He was the adored husband of Kathy-Lynn Carroll-Josenhans; beloved son of Frank E. and Thelma K. Josenhans, brother to Guy A. Josenhans, loving father to Mary Lynn Lyon, Christina A. Millar and Steven W. Priff, II; loving grandfather to Frank C. Meleca and Jasmine M. Vaglica. He leaves several nieces, nephews and friends he considered family including Eddie, Kurt, Bill and Paul. Frank was a Vietnam Era Navy Diver for six years. He was a Law Enforcement Officer for Daytona Beach Police Department before retiring from the Volusia County Sheriff’s office in 2000 as a Deputy Sheriff. Frank was employed by Volusia Motorcycle Training as a Rider Coach before his illness. He had the love of adventure in his heart and lived for the next motorcycle trip. Frank will be remembered for his kind heart, love of life and his awe-inspiring spirit. 12 Noon at VFW Post 3282 5810 South Williamson Blvd Port Orange, FL 32127 on February 5, 2011 (map/driving directions)

    Kathy,
    I am so sorry to hear about Frank. I know you are devastated as I lost Hershel on 1/15/11 to pancreatic cancer and know how you feel. All I can tell you is if I didn't have my faith to get me through this I would probably go crazy. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Just take one day at a time.

    Frank was such an awesome man who stood up for what was right! There aren't words to express how heartbroken we are for all of you. He was a great influence in Bob's life since he was 15. Bob looked up to him and enjoyed spending time with him, especially working on his bike! Frank will be greatly missed, but heaven gained a superior man! RIP Frank! We love you!

    Kathy,

    We are so sorry to learn of Frank's passing. I worked with Frank in the VCSO and my wife Donna knew him through the court system as a court clerk.

    I was happy to have a visit with both of you at the Daytona Airport a few short months ago when you were on your way out.

    He was truly "one of a kind" and will be missed by many. May your fond happy memories of him help to carry you through these next days and weeks.

    Respectfully submitted,

    Robert & Donna Dea

    My prayers and condolences to all of Frank's family. His love for his beloved Kathy and for his children and grandchildren was a blessing to see. His spirit and outlook on life (and death) were inspiring and unmatched. I've never seen anyone face an illness with such humor and introspection. I know he is dearly missed already. May God comfort each of you in your loss. Kathy, I love you and my heart is next to you every moment of this time.
