Frank Malinowski Jr

Frank Malinowski JR, age 79, passed away February 2, 2017 in Meridian Idaho.  Frank was born in Detroit Michigan to Frank & Elizabeth Malinowski.  Frank grew up in Detroit with an engineering mind, and love of music.  Jazz in particular.

He attended college at Lawrence Institute of Technology in Michigan where he acquired three separate engineering degrees.  His first engineering job was at Ford Motor Company in Detroit.  From there he went on to work and design at Ling-Tempco-Vought.

While working and living in Detroit he caught the eye and ear of a beautiful brunette, Beverly, as he played piano at a local club.  They were married in Detroit and had two sons.

Frank’s engineering career took him to Envirco in New Mexico.   The family moved to Albuquerque in 1973.  Frank, Beverly and their sons thrived on the culture and scenes of the Southwest, and have fond memories and friendships of their time there.

In 1985 the family moved to Boise, Idaho where Frank accepted a position at Santa-Clara Plastics.  It was from here he would retire.

Frank & Beverly have belonged to University Christian Church since 1985 and more recently Parkview Christian Church.  Frank was part of the choir and also volunteered his knowledge to any maintenance items needing repair.

Frank loved all Detroit sports, especially the Red Wings where his family had friendships with players of the time.  He also enjoyed bird hunting, handball, and all things engineering.  There wasn’t a problem he couldn’t solve.  Frank treasured road trips with his wife, and attending all sporting events his grandkids were in.

Frank was preceded in death by his parents, Frank & Elizabeth Malinowski, and his younger brother Dave Malinowski.  He is survived by his wife Beverly, his two sons, Darrin (Deida), Brian, and his grandchildren Ike & Laine Malinowski.

A private service was held in his honor.  In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made in Frank’s memory to the Assistance League of Boise.  A local philanthropic program supported by Frank and Beverly.
