Frank L. Dittmeier III, 79, died peacefully at Carnegie Village on August 8, 2020. Frank was born January 20, 1941 to Frank L. Dittmeier Jr. and Rosemary (Costello) Dittmeier. He was raised in St. Louis, Mo., went to Christian Brothers College for high school and received degrees from Washington University and Maryville College. He moved to Kansas City in 2001. He was employed by the Internal Revenue Service and retired in 2012.
After Frank completed active duty in the Air Force he served in the Air National Guard for 21 years.
He was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his sister Holly Jordan (Rod) of Jonesboro Arkansas, and his brothers Bob Dittmeier (Barbara) of Richmond Virginia and Bill Dittmeier (Georgia) of Kansas City and many nieces and nephews.
Frank was a jack of all trades, he could repair anything and enjoyed collecting tools. Frank was an avid reader, history was his favorite topic. He will be remembered for his quick wit and unique sense of humor. His most enjoyable time was the time he spent with Joan Johnson, his best friend and traveling companion. They shared many happy times together, including activities with their wine club.
The family would like to thank the staff at Villa Ventura. We appreciate the care and support Frank received from the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorder Center at the University of Kansas. We are particularly thankful for his caregivers at Carnegie Village and Asana Hospice Care for providing compassionate care in his final days.
