Frank James Mantell

With great sorrow, we announce the passing of Frank J. Mantell, on 06/19/24. Frank was a true patriot and veteran that was hardworking and charitable. He always put the needs of others ahead of his own. He will be greatly missed.

Frank joined the Navy in 1959. He served in the Vietnam War, for which he was awarded a Navy Commendation Medal. He retired as a Senior Chief Boatswains Mate and a Saturation Diver in 1979. After his retirement, he dove into the oil industry, where he worked for several companies in Louisiana. This is where he met and fell in love with Patricia. They flew off to Vegas and married on April 6th, 1985, and have been going strong for 39 years!

Frank was predeceased by his parents, Elenore Bieder and Walter Bieder Sr. and siblings Janet (Mike) Chatlos, Galen (Diane) Mantell and Gary (Gayle) Bieder.

Frank is a faithful member and elder of Faith Lutheran Church and is also a member of Kiwanis in Hot Springs Village.
