Resided in Peshtigo, WI


Franklyn "Skip" Edward Zaroff, 84, of Peshtigo passed away Friday, Jan. 23, 2015 at his home after a long battle with lung cancer.
Frank was born on December 8, 1930 in Milwaukee to Ann Kirsch and Franklyn Zaroff. He was raised by his mom, Ann, and Step-dad, Charlie Chuppa. He married Marilyn Evancheck of Porterfield, Wis. on May 8, 1971 in Milwaukee. Frank was employed as a driver for A&P (Milwaukee) and LCL (Green Bay). His last job and his favorite was as a courtesy driver for LeMieux Toyota in Green Bay.
He was an avid Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badger fan and enjoyed a daily martini while relaxing in his lazy boy. He was happiest when feeding the birds in his backyard along the Oconto River and when playing with his pets, Pogo and Big Guy. Best of all, Skip could make you laugh.
Frank is survived by his wife, Marilyn of Peshtigo; his two sons, Michael Charles Zaroff of De Pere, Wis. and Dale Edward Zaroff of Sturgeon Bay, Wis.; two step-daughters, Karen Peterson and Maureen McCue; 3 sister-in-laws (Elsie Perez-Pelaez, Phyllis Krueger, and Mary Ann Evancheck); and 3 grandsons (Zach Zaroff, Zander Zaroff, and Nolan Zaroff), and many nieces and nephews.
He was proceeded in death by mother and father, Charles and Ann Chuppa; sister and brother-in-laws, Kathleen and Don Dequaine, Shirley and Dick Layton, David Evancheck, Dr. Mariano Perez-Pelaez, John Krueger, and sister-in-law, Ruth Evancheck.
Visitation will be held at Hansen-Onion-Martell funeral home in Marinette from 4 until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, January 27, 2015. A memorial service will follow at 6 p.m. with Deacon Jerome Thetreau officiating.
