Frank Lopez Huerta

February 28, 1927 - September 6, 2018

Frank L. Huerta, of Virginia Beach, passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 6, 2018 at the age of 91 years. He was born in Globe, Arizona on February 28, 1927, and went on to proudly serve his country in the U.S. Navy for 27 years. He always said that joining the Navy was the best decision he ever made and was very proud to be a veteran.


After retiring from the Navy, he had a tree service for many years, and then established Frank’s Lawn Service when it was no longer safe for him to climb trees. For many years, he maintained many plush yards in the Tidewater area making many lifelong friends along the way. Frank was not happy when he gave up his job at the age of 88, even though he still had projects he would have liked to have finished. He had an unbelievable work ethic.


Frank is survived by his wife Mary Fisher Huerta, who he celebrated 70 years of marriage with in March; brother-in-law Harry R. Fisher; three daughters, Patsy H. Nichols of Churchville, VA; daughter Lisa S. Bradshaw and her husband Denis of Virginia Beach; and Mary H. Paasch of Virginia Beach. He loved all his children and was especially proud of his grandchildren. He was always interested in visiting and he would be known to say “come early and stay late.”


His grandchildren are Matthew S. Remy and his wife Anna of Greenwood, VA; Kenneth J. Kostrzewa and his wife Melanie of New Orleans, LA; Julie E. Kostrzewa of Virginia Beach; and Laura M. McMillan and her husband Howie of Palmyra, VA; Malia D. Paasch of Norfolk; Holly P. Miller and her husband Dave of Gainesville, FL; Tyler D. Paasch of Virginia Beach; and Jenna E. Paasch, also of Virginia Beach. He is also blessed with six great-granddaughters Avery, Eliza, and Ivy Kostrzewa, and Megan, Caitlin, and Haley Remy. Further survived by other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his grandson Michael S. Remy.


A graveside service to celebrate Frank’s life will be held on Saturday, September 8, 2018 at Nimmo United Methodist Church Cemetery (2220 Princess Anne Rd. Virginia Beach, VA) at 10:00 AM with Dr. J. Scottie Griffin officiating. A reception at the church will follow the graveside service.
