Frank Theodore Kroboth

November 1, 1942 - September 23, 2018

Frank Theodore Kroboth,75, passed away unexpectedly at home September 23, 2018 with his devoted wife Carol by his side.

Frank was born November 1, 1942 in Great Falls, Montana to the late Charles and Helen O’Leyer Kroboth.

He spent his early years between Spokane, WA and Great Falls, MT before joining the Marines and then attending college at Gonzaga and Cornell Universities. After moving to the Norfolk, VA area to raise his family and work in the food industry with Camelia, Giant Open Air, and Pepsi, he found his passion as a brilliant financial tax advisor and international consultant.  He opened Kroboths International Consultants over 30 years ago.

He was a dedicated member of the Woodstock Lions Club for 50 years and served as a District Governor and Chairman Council of Governors for the state of Virginia.  Through the Lions Club he hosted 29 international exchange students through the years.  Frank led an adventurous and colorful life with grand stories and always had a joke to tell for every occasion.  He was larger than life with his charismatic personality and will be remembered by everyone that got the opportunity to meet him.

Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife of 38 years, Carol Redden Kroboth; daughter Kimbrooke Pavlich with her husband Bryan along with their daughters, Aidan and Brecklen; daughter Carrie Kroboth and her daughter Kennedy; and daughter Dawn Martinez with her husband Mike along with their children Kirsten, Ethan, Christopher and Cameron.  Frank also leaves a sister, Judy Hendrickson along with her husband Ron; brother, Robert Kroboth; brother-in-law Bob Redden; brother-in-law John Redden along with his wife Karen and their son John; and brother-in-law Joe Redden. He will also be missed by his adopted children, Donna Tanega and Jack Fulton, and a host of friends that he called family.
