On February 8, 2017 of Fort Washington, MD, beloved husband of Sarah Krtanjek (States) for 52 years. Devoted father of Frank Krtanjek, III, (Fort Washington, MD), and Michelle Krtanjek (Mt.

Frank was heavily involved in the Oxon Hills Boys and Girls from 1975 to 1983 where his footprint was in mentoring and inspiring local boys and girls in sportsmanship, respect and teamwork.
