aptain Franck Willis Tremaine of Jackson, CA, passed away suddenly on Saturday, January 10, 2015 at the age of 58. Franck was born in Tracy, CA on March 4, 1956, to the late Joan Carlisle (Willis) and Neil Henry Tremaine.
Franck Tremaine was a loving husband, father, uncle, brother, and a leader in our community. Franck was very instrumental in the development of many careers of young, aspiring firefighters. He was the man everyone turned to in their times of need, and was looked upon for his strength. Captain Tremaine selflessly devoted himself to the fire service in California, with over forty years of dedication, and a majority of those as a volunteer.
Franck never tired of tending to his son Kyle’s special needs, and we will remember how he always made sure Kyle was fully included in our family and community life. Franck’s gentleness was evident in how he treated everyone he met. He entertained us and loved us. He made us laugh and made us feel secure. He lived a genuine and authentic life, and showed honest goodness, kindness, and concern for others day in and day out.
Franck is survived by his wife of 35 years; Geneva Lillie (Bergen) Tremaine, daughter; Sarah Jean (Tremaine) Hart of Valley Springs, CA, son; Kyle Franck Tremaine of Jackson, CA, and three sisters; Cathy Louise Simms of Jackson, CA, Laura Suzeanne Tremaine of Sacramento, CA, and Chris-Anne Tremaine of Fiddletown, CA.
