To Trudy and family and friends of LT Frank J. Kuserk,

On behalf of the United States Submarine Veterans - USSVI, please accept our sincere condolences at Frank’s passing. You and your loved ones are in our thoughts and prayers. May you find kindness to warm you, sympathy to comfort you, and cherished memories to bring peace to your heart.

We are forever grateful for Frank's service to our country in the United States Submarine service during and after WWII. He was a proud member of the Submarine Veterans of WWII (SVWWII). Frank served on the USS Cavalla (SS-244) and on the USS Gato (SS-212) for War Patrols 11-12-13. To our Brother of the Phin we say, “Sailor, rest your oar. We have the watch.”

“Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way.” 2 Thessalonians 3:16.

Kuserk, Frank J., LT, US Navy, now on Eternal Patrol -- Fair Winds and Following Seas to our departed shipmate. Frank’s record is posted online in the Eternal Patrol file on the USSVI website.

Rev. Ray Fritz, EM1(SS) - Acting National Chaplain United States Submarine Veterans, USSVI and assistant Carolina Piedmont Base, USSVI (803-619-1121), Raysabode@bellsouth.net

Love Kim, Joe, Jennifer, Jessica & Brian

It was my privilege to have met Frank just after he and Trudy married. What a handsome, kind, loving gentleman Frank always was. He would often tell me about things going on with his children and grands. Frank will be missed by many but his sweet spirit will remain in all of us who had the privilege of meeting him.
