Frank L. Wickstrom, age 57 of Baldwin WI, died on Monday, July 18, 2016 at Hudson Hospital. Frank was born February 28, 1959 in Saint Paul MN to parents Thomas and Rosalia (nee Lopez) Wickstrom. Frank attended school in Saint Paul, and graduated from Humboldt High School. He furthered his education at Saint Paul Technical College where he earned a degree as a machinist.
Frank was involved with boxing as a younger man, but to anyone that knew him, he was a lovable character. Frank enjoyed time spent watching old movies and cooking shows. Frank loved to cook, and family and friends alike will miss his awesome fried tacos, a specialty which was a tradition in his family. Driven by a love for cars, Frank spent many years working as a mechanic. His skills were always in demand, and always available to any friends in need of help with a repair. Frank would help anyone out, anytime he could. He will be missed by many.

Griffin; step-son, Clinin Griffin; grandchildren, Jordyn Vann; Lilyann Griffin, Jovon Griffin, and Clinin Griffin Jr.; siblings, Mercedes Rosado, Felipe Rosado, Arturo Preciado, Elvira Preciado, and Carlos Preciado; a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
