Dr. Francis “Frank” Whitlow, age 89, of Stanton, passed away at home on July 18, 2020 under the loving care of his family and Spectrum Health Hospice.

Frank was a man of many talents, early in life he played the trumpet and enjoyed playing big band music. He studied the art of calligraphy and had a passion for old cars and could tell you the exact make and model of a car when he saw one, and in his lifetime owned 53 cars and could list each of them. After high school, Frank attended Wayne State University for the mortuary science program and then on to Eastern Michigan University for his undergraduate degree and to Chicago to finish medical school.

In June of 1959, he married Nancy Ruselvan in Pontiac and together they enjoyed over 44 years of marriage until her death in 2003.
