Frank was born on April 10, 1943, at Hanover to Frank and Irene (Bond) Jandera. In 1961, he graduated from Hanover High School where he still holds the longest standing school track record. He proudly served in the United States Navy. He worked as a regional service manager for a copier company when living in Denver and then retired home to Hanover. He was a member of St. John’s Catholic Church, the Hanover Knights of Columbus, and the Hanover American Legion. Frank always looked forward to carrying flags during the Days of ’49 parades for the Legion. Whenever he wasn’t working, you could always find him hunting or fishing. Whether it was in Kansas woods and farm fields, down on a Little Blue sandbar, in Gothenberg, NE, or houseboating on Lake Powell, he loved spending time in the outdoors. Frank also enjoyed spending Thanksgiving with his Imming cousins in the Colorado mountains. He loved lazy Sundays at the river with the Jueneman’s, playing cards at the dinner table, and having a beer on the deck. Frank is being buried in his “farming” clothes. This was his everyday attire he enjoyed wearing while fighting his arch nemesis – the thistles and cedar trees at his pasture. He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Rob Jandera; sister, Liz Doyle; and brother-in-law, Les Laue. Survivors include children, Matt (Amy) Jandera, Hanover, Katie (Matt) Wentland, Denver, and Jake Jandera, Hanover; sister, Annie Laue, Hanover; and two grandchildren, Avery and Sawyer. Frank will be remembered as a genuine person, always willing to help and always good for a joke or wisecrack. He wore out his famous poppy filled cowboy hat doing all of the things he loved in life. A memorial fund is established to St. John’s Catholic Church, St. John's Catholic School, Hanover Rural Fire Department (FD10), and Hanover American Legion. Contributions may be sent in care of Hanover Mortuary. Committal of Frank Jandera To order memorial trees or send flowers to the family in memory of Frank E.
