His daughter Helen Huppuch and niece Sarah Huppuch were at his side while his sister Helen Mulry held his hand. Frank’s wife of 55 years, Marie Jean Huppuch, predeceased him by six months. Born in New Rochelle, New York on June 15,1943, while his family lived in Larchmont, New York, Frank was the third of seven children of Winfield A. S. Huppuch II and Helen McMahan Huppuch. Shortly thereafter, the family moved to Peekskill, New York w here Frank attended Burt’s Preschool and then went on to Uriah Hill Elementary, Drum Hill Middle School and Peekskill High School. Frank was a fine student and athlete and fun to be with. The summer before graduating from high school, Frank spent a summer in Koblenz, Germany working on a farm and living at a monastery with his two older brothers. After graduating, he spent the next summer in Guadalajara, Mexico living with a family and studying Spanish. In the fall of that year, Frank attended the University of Arizona. There he married Marie Ushinski of Nanticoke, PA. After receiving his Bachelors degree, the newly married couple returned east where Frank took a job with Union Carbide and Marie went on to become a psychiatric nurse. After bringing their daughter Helen into the world, the couple moved to Danvers, Massachusetts. From 1972 to 1980 Frank owned and operated Huppuch & Ring Real Estate in Lynn. Later they moved to Boxford, Massachusetts and Frank worked in banking and eventually in health care services. Always kind and thoughtful, Frank enjoyed people and readily shared his often offbeat sense of humor and his love of life with everyone. He was a philosopher, a thinker and an artist. He liked frequenting estate sales, auctions and flea markets looking for all kinds of treasures while joyfully interacting with all the people. Frank collected artwork and artifacts from the Middle East and Asia as well as from all over the world. His strong spiritual core came out in all his interactions and could be found in his own creative drawings, writings and sculptures.
