The News Editorial: Gone but not forgotten
August 4, 2022
The loss of Commissioner Fred Frandson this week brought back thoughts of the late Dale Wagner, whom Frandson was appointed to replace after Wagner’s passing in 2016.
Both had a strong love of Washakie County, were active in their community and their presence has been and will be missed.
Frandson was seeking a second full term as county commissioner. Win or lose he would have still been active in the community and working to make Washakie County better. He may not have been born here but this was his home, his family’s home.
He was passionate about a great many things including the fair and rodeo, the new library and most recently passionate about making sure emergency medical services became recognized as essential services.
His presence with the county and in the community will truly be missed.
Our thoughts and prayers here at the Northern Wyoming News go out to his wife, his children, his grandchildren, his employees, his coworkers in the county and his friends.
