Life Story

Frankie Jay McQueary, 58, of Elkhart, passed away in the emergency room at Elkhart General Hospital on Saturday, September 9, 2023, following a sudden illness.

Frankie was born in Franklin, IN on July 7, 1965, and was the son of Arvil J. “Jay” (Onie) McQueary and Brenda (Pedigo) McQueary. Jay and Brenda both precede Frankie in death as well as his son, Gage and a  brother, Eric. Stepmother Onie McQueary still survives in Elkhart. On June 9, 2009, Frankie married his sweetheart Kimberly R. “Kim” Jones, who survives him at home.

Frankie is also survived by his daughter Krystal M. (David) Tice of Vandalia, MI, his sons Frankie (Jamie) Ramirez of Edwardsburg, MI, Tony McQueary of Mishawaka and Josh Thompson of Elkhart; sisters Angie (Rodney Stemm) Ritchie of Elkhart and Tina (Brian) McQueary of Goshen; step-siblings Rex (Wilma) Ellsworth of Paducah, KY, Connie Martin of Edwardsburg and Donna (John) Troyer of Elkhart, and a loving host of grandchildren and extended family who will miss Frankie very much.

Frankie’s life will be honored at a graveside service on Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2023, at 2:00 pm at Prairie Street Cemetery.  Billings Funeral Home and Cremation Services of Elkhart have been assisting the family with arrangements.

Frankie was renowned for his hard work ethic and loyalty when he thought you were deserving of it. He spent most of his adult life at Forest River RV Manufacturers in a career that spanned several decades. He was also a very devout Harley Davidson aficionado and was very true to the “Biker” philosophy and lifestyle.

He also loved to spend time with his family and friends, (as any good biker should) and was a virtuoso when it came to throwing down on the outdoor grill. Folks would gather especially to be part of one of Frankie’s cookouts, and it was rumored that if you could get it to hold still on the grill long enough, Frankie would be able to cook it to perfection.
