Honor, Courage, Commitment, Confidence, Determination, Leadership, Teamwork, Loyalty, Sacrifice.. Semper Fidelis is Latin for "Always faithful". Not much more to say about Frank Olszewski, Jr. age 68, a United States Marine who passed away peacefully on Friday, January 8, 2016 at his residence surrounded by his loving family. Frank was a decorated Vietnam Combat Veteran who served his country proudly. Frank has many more traits and is known for as being a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. His greatest accomplishment of all is that he accepted Jesus as his Savior and was a man of God.

He was the son of the late Frank Olszewski, Sr. and Genevive Petrochevich.

Those left behind cherishing the memories of Frank are his wife of 23 years, Margaret Ann Olszewski; his daughter Kennedi Rae Duran of Stanley; his five sons and two daughters in law: Frank Paul Olszewski of Gastonia, David Duran of Stanley, Hosea Duran of Gastonia, Kevin and Angie Higdon of Hickory, Jack and Denise Higdon of Stanley.
