Frank Kranitz has been a familiar face for fifteen years at the Senior Center. Before that, he was a mechanic at a trucking company. After a back injury, he had to find a different line of work. Kranitz is extremely dedicated, he's driven and needs to be and feel useful. Some fellow mechanics (jokingly) complained that he made them look bad and told him to slow down. He's planning to get back into mechanical work. He enjoys working on cars. He will miss the aspect of working around so many people, but he will still have control of his schedule, which is important to him. His life has meaning when he finds work that works for him.
