Victor H. Frank, 89, of Mesa, Arizona formerly​ of Phoenix, entered into eternal life peacefully on December 21, 2016. Victor was born November 13, 1927 in Laurel, Montana. He was drafted into the Army in 1946, and was sent to Japan as a part of the occupation in 1947 where he was assigned to the MIA Program. He separated from the Army in 1962 with the rank of Captain. He married his wife Helen, in 1949, and they were married nearly 62 years when Helen passed away on January 7, 2011.
The couple moved to Denver, Colorado in 1950. Victor graduated from the University of Denver with his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. Vic had a successful career in banking. They moved back to Laurel in 1952 where he was a self-employed Public Accountant until 1962. He, his wife, and two children, Debra and Jeffrey moved to Phoenix, where their third child Rick was born. Vic accepted a Senior Credit and Financial Analyst position working with Valley National Bank from 1962 until the end of 1964. He then accepted a position with Pioneer Bank of Arizona as Vice President and Manager working with them from the beginning of 1965 until accepting a position as Executive Vice President and Chief Credit Officer with Thunderbird Bank. During this time he was also on the Board of Directors for the bank. He remained in this position until December 31, 1985 when he took an early retirement option when Thunderbird Bank was sold to Marshall and Ilsley Trust. After retiring from Thunderbird Bank he started Victor H. Frank and Associates which he operated for many years. During his career he served as the President of the Arizona Bankers Association from 1976 to 1977, and was Chairman of the President’s Advisory Committee on small business, being very active in the SBA program.
