Frank Louis (F.L.) Schrunk was born May 31, 1941, in the hospital in Battle Creek, Iowa, the son of Herbert and Lela (Otto) Schrunk. When F.L. was just a toddler, his mother passed. Later his father married Sylvina Mary Schimmer who then raised the family along with Herb. F.L. grew up on the farm and first attended Danbury Catholic School. He graduated from Danbury High School with the class of 1960. After high school he worked at IBP in Denison, Iowa.
On November 9, 1963, F.L. married Jane Gosch at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Danbury. The couple farmed east of Danbury and later moved to the family farm south of town. It was there that they continued farming and raised their three children. F.L. farmed both in grain and livestock production and was still farming in 2015 with the support of his son.
