Frank Schimpf has been battling Lung cancer since March of 2017. He's been surrounded in his battle by his loving children - Frank Jr, Lisa and Tammy, along with this brother John and numerous other family members. 3 years ago, Frank lost the love of his life when his wife Joanne passed away. Soulmates, they met in Kindergarten, never dated anyone else and were happily married for 46 years!!!
Sadly, cancer has been present in the Schimpf family as Frank and his brother John have had to watch both of their sisters lose their lives to this horrible disease. Julie at the age of 40 and Joanie at the age of 48.
Frank's brother John was Tom and Bill's boss at Party Villa, a Chicago area banquet hall, where they worked for him as busboys and servers when they were teenagers. They've remained friends ever since. John has been a participant and frequent contributor of sports memorabilia for the BTB event for many years.
We're honored and happy we can now help John's brother and his family in their time of need.
The Schimpf family would like to thank the BTB Foundation and their numerous friends and family for their love and support!
