Frank J. Fojt, III, was born to parents, Frank J. Fojt, Jr. and Milady (Gerzik) Fojt, on March 6, 1940, in Wilcox, Texas on a small family farm. His family shortly relocated to Snook, TX, where he continued to live and raise his family. During his childhood, he developed passions for agriculture, hunting, and fishing. He continued pursuing those passions into adulthood, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Poultry Science from Texas A&M University, Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of ’64. After graduation, he served in the United States, standing ready to fight for his country in Vietnam, if called upon. He retired from TAMU after his career of 36 years as an Agriculture Technician in the Soil & Crop Sciences Department.
“Little Frankie”, as referred to by many in his hometown, loved family, the simple country lifestyle, farming, and ranching. Any conversation with him included a story about hunting or fishing, raising crops, genetics, family get-togethers, loving Jesus, telling a joke, or about a prank he pulled in his younger years. All who knew him, knew he was never short on words, jokes, or stories. He also loved teaching and preparing the next generation. We, as his family, will always have memories of him as the most patient, kind, generous, and funny dad and grandpa.
He was preceded in death by his parents (mentioned above), brother: Allen Fojt of Houston, and grandchild: Garrett Fojt. He is survived by his children: Rebecca McCarty, of College Station, sons, Patrick Fojt of Snook and Chris Fojt of Navasota, seven grandchildren: Kendell, Jaycee, Wyatt, and Reid Fojt, Hannah, Madelynn, and Carter McCarty, two great-grandchildren: Chloe and Baylee Price, sister and brother-in-law, Bonnie and Jim Williams of Ruidoso, NM, sister-in-law, Peggy Fojt of Houston, and numerous nieces and nephews, all of whom he loved and cherished.
