Frank W. McCrea was born on November 6 1942 to Ruby Neville McCrea and James W.

McCrea in Loveland, Colorado.

He was active in the Masonic Lodge and became an Eagle Scout. Frank raised

registered Angus cattle with his grandfather west of Loveland. His family also made

cherry cider from a facility on the farm. One of Frank's duties was to deliver the cider to

the road side businesses.

He graduated from Loveland High School and got a four-year degree from Colorado State University.

After graduating, he married his high school sweetheart Donna Rice in

1965. Years later he went back to school and earned a master's degree from the

University of Denver.

Frank started his career in livestock publishing at the Dakota Farmer in Aberdeen, SD

by selling advertising. In 1982, he became the publisher of the Wyoming Stockman

Farmer magazine in Cheyenne, WY. Around 1990, he moved to Colorado to head the

Colorado Country Life magazine.

He is survived by his wife Donna and two daughters: Kimber Wichmann of Cheyenne

WY; and Pamela Frye of Topeka KS. He is also survived by three grandchildren.

Jesse Nation, Jenna Wichmann, and Justin Wichmann.
