Michael Terry Frenger, 64, of Verona, passed away Tuesday evening, November 21, 2017 at his home.  He was born March 4, 1953 in Staunton, son of the late Bruce Willard Frenger, Jr. and Nancy Joan Hamilton Frenger.

Michael retired in 2015, as a Supervisor with the Virginia Department of Transportation after 38 years of service. He was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, Waynesboro.  A U. S. Air Force veteran of the Viet Nam Era, he served from 1971-1976.

He enjoyed being with his family, especially during the holidays, helping his neighbors, walking his grand-dog, and spending time with his cats. He was a true nature lover.  He looked forward to riding motorcycles and taking his MG to car shows and was the “Grillmaster” at family cookouts.  His green thumb could be seen around his yard.
