Frank was an avid NASCAR fan and Mark Martin was his driver. He was an enthusiastic Detroit sports fan and absolutely loved his Michigan Wolverines. He enjoyed camping, including many trips to Mackinaw Island, Cedar Point and NASCAR races. He loved going out to breakfast with family and friends and was always the last to finish eating. Frank spent most of his career in quality control for various auto manufacturing companies and, although he was technologically savvy at work, he refused to use a cell phone and collected hundreds of vinyl record albums.
Along with his parents, Frank and Nina Breiner, he was preceded in death by his brother Eric Breiner. He is survived by his sister Deb (Jim) Rathbun, brother Kurt Breiner, sister-in-law Koleti Breiner, nieces and nephews Carl (Sandra) and Paul (Brittany) Rathbun, Stephanie, Cordelia and Frank Breiner.
