Born in 1924, Frankie Wiemerslage, along with his brothers, Roland and Harold, and sister Audrey grew up in River Grove when it was populated by the families of early German settlers, who had flocked to the area. The family had long ties to the community, and their grandfather, Frank, was a longtime police chief known to ride his bicycle around the village until a motorcycle and sidecar were purchased.
