Frank X. Metzger II

Heaven has gained another angel, and the world has lost a wonderful friend, husband, father and grandfather. Frank X Metzger II, passed away February 3, 2024 after a very quick battle with cancer. He will be greatly loved and missed by his family and friends.

Frank was born in Huntington, Indiana, November 25, 1948, the second of five children of Frank and Mary (Stouffs) Metzger.  After graduating from Huntington Catholic High School, he started college at the University of Dayton, was a part of ROTC, and also served in the Army Reserves.

He married the love of his life Caroline McCreary, in August 1972, and lived in Dayton.  Five years to the day later, his son Ryan was born.  They moved back to Huntington in 1981, where he could be close to the family and worked for Huntington Mutual Insurance.  

In 1985, Caroline and Frank moved to Noblesville, where his entrepreneurial spirit blossomed, building several businesses, and eventually procuring a US patent for a computer program during his time working with Experian.  Frank and Caroline were active in the church at First United Methodist, playing guitar and flute for the acoustic Christian bluegrass “dirt band.”  As soon as the snow melted in the spring, you could see Frank working in the yard every weekend tending to the lawn and gardens he so loved.

Frank Metzger was a wonderful man, the definition of a good guy who would do anything to help someone else.  

Frank’s family was the center of his life, and his memory will be treasured by all. Besides his wife of 51 plus years, Caroline, son, Ryan (Kristin) Metzger of Gahanna, Ohio; grandchildren, Brendan Polenchar, Leo Metzger, and Hudson Metzger; and siblings, Barbara (Bill) Giese, Josephine (Vince) Parker, Mary (Greg) Pfister, and John (Kelly) Metzger.

Eternal rest grant onto him O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him.
