Frank Leonard Jarmusz Jr., 89, operated Appliance Parts Distributors | Featured Obituaries
Mr. Jarmusz retired as President of the company in 1994. The company was sold to a venture capital group in 2006.
Mr. Jarmusz served on the board of directors of the Appliance Parts Distribution Association, and the conventions of that group, as well as those of appliance manufacturers, guided Jarmuszes around the world including Hong Kong, Australia and Hawaii, and Tucson, Phoenix and New Orleans.
For 30 years, the couple hibernated at his home at the PGA National Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, of which he was a part. As an avid golfer, he was “so proud of the hole-in-one at the PGA National in his 70s,” said his son Robert.
Mr. Jarmusz was also a member of the Brookfield Country Club.
He loved welcoming friends and his growing family to visit the couple’s Florida home.
In retirement, he and his wife continued to travel. Her son David said, “He was a reluctant world traveler but listened to my mother” and took the family on a cruise to Norway, Finland and Russia. “He had a great time.”
The couple were extremely close before being separated by the restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“There was nothing my father did without my mother; it was heartwarming,” said Maureen Wydysh.
Until a few years ago, the couple continued their annual road trip with friends to their favorite New York wineries.
