Lewis (Lew) Martin Frumoff, 63, of North Fort Myers, died unexpectedly Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014, at his home. He was born March 1, 1950, to parents Nathan and Sylvia (Schneider) Frumoff in Brooklyn, N.Y. He attended City College in New York City earning a degree in electrical engineering. He moved to Florida where he invented an antibiotic to treat fish that was patented. That antibiotic was later used to develop some of the new generations of antibiotics prescribed for humans today. He then became the National Training Director at Whirlpool Corporation in St. Joseph, Mich., later moving to Illinois where he lived until 2005, relocating to Florida with his family.
He had a very strong Christian faith, and loved Jesus Christ, His Lord and Savior, with his whole heart. He was actively involved in the Kairos Prison Ministry in Southwest Florida, and became a Pentecostal minister reaching out and serving Christ in the community.
He is survived by his wife, Katherine (Kathy); sons, Victor and Peter Frumoff; daughter, Elizabeth Frumoff (Farrell Futral); his beloved little dog, Suzy; and brother, Bruce (Judy) Frumoff, all of Florida.
