Gerald Paul Dicke, known as “Frank” to many of his friends thanks to his old CB radio handle, 64, of Red Wing, died Monday, August 9, 2021 at the Mayo Clinic, St. Mary’s Campus in Rochester.
He was born May 5, 1957 in Red Wing to Leonard and Burnetta (Kleiber) Dicke. He graduated from Red Wing Central High School in 1975 and went on to Austin Vocational Technical School in 1977.
