A memorial service for Donald Ehlers Frantz, a construction superintendent, will be held at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at the Salem United Methodist Church, 7901 Bradshaw Road in Upper Falls.

Mr. Frantz, who was 60 and lived in Kingsville, died Friday of lupus at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

He worked for J. Vinton Schaefer & Sons Inc. for the past 18 years and earlier for other contractors, starting as a carpenter.

In 1982, he received a craftsmanship award from the Building Congress and Exchange of Baltimore for his work on the McKeldin Fountain at the Inner Harbor.

Other projects he supervised included the remodeling of part of the Greater Baltimore Medical Center and the construction of Pier C at the Baltimore-Washington International Airport and of the Morris Mechanic Theater and adjacent Down Under parking garage.

Born in Baltimore, he was a graduate of the Kenwood High School and studied architectural drawing at the old Maryland Institute on Market Place.

Mr. Frantz served in the Navy during the Korean War and was a member of the Kingsville Post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

He is survived by his wife, the former Charlotte L. Graham; two sons, Navy Lt. Edward J. Frantz of Chesapeake, Va., and James R. Frantz of Kingsville; a brother, Herbert R. Frantz of Kingsville; and a sister, Nancy L. Mast of Kingsville.
