    I remember Frank as a great neighbor to my grandparents who lived across the street for many, many years. We would cut thru his yard to get to the lake back in the day. Coincidentally Frank will be resting peacefully across from my grandfather as he is laid to rest.
    Thoughts to the family

    I was so sad to hear of Uncle Frannys passing. He was the Sweetest person I have ever known. I was lucky enough to have him as my godfather. He was so kind and the most loyal friend to our dad. Last year I had come in from NC to sit with my dad and Uncle Franny unexpectedly walked into visit just like he always did. He could light up a room. I was so fortunate to have that moment in time with them both. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    I was around 12 years old when he came to my fathers house where his wife’s father (my uncle Joe) lived. What I remember the most about him is that each time he came over to the house he took the time to talk to me and ask how I was doing and in a caring way. Later when he use to come to my Uncle Joe’s house he would help me with many of my problems with all the cheap cars I had as a teenager. Taking out that time for someone he did not know speaks a lot of his character in life and how his children followed in his footsteps. I am glad that I only have good thoughts when I think of Franny!
