It is with deeply felt gratitude that we will always remember Frank, for all the Love, Caring and Concern he bestowed upon our Mom, his wife Mary.
With Frank I knew that our Mom would always be safe and protected, even during the fierce Hurricanes. I did worry for Frank however, kayaking as a guide in the Everglades, amazed at his fearlessness.
When visiting in Cape Coral, my husband George and I always received wonderful advice from Frank on where to go, what to see and do. Together with Frank we visited Dancing Waters, the Shell Factory and the Veterans Memorial, extra special for George as a fellow Veteran.
Frank and I enjoyed looking at his collection of finds, from fossil hunting to antiques to paintings.
My sister Linda recently shared with me many stories of how helpful and kind Frank was to her when she lived in Hartsdale NY.
Rest in Peace Frank. Thank You for your brave Service to our Country and your many kindnesses to our Family.

Grandpa Frank,

I will always cherish our memories together with Grandma Mary. Our special times together in Florida when I’d come to visit and we would go walking to see the burrowing owls and discount shopping. You always knew the best deals!! You were one of the strongest men I know and I’m so thankful you were in my life. Love you always and forever. Annie

My memories of Grandpa are very simple: a hard working, passionate figure of strength who never waned in support of his family and soldiered on even when times were tough. Over the past few years Grandpa and I developed a special bond. I will always treasure the memories of our trips to Five Guys for a "heavy" hot dog and a Dr. Pepper, listening to stories of adventures from his past, and watching golf on TV. Grandpa I promise to take good care of your faithful little dog, Guy. I know he misses you so much too. God bless you.
All my Love, James

I am remembering my father in law , Frank, with the utmost respect and admiration. He was the epitome of a renaissance man who proudly served his country and his community. He was a dedicated conservationist/outdoorsman, entrepreneur, artist, talented photographer, traveler, tinkerer, and collector. I could go on, but, more than anything he was a loving and giving man who always taught his family about the importance of sticking together.
Honorable, proud and loyal; he never forgot a phone call on my birthday and on Mother's Day. I will never forget his kind words of comfort to me when we said good-bye to his son/my husband. I am so grateful to be part of your wonderful family. Rest in eternal peace Dad. You are so loved and will be greatly missed.
