I worked with Frank at Southwestern Bell, such a nice guy. I remember he liked to joke around and have fun. He made some wonderful BBQ, he catered a couple of events for me over the years. Another good man gone way to soon. Prayers to all of his family and friends during this time. RIP Frank you will be missed.

Frank and I were cousins. His mom and my dad were brother/sister. As kids, we saw each other frequently and became "buds"...not brothers but very close! Our families went on vacations and shorter trips together. In later years, we saw each other infrequently, but since 2014, we had rekindled our relationship. I will miss being able to pick up the phone and talk to him. I will miss him at family gatherings. He loved life. Being around Frank made everyone feel good. May God bless Linda, John and Alicia and all their families and hold them close!

I was honored to be Frank's cousin 68 of his years. He was a wonderful guy full of love and joy and laughter. He was a bit of a prangster when we were kids. I will always cherish the reunion we had at Frank and Linda's 6 years ago. What a blessing to have been with all of you. Frank will be missed so very much. May God grant you peace during this time. I love you all and our Frank.
