Uncle Frank, when I was little I have lots of happy memories including weekends at Gunpowder Swim Club and chocolate Easter bunnies with dollar bill bow ties. When I was older it was slurping raw oysters on chilly afternoons and enjoying your apple strudel and spritz cookies at the holidays. You were a man of strong conviction and stubborn to a fault...definitely a Schaub trait! As I grew older I came to see you as a teddy bear...sometimes a little gruff on the outside, a little fuzzy on top (back when you had your crew cut), but with a huge, tender heart. You taught me loyalty, commitment, and unfailing dedication to your loved ones. I know you are at peace now, alongside Aunt Vern, Baba, and Pop-Pop in the eternal grace of God. Thank you for being a wonderful Godfather and a blessing in my life.

Love you, Uncle Frank. Thanks for teaching me to play golf and to drive a stick shift, and for everything else. You were always totally dependable, and it was a pleasure to see you open up and become more laid back in the latter part of your life. It was also a pleasure to share a Galliano (or three!) with you and the rest of the family at the holidays. Peace to you.

I fondly remember Mr. Fred Schaub. He hired me in 1985 to work for him in the International Material Office at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD. He was a good mentor, boss and shared many stories of his time at Martins working on aircraft and the space program. Many of the friends I have today were from the good old days of working in Bldg 314, he gave me a wonderful opportunity to work with talented hard working people who tested all the material that gave our soldiers the best equipment in the world. Thank you Fred, you will be missed. Tom
