I certainly miss those days we had, 1968-1977.... I remember camping in your back yard listening to the short wave radio. You introduced me to Led Zeppelin, Three Dog Night and Cheech n Chong on your cassette tape player; we built model cars, played ping pong and baseball. We both canvassed our neighborhood on our bikes bringing havoc to the new houses being built, and we rode to school together in my Blue Volkswagen Beetle when we were 16... time moved forward we went different ways in SR high at Northeast. You worked very hard and spent many hours at Piggly Wiggly after school and on weekends while I worked on Varsity Baseball and Football. You always had more confidence in me than I did myself. I remember very clearly when you asked me on day " Mikie when you become a professional athlete will you remember me" ? WELL Frankie I never became a professional athlete but here today and always, I will remember you! You were a great childhood friend!!! Thanks buddy for the fond memories!

Frank was one of my favorite people on earth. He was always smiling, always happy to see us. Some of Mike and mines best times were over at Frank and Brendas house just hanging out, laughing, eating, talking about everything and nothing. Mike, Dylan, and I will miss seeing your smiling face.

Frank was a good
Friend all the way from 5th grade til we graduated in 1977 at Northeast High School. Very friendly man and never met a stranger or had anything bad to say about anyone. God received a Good Man in heaven and I am sure his Reward was immediate when he passed ... Frank was a person that left impact on people with his out look on life and big smile
He always had ... healing for the family ...
