For my best friend and teacher. I love you Frankie and always will. I miss our daily morning talks more than words could ever express. I miss your spaghetti and our hundreds of bacon and egg breakfasts together. I will miss your words and love. You are the best friend a person could ever ask for. It was a privilege and an honor to be in your world. My sweet precious man...my “husband”.thank you for saving my life.

All us that were lucky enough to know Butch already know what kind of a man he was.
Just thought I mention that he was one of the few friends I ever had that never stold anything from me didn't try to sleep with my wife or girlfriend and never lost a super bowl bet we made. I was fortunate enough to spend time with him in July and although he didn't feel great we sure did laugh alot. I'll miss him immensely.

It was an every day conversation with my neighbor, brother , friend when I came home from work or just lounging around the house doing yard work. Frank had endless words when it came to #DALLASCOWBOYS , that's what I'm going to miss the most between him and I.
Frank was his own "" narrator""
When it came to Dallas cowboys in his own ways. He was looking forward to this next season and I'm more than positive it will never be the same as it were before. I will miss taking him plates of food during half time breaks while we would break down the first 2 quarters of the game. I hate that you left us so fast , I wish I could've told you that we were pregnant sooner just to see that wonderful smile of yours,
I know you would've been more excited for me than I would be for myself. Haha
I'm happy that I got to meet a genuine person like yourself 5 years ago.
You will be missed brother,

Frankie was an old relation for me. Always the first guy i saw at Egyptian. We shared common relatives and experiences. Our families went back over 70 yrs together. Hope his last time on earth was filled w happiness. He was a good guy. Sorry to his sisters for their loss.

Frank (Butch) was a part of my life I will hold close to my heart. I'm thankful for my memories of the many great times we had. He was a one and only and will be missed by all that knew him.

As most of you know I was AOL for a very long time . As soon as I got back "Butch" was the first to welcome me home with a suprise trip to see Eric Clapton. We were always doing things on a whim .
He was a good friend.
He will be missed!

Frank was the single most positive person I have ever met. Whether he was flush or bust, he was always wearing a smile or laughing or making someone else laugh. My parents, Ben and Nelda Hamrick, as well as myself, have so many amazing memories with Frank - it would take months to talk about them all. He will be so greatly missed! Our prayers are with his family during this time of grief. We love you, Frank. See you on the other side! ✌💜
