Missing you, Frank. It seems I heard so many songs yesterday that reminded me of you. You loved music! I met Frank as a teenager at a job we both worked at - Channel Home Centers. He went to my Senior Prom and we dated on and off for years. I visited him at many rehabs, went to his wedding, met Crystal and Frankie when they were born........ then we lost touch for nearly 30 years. It wasn't until I joined Facebook, that he was one of my first Facebook friends. It was so great to reconnect. On and off through those years I would hear from him and we would always share laughs, memories (he remembered everything!) and all the fun times we had and the crazy things we did. Although we were miles apart, he always felt so close. He always knew what to say to boost my day and probably knew me better than I know myself. I am so thankful for being blessed by knowing him so long and having him as that special part of my life. He will forever be remembered in my heart. Praying for you, Mrs. Fehling, Karen, & Paul

Frank was like a father to me. I saw him everyday he dated my mother for about 8 years. Me and him have been through so much and he was so much more to me, he could bring light to anyone's day, he had a biggest heart and I will always love him and see him on the other side. He had a loving daughter and he was a recovering from a lot of demons. I think about him every morning during coffee he will always be in my heart. I love you franky.

I sat next to Frank for 3 years while getting our Master's Degrees at West Conn. We shared many laughs and many tears together throughout those years. He always spoke of his family and how much he loved them. You will be dearly missed Frank. XO~diane

I am so sorry for the loss of Frank. I have known him since I was a kid and although it has been many years since I have seen him, I know I will miss him. He was my patrol leader in Boy Scouts. I have many fond memories of spending time with him. When I heard about the loss my mind was immediately flooded with "Frank" moments that we shared over the years. I am thankful to have known him. Rest in peace Frank. My heart hurts for the entire Fehling family. My thoughts and prayers are with the Fehling family during this difficult time.
Much love, chuck

Frank was the embodiment of 'big man, big heart,' and his career path is demonstration of his sensitivity and compassion. Frank's voice and determination will stay with me.

My prayers go out to those with whom he shared love and time, particularly his children.
