Dear Betty and family,
Our deepest sympathy to you and your family for the loss of Frank. Bub remembers him fondly from their days working at Rockwell. Mom talks about his bread baking skills. One of the nicest guys around. May your memories bring you peace and comfort. God bless you.

Frank and Tut were with my Dad for a long time and as one of the Boss's kids, they kept me busy and entertained. Nothing but good memories and Frank made sure I learned more than just how to work hard and finish projects. My sympathy to all the family but having great memories and knowing he's in a better place sure helps.

Frank was a tractor mechanic for F. Moored & Son in Burnips for many years. He was employed by my Dad, Ken Moored and I always grew up thinking of him , Betty, and boys as part of our family. He put up with me (weekend and Summer employee when not in school) and my brother Jim as the "boss's kids" and kept us out of trouble! Always kind, with a great sense of humor .. that was Frank. He, Tut, and my Dad will have alot to talk about in the next life!
