Margie and Family, my condolences to you on Frank's passing. Frank was a pleasure to work with for many years. He hired me at Arthur Young & Company in 1976 and was a mentor and friend for many years. Always upbeat and positive, his approach was to do whatever was necessary to get the job done. His hard work was an inspiration to me. Our friendship continued in recent years as a couple times a year he would invite me to FEI meetings and I would have the pleasure of having dinner with him and hearing about his recent events. He was passionate about many things, but mostly about his family. He proudly shared what all of you were accomplishing. All the best, Mike Murray

My deepest condolences on your loss, and I share that loss. I first met Frank in 1974 when I joined Arthur Young and Company. While I was there he was both a mentor and an inspiration. When I returned to work in Buffalo, I would look for him at FEI meetings and E&Y get-togethers - he was always engaging and a pleasure to be around. I will remember him and keep him in my prayers.

So, so sad to hear of the death of "Uncle Frank"... he was such a sweet man, always enjoyed chatting with him. Wonderful memories of visits with him in Waddington and a family trip we made to see them in East Aurora. Will always remember how he harped on me to get annual PSA tests after his bout with prostate cancer! Love and condolences to the Zag family, he will be missed....

Dear Zagrobelny Family,
Please accept my most sincere condolences for the loss of your Husband, Father and Friend Frank!
Although I did not know him well, I did know him and wife Margaret from weekly and morning mass at Immaculate Conception and Christmas Eve mass at Christ the King Seminary where one snowy X-mas Eve he shoveled a path for my wife and I to walk into the Church Joyfully with Glee!
Prayers for his eternal rest!
Sincerely with Respect,
Mike Kriegbaum

I wish to extend my condolences on Frank's passing. My memories through our affiliation with the Financial Executives Int'l (FEI) will always be of Frank as engaging, gracious and, most importantly, a friend to all. Frank always offered a smile, an encouraging comment and expressed a genuine interest in people. He served as President of our FEI chapter during our 50th anniversary in 1987-88 and most notably remained active in our group in retirement. I'll carry fond memories of conversations with Frank.
