I grew up with Frank in Peoria Heights. We were both from the same neighborhood. I spent many days and times hanging around with Frank, and I affectionately recall that big house he lived in on Toledo Avenue. We spent many hours on that big porch. It was our fort, and safety from the hostiles. We had great times and many memories on that porch. I last saw Frank at our Richwoods Class Reunion In 1977. I’m so sorry we had lost our connection. I will always remember Frank, and I thank him for being a friend. Thank you for your service to our nation Frank, and one day, perhaps we will see one another on that back porch again. See you after while, my friend. Rest In Peace.

As freshmen at Richwoods High School in 1967, Frank and I were lab partners in a power and transportation class. He bailed me out several times with his uncanny skill, knowledge, and insight. After graduation in 1967, I never saw Frank again. I always wanted to see him again to tell him what a great and helpful person he was and that I never ever forgot him. Rest In Peace, partner. We will meet again. Peace to your family and friends.
