Frank was easily one of the best friends I and my family have ever known. Fair winds and following seas my friend. The heavenly choir has added yet another beautiful soul and voice to it's ranks. I will see you again some fine day.

I still can't believe your gone... We just started to talk again. You said you were sorry for the past and you wanted to make it up to me but we didn't get the time.... I'm going to miss you. I guess at least we got to talk and you got to say what you needed to say and now you are with our daughter in heaven... Can you please give her a kiss and hug and tell her to wait for momma it's not her time yet and I miss you both until that time comes...I love you both Frank and Samantha Rose... Until we meet again

I met Frank in the late 80’s when he was in the Navy aboard the USS Samuel Gompers and I worked at the Enlisted Club as a cocktail waitress and bartender. (Before the days of Taz) He was and always be special to me. He wanted to step in and be a father to my son since my son didn’t have one in his life. Some of my best memories were of him with my son. Fly high & fly free Frank I will never forget you. ❤️

Taz and I hung out at Karaoke often and he came by my house a few times to sing while I played guitar. He loved music and most of the memories I have of him were music related. Heavens choir added a good one.

I believe I met "Taz" in 1998...I was a Kareoke host here in the Valley,I hosted several different places in the Valley..I had an awesome following and Taz was one of them..He loved Country music and was quite talented..I loved singing harmony with him in."Write This Down"......Taz was respectful and kind to everyone..Taz entered a lot of kareoke contests in the Valley and so did I...One of the sweet memories I have of him..he would tell others that he didn't want to compete against me!!!!! I told him he was very talented and people Loved to hear him sing...On a more serious note...I feel that Taz has gone Home to be with his Lord and Savior.....singing with the Heavenly Choir. We will join him there....no more Sorrow and No more heartache....and spend Eternity..Forever to be with the Lord...What a Day that will be....We will miss you my singing Friend....Susan

Taz frequent some of the same places I went to for Kareoke through out the years. We had some of the same friends in common but we never really socialized outside of Kareoke. He was friendly, & had a good sense of humor, but I thought of him to be a gentleman when he spoke to me. He always greeted me by tipping his hat & saying something flatering about my appearance & then asking me how I was going. He seemed truely interested about my welfare. I saw his behaviors around people to be outgoing & treated people with respect & dignity. He was well liked by many.
I didn't know much about him personally but he would always enjoy talking about how he loved his child & how he enjoyed doing things with them & he enjoyed being a father. To me, family is everything to me & he seemed interested in knowing me because I too enjoyed being the best Mom to my children. As I said, I didn't know Taz outside of running into each other a Kareoke places but I always felt he was a good person & I enjoyed the times we spoke.
I personally felt Taz had a good heart & I held high respect for him as a good human being to know. My only regret is I didn't get time to continue to know him better. He will be missed.
May he rest in peace, Amen.

Taz was an awesome caring man. He helped me out in 2002 in Phoenix when my house was robbed.
