I worked for Frank from 1966-1977 in the Freiden Room. I admired him for his knowledge and for his endless patience with his staff. He always had a smile and treated people fairly. RIP, Frank!

I am one of Frank's work family. I received word yesterday from two of my fellow retirees of the passing of Frank. Those of us that came to Bendix Purchasing prior to 1983 remember Frank as the prodigy that moved the KCP Purchasing system from one of index cards to the CAMPS system (Computer Automated Materials Procurement System). Frank played a major role in the laying of the foundation that served for the procurement system that has been recognized throughout the government complex and continues to serve Honeywell Kansas City NSC today. In 1976 when I first met Frank I was just a pup and Frank was the one we all turned to for the knowledge and wisdom that guided us thru our work day. We all grew together into the electronic age. Frank was able to provide answers to our most difficult questions and problems in a calm and assuring manner that built confidence in all of us. His calm and witty sense of humor calmed the nerves and helped save the day on many occasions. Frank contributed greatly to the mission we served at the Kansas City Plant. May he rest in peace.
