Dear Helen,
I am so sorry to learn of Frank's passing.

As I text this message, I am smiling at my memories of Frank and you. Recalling the pediatric parties , Frank's presence lit up the room! There was always laughter, oh so much laughter!
Yes, Frank was frank! It was all GOOD!

My thoughts and prayers are with you Helen and your family at your family's time of grieving.

With Deepest Sympathy,
Mary Stancik Jenkins

Frank was not only my neighbour but a good friend, he was one of a kind! Under that gruffness was a heart of gold and nothing was more important to him than his family. He loved his wife Helen and was so proud of his daughters Alison and Kathryn. His grandchildren Aidan, Sophia and Liam brought him so much joy and happiness. Frank has left behind many great memories that will bring comfort in the days ahead and I somehow think he would like to be remembered with a smile rather than tears. Rest in peace my friend, I’ll see you soon. arLeen & Ron

Frank was an awesome Drum Corp enthusiast that will be remembered for allowing his children to share in his passion. God Bless Frank, and reach for those High "C's"...
