I worked with Frank for many years at both GTE Sylvania in Batavia, NY and at Philips Magnavox in Knoxville. Frank was a fine gentleman, that was always ready to help anyone.
I remember his love for both softball and pitching horseshoes, and he was very good at both sports, as well as bowling.
I am blessed to have walked a part of life's pathway with him and pray peace and comfort for his family.
