Frank was always a highlight of our week whenever he’d come into our office. Over the course of many years, I cannot recall a visit when after he left several people didn’t all say “I just love Frank”. He always left the people around him happier than they were before he arrived. A true definition of a gentleman and radiated gratitude and love. In a time where these traits seem to be harder to find in our daily interactions we should all try to be a little more like Frank Pickett.

Frank you will be dearly missed and we will miss your stories about gardening and farming. Debbie and I enjoyed the dinners out with you, Ann and our mutual friend Joline. Rest In Peace and Keep a perfect garden in Heaven!!!

Frank was the sweetest man I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I am going to miss seeing him sitting on the porch and our long talks. You will never be forgotten

Frank was a sweet and funny person. Bruce and I loved our weekends on the farm in Owen County. My grandparents who lived across the road from Frank and his first wife, Jo, for many years loved them. Frank will be missed. God Bless Ann and Barry and Eric and give them comfort.

Frank was a kind and generous man who welcomed me into his church, his Bible study group and his home. I will miss him and send all my prayers and sympathy to his family and dear friends. I am so sorry for your losses.
