I fondly remember Frank and his work with SUA. As the assignor, Frank would always umpire any game where I needed help, on any level. He was always a true gentleman and l missed him when he left umpiring baseball/softball.
It is with deep regrets that I will be unable to attend the services for Frank, but please know that my prayers are with you and the family during this difficult time.
God bless you all.

I was so sad to hear of the passing of my friend who mentored me in my early years as a football official. I have such good memories of the times both on and off the field. Such a kind man.
You will be missed my friend. R. I. P.
