Jessie I just read about Frank’s passing. I am so sorry for your loss. It was always so fun hanging out with the two of you while attending Weber State.

I am saddened to learn of Frank’s recent passing. He really was a nice man and genuine “good guy.” We have been close friends of the Ostler family since the 1950’s. They are a family I always greatly admired.
Godspeed, Frank.

My condolences to the family of my childhood friend. Frank was my hero when it came to anything around the boats at Pineview. We spent many days on the water and learned to "Surf" behind Bill's boat. Water skiing was so easy for Frank also. I only wish we had kept in touch after college. He was always so talented with anything he did, including school.

With Love and Respect,

I remember Frank well, we worked together at the place and he was a very dedicated guy to his work. He was always right there to help and solve problems. I did not know his family but I am sure he will be missed by them and friends. later .willie curd
