Sad to hear of Franks passing. He was a gentlemen, professional and to whom ever he dealt with were better off because of him. You had to love how he approached all aspect of living. He is a special person to me. I think of him often and I'm sure I will always do.
My best to his family.

I have many fond memories of Frank. We rode together on the commuter van from Oakbrook to Glenview. I worked next to his department in the Corporate building . He was a pleasure to know and work with. He will be missed.

Frank was one of a kind and a real class act. If the Duffers ever made a movie, Frank would be played by Steve McQueen, Dean Martin or George Clooney. He was cool as ice, warm as the sun and a great friend.
Tears and beers to Frank, he will be missed.

A true "gentleman" in every sense of the word!" Who always had a smile on his face and would even laugh at a dumb joke coming out of a Duffers mouth no matter how bad it was? Never a discouraging word came from the mouth of this "gentleman!" He did not have to raise his voice to be noticed! He put his pants on just like everybody else but he probably did it better than "anybody else!" If there is a true test of how somebody "carries themselves" look no further than the footprints Frank left behind! He has left behind a beautiful family and hundreds of friends! We are left with a memory of somebody who never said "boo" unless you mentioned the Cubs! RIP Frank. I hope everybody you ever touched will live their lives like the example you left?

I started playing hockey with Frank in 1971. He and Jan had 2 boys and 2 girls that were similar in age to our 4 kids, so we had a lot in common. My wife Carole and Jan became great friends, so we share many memories together. When I retired in 2001 from teaching in Chicago, I started going to lunch with Frank and any friends who could make it. We went to lunch every week for 19 years until the COVID virus stopped us. We enjoyed many laughs and memories of hockey road trips. Frank got me hooked on Jimmy Buffett concerts with his family in 1999. We went to many concerts after that and had many more laughs with his family. He will be missed.

I was Frank’s secretary for almost 10 years when he was Director of Financial Planning at Signode. He was a wonderful boss. Our whole department appreciated and respected him. The most important things to him were his family and the Duffers. My heart goes out to you, Jan. Frank, I hope there’s a big ice rink in heaven where you can skate among the clouds.

I have many memories from my visits with Grandpa Frank. Everytime I went over, he was there smiling, dog on lap, ready to talk about life for however long we were willing to stay. He truly was someone special and will never be forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Presecky family.

Frank,
You were always a good and true friend. When I first joined the team you opened your heart to me and Diane. We had some great times together, and I will always remember them. Rest in peace dear friend.
