I worked with Frank at Channel 10 in Memphis many years ago. He was always a kind and decent man, dedicated to his work and his family. I like to think that those of us who worked with him were part of his extended "family". Working Tiger Basketball and, of course, the water skiing trips to the local lakes with Frank (it was his boat) remain as vivid in my memory as though it was yesterday. God bless you and keep you, and your family too, my friend.

My dear friend "Frank" as I knew him was my first boss in Memphis TV. I could not have had a better person to work with. He was patient, caring and taught me a lot about my chosen profession. We worked long hard hours, but sometimes we went out on Frank's boat in some muddy Mississippi lake for fun. He was a kind and decent man and while I will miss him, I know that he is at peace and in God's hands. Rest well Frank, rest well.
