The world looses more than just a man when one such as Frank leaves us. The love he had for his family is evident in the lives of his sons. Their lives exemplify the kind of deep love he modeled for them every day of their lives. I am thankful he taught them well. Keeping his family in my heart and sending my love to you all.

Frank will be remembered as a devoted husband to his late wife, Barbara, and a loving father to his two sons and a loving grandfather to his two grandsons. He and Barb enjoyed golfing in Florida. He had the opportunity to be a field marshal at the Players Championship in Florida. He also was a lifelong Steeler fan. Frank will be missed by his family and friends. Love Karl & Peggy
