Frank accepted me as his second daughter when Jessica and I became friends in high school. He was such a family man and loved to take Jess and I out to eat. I tried menudo for the first time because of him. My fondest memory is when I drove to California with him to visit Jess. He let me drive his car and of course made fun of my driving skills the entire way 😂. I remember one night Jess and I slept out in the treehouse and in the middle of the night we wake up to Frank shinning the bright headlights from his truck up into the tree house to make sure we hadn’t snuck out or left. That night he let us use his night goggles and told us the intense stories of his LAPD days. He was a strong man, a loving man, and a great example of a man that loved and took care of his family at any cost. I will miss you dearly Frank! All your jokes and your smile. Rest In Peace, you’re struggle here has ended and God can care for you now the way you cared for your family. Much love dude!
