Frank and I had a lot of great times growing up and getting in trouble together as teenagers living on Duke Road. He was impressively smart, always ready for an adventure, a trustworthy confidant, and an all around good friend. As with many friendships, we managed to loose touch over the years but the memories of the times we had back then have always traveled with me, and still manage to bring a smile to my face at some of the most random times. The news of his passing is difficult to process and my heart goes out to the family that is remembering his life and mourning his passing. I will miss my friend and I can only hope that his soul has now found peace.
With love and sympathy, Jonathan Brinson

I remember Frank dearly. He was not the most obnoxious guy in the classroom but he knew how to bring a smile to anyone's face. He would also go out of his way to help others. He was a gentle kind hearted guy and I know he will be missed. My family will be praying for Frank's family during this difficult time.

Frank was such a funny guy who could always make you laugh. I have a lot of fond memories of him growing up and in high school. He got me interested in collecting baseball cards and helped me when I had no idea what I was doing. Great guy who will be missed. Praying for his family.
