Frank was a kind and caring gentleman. I enjoyed working with him to manage his investments so that he could reap the benefits of his retirement. I know he loved his home in the mountains and working on and showing his cars. My condolences go out to his family.

I will miss your impish smile when you thought you had pulled one over on me. Well, “Sport Model,” you have gone to a better place but you are not forgotten. My promise to you is being kept, you can Rest In Peace knowing so.
