To all of Frank’s family, you have our deepest sympathy. Frank was such an outgoing man with many friends. He was such a beloved character and we all have our own special memories of him. You all should be proud of yourselves for the care you gave him. He was a lucky man to have you. There is a saying that helps me through some tough times and maybe it will give you some peace too. “Don’t mourn what is gone, but rejoice that you once had it” so, when you get down, remember the good stuff.

Please accept my sincere condolences on Frank’s passing. He was a great person and a wonderful neighbor. I have wonderful memories of him playing soft ball with my father(Stan Stein). I remember they used to walk to my Dad’s store then call my Mom to pick them up because they didn’t want to walk back up the hill. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Please let me know if you need anything.

Have been neighbors for 40 years and always enjoyed talking with Frank whenever we would see each other especially when he would come driving past our house. Frank would always offer a handshake before and after our conversations. He will be missed. Thoughts and prayers for his entire family.

I was in Frank’s class at BHS, but I didn’t know him well at the time. I felt he was a really nice guy. Sadly, I never saw him after that. Looks like he had a great life, and I’m happy for him. My condolences to all his family.
