    My sincere sorry for your loss. Frank was one of the kindest, gentlest men I have know. He was the BEST neighbor anyone could have. He was always so helpful to me. I am so sad to hear the news of his passing. My prayers to all of his friends and family.

    Sorry to hear of your loss. My sister is married to Frank’s nephew so knew him from family birthdays, etc. He was a very nice and kind man.

    We knew Frank as a friendly and knowledgeable poll co-worker for many elections. He was a gentleman, and we will miss him.
