    So sorry to hear of Frank’s passing. Knew Frank when he was in television news and I was an Omaha police officer.
    Friendly, honest, and great to be with.
    I’ll miss him.

    Worked with Frank at KFAB and KMTV. Great guy, he and his very distinctive laugh will be greatly missed.
    Had a great time playing penny poker with him while we were stranded at the KFAB Studios during the blizzard of ‘75.
    I also enjoyed our impromptu wrestling matches in front of the teletype machines.

    To my loving family:
    No words can express our loss to the family, but I thank God. I just know we were better because we had each other. I won’t ever forget the times we all spent together.
    I thought of Uncle Frank Dee when cousin Frank passed and how proud he was of Frank, Sondra, Marlene and Warren, Jr., a legacy for sure!

    I was an engineer at KFAB from 1974 to 1977. Frank was the nicest young man you could have ever known, polite, witty and a person of great integrity. One evening, Frank read a news story off the wire that did not speak well of a local politician running for a national office. This person’s unsavory reputation was pretty well known. It wasn’t long before he came storming into the station berating Frank for airing the story and telling Frank that he needed this person’s permission to broadcast anything regarding him. Frank didn’t argue with him but stood his ground and listened. When the guy was done venting, Frank just looked at him, smiled and laughed in his unique way, The politician stormed out the same way he came in. On another occasion, we lived neighbors to a police homicide investigator who told me that Frank was the only news person he trusted to share information with. Rest in peace Frank. We love you.
