    The world lost a good man. I will remember Frank forever. He made such a difference but never accepted accolades. May his family be proud!

      He loved working at Nebraska School for the Deaf. He used his ability to sign up until the day he passed away.

    It’s been a Long Road, and he fought hard to kick the Cancer Beast. He will be remembered for his Love & dedication to his family and strong work ethic. It’s the Family Bond that will help you moving forward.

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I was just thinking about Frank last week and I guess now I know why. He was so supportive of me as an undergraduate student and NSD dorm tutor and houseparent. We later worked with him to make our daughters’ bunkbeds and remember the smell of fresh wood– and the sticky hands from the sap. We think of him often as our young nieces and nephews now use the beds when they visit. I hope the memories of a life well-lived are comforting for you as you grieve.

      Thank you so much for your story. He will be missed but lives on in all the lives he touched and furniture he built.
