  1. I am so sorry for your Loss! Frank was always a great person and had a great personality. He was fun to be around and to work with during firemen and Auxiliary events. He will be surely missed by many. I will always remember him with his smile and those times with the Firemen and Auxiliary.
    Family always remember those good times and remember the times that his smile would lighten the mood and day. Share those memories with family and friends and Frank will never die as he is alive in heaven with his wife and sons and family always looking in on all the rest of the family over time
