We were blessed to know Frank as I was a brother Knight. Three weeks before he passed, my wife and I invited him to lunch and rode with him to Lakeland where we had a wonderful time as he regaled us with stories of his past.
Sadly, we lost him less than three weeks later. May he be resting with Our Savior.
