In 1951, Frank joined the United States Air Force and honorably served our country during the war in Korea. He loved spending time teaching children in his Sunday School class as well as during summer camps. He said “He loved the joy in a child’s face when they learned something new.”

Frank also spent the holidays playing Santa at the mall when he lived in Indiana. He was a man with many talents including cooking and gardening. It was said “he could grow anything.” He also had a heart for animals and was always on the look out for one that would need rescuing. Frank’s knack for animals also included feeding and attracting humming birds, a passion that followed him to the V.A. home where he resided. Another passion was playing, and teaching others to play, dominoes. He was the undisputed “King of dominoes” in the V.A. Frank also enjoyed spending time outdoors fishing and hunting.

Visitation is planned for Saturday, September 2, at Seven Oaks Funeral Home from 10 until 11 a.m. A memorial service honoring his life will immediately follow at 11.
