Frank was a paratrooper and driver. He really enjoyed his time in the military.
Frank was a member of MENSA.
He was a gentle and caring person. We loved hearing his stories of his 92 years of life. He has seen many things happen over the years. He lived through the depression and was very independent, starting when he was five years old.
His love for animals was very apparent to everyone who knew him. It was said that if there was a stray in the area, they knew that Frank would love and take care of them.
He had a love for fishing. He once went all the way to Venezuela to fish. He shared that love with his wife Hazel. He loved to take her with him. They traveled many places and shared many good times. He spent 9 years of his life taking care of Hazel after her stroke until her passing. He never complained in all that time. He loved her dearly.
Frank was a great neighbor. We cared for him and loved him. Once you knew him, you never forgot his stories, kindness and gentleness.
He will always be with us and never forgotten.
He is survived by a Sister and nephew, Russell Webber, niece, Leslie Glass and Diane of Florida and Larry Crase, his nephew from Missouri.
