Frank will be missed by many, but he is now in eternal peace with his beloved wife Doris. Frank and Doris were like my parents, I lived on the farm next store when I was a little girl. I have many happy memories of Frank and Doris.

I give my deepest sympathies to Frank's family and friends.

Dear family you have my sincere condolences. What precious memories you must hold of your dear loved one who lived such a long life! May those memories, along with your reliance and trust in the one true God (Psalm 83:18) comfort you during this difficult time and may you find comfort in the promise of a resurrection in Acts 24:15.

Thinking of each of you. As each of you were all so good to him. I am sorry that Jewel Brown wasn't mentioned as she did a lot for Frank. He was an amazing man and wish I had his memory. God bless each of you. I knew that Rhonda did so much for him and called everyday. God bless her and Kim too. Rob you raised wonderful children and pray for you each day.

Have known Frank since I was just a child; Frank would assist my Father in making repairs on various pieces of equipment and being a very observant child interested in farming I picked up a lot of interest and understanding of how various pieces of equipment worked from Frank throughout the years, from then until recent years. A true friend who will be missed by all who knew him. I know Frank has been received by our Lord and Savior with a "well done, thou good and faithful servant;" Matt 25:21. Now, go and rest on that peaceful mountain Frank.

Frank was my older brother George's best friend way back in the 1930's. As a little boy, in the early 1940's, I used to ride with Frank on his way into Scottsville at night where he was the projectionist for the Victory Theater. He even showed me how to run the projector and to splice the film when it broke from time to time. A fine man and a real gentleman.
