My deepest condolences to his family. Frank was the best neighbor I could of ever asked for. I lived next to him for 10 years on Michigan st, he welcomed me to the neighborhood and was as sad as I when I had to leave. I will always have fond memories of sitting on his porch talking, taking him to the bank and how he always made sure that when his grass was cut or snow removed that mine was done too. RIP Frank, you will be missed. Dawn Burgett

I went to school with Frank, Class of 53. When we started our class reunions, Frank never came. I called him and said he would really enjoy himself if he came. Finally, after much coaxing he did. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and attended the next one also, our 50th. We were so happy that he joined us. Since then, when he was out on one of his “rides, he would stop in and visit. We always enjoyed his visits and will miss him. Rest In Peace my friend. Helen Okalski
