I just found this. We are heartbroken. Frank worked with me at Ruby Red's Warehouse. A fine friend, a good man, and, yes, he had a gift to share with everyone. Godspeed. RIP.

I found out recently Frank of you passing. Now I know why you did not answer my calls/texts. You were a good man and I was glad to call you friend after we met 22 years ago. You were known for your generosity and big heart and hugs. We were from the same generation and had many similar storys to relate.

Uncle Frank, I just heard of your passing and my heart is hurting. I remember in the Inhouse trailer when you would come TO my tables…I would introduce you to my people, and you would grab the man by his arm, look at him in the eyes, and ask, “how do you know when a T/S salesperson is lying?”then look at me and say, “when his lips are moving.” You would them tell a story, somehow know the people the same people and get a deal. And I’ll never forget the day you went to the ATM machine to get $20 for me because I didn’t have any money. You’re a wonderful man with a big heart and you will surely be missed. Love you, Ryan

I didn’t know your dad, but he must have been a wonderful dad, grandpa because it shows through you. His memory will continue through your love.

Anthony & Emily, Sending you lots of love during this time of loss, sadness and grief. Uncle Frank was an amazing person! I will always remember his generosity and his love. My favorite part of my house and where I spend many hours reading and watching deer in my yard is my 3-season porch furnished with wicker furniture from Uncle Frank. I think of him every time I’m out there!! I will miss hearing from him and sending him photos of NH. With heartfelt condolences, Michele
