I was saddened to hear of Frank's passing.  He was such an engaging and friendly person...never met a stranger kind of guy.   He coached a Little League baseball team I was on and he sure made it fun to play ball.   I always enjoyed visiting with him in later years when returning to the Valley.

I met Frank while working as a driver for Orange County Transit, picking him up and dropping him off at home after dialysis. He went to school with my mother-in-law and he always told me to say hello to her for him. I always enjoyed seeing him and will miss him. I'm sorry I couldn't get to the funeral home to see him properly. Please accept my condolences for your loss. May God bless and keep you all in his care.
With Kind affection
