    Frank was an excellent boss from whom I learned a great deal. My years working with him at MDEC will be fondly remembered. Brenda was a blessing to him and I know he cared for her dearly. See you in heaven, friend!

    My condolences to Frank’s family. I worked for Frank at the MP School in the mid 1970s. He taught me a lot and was a great boss. I saw him again in 1987 and it seemed like he never aged. The obituary that I read never said that he served in Vietnam with the 101st Airborne Division and was awarded the Legion of Merit there. I am sure that he will be missed by all. May he rest in peace.
