  1. Together,
    Since the 1950’s – you lived on Utah and I was across the alley on McKean – – St. Pius, Boy Scout Camp Cherokee, paper drives, our jobs cutting lawns, my first – cigarette, beer, “Playboy” magazine; Melba Show, Velvet Freeze, watermelon stands, St. Mary’s, our first cars, our wedding days to our beautiful Marys, dinners with our Marys, and your last day on earth with your beautiful family. Thank you for your lasting friendship and the wonderful memories.
    Your friend, Bill Seiffert

    • This is such a beautiful tribute to a friendship that all should be so blessed to experience. I am sorry for your loss.

      To Frank’s family, my deepest sympathies. I’ve witnessed how important he was to Toni, Michael, Ava & Mason. Sending love & light to Mary Lee & Julie., and all of his family & friends. May you have memories to sustain you, until you meet again. God bless.

  2. Frank set a great example for loving family, hard work, a caring heart, never giving up when things got tough, always willing to help when there was a need, telling it the way he saw things, sharing a joke and trying to make people feel good whenever he could. Frank on earth was no saint but I’m sure he’s in heaven now.
    Love you brother thanks for everything.

  3. Frank was a great friend and neighbor. Our lives were forever changed after meeting Frank 14 years ago. We couldn’t have asked for better neighbors than Frank and Mary Lee. Frank, we will miss your visits on the front porch. You are forever in our hearts. To Mary Lee, Julie, Michael and family, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
    With deepest love, affection and sympathy.
    Colette and Jerry
