    I had the chance to work with LT when I first started out with the sheriff office. He was a very good person and always had good advice to give you when you needed it.

    RIP Brother
    I had the privilege to serve with Frank in RVN.
    I remember him best by his dry 1line humor but bad to the bone when necessary.
    He was a man among men and respected everyone.
    I can hear him say don’t cry…. he would
    just say: “Carry On”
    We will miss him for sure but we will “Carry On”
