    I have so many wonderful memories of Frank through the years too many to mention. I do know that Frank loved the Lord and his family. Frank loved to joke and loved a good laugh. Cheryl and Kelly I know you have suffered much loss in the last year my heart aches for you. Cherish the wonderful memories, lean on the Lord and he will carry you through. Sending my love and hugs to you.

    On couple of projects Frank was a piling designer in my team. He was truly a gentleman. I had not seen him in Facebook for a while and my concern was sadly correct. I am sorry to see such a good man colleague and a long time friend pass away. God bless his soul.
