I always enjoyed working beside Capt Anisworth at the fire scenes in Jacksonville. He always treated the police officers with respect. He was one of the great ones. May GOD Bless his family and give them strength and comfort during this difficult time of grief.
Frank was a good role model for all in his life. He will be missed
He will be missed by all
Many of us looked up to Frank as a compassionate and loving man. He spoke when he had something important to say. I will always remember him as a loving grandfather, father-in-law, father and husband to all of his family. He taught some of the best firefighters in Jacksonville and was a pillar of our family too. A very upstanding man to say the least, I will miss him. Bless those who knew him and bless this family.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all. It was an honor to care for Mr Frank.
Frank was my first Captain at the Jacksonville fire department. He taught me so many things that I remembered throughout my 40 year career in the fire service. Not the least of which was how to be a good fire officer. Thank you, Capt. A.
Frank was one heck of a firefighter and a good person and will be miss.
Prayers and love for Aunt Thelma, Clayton and Doyle, and all our family. ❤️🙏❤️❤️🙏
