I have known Frank for over 57 years, he worked with my father at Sam B. Smith's TV and later at my father's store , Comery's Electronic Center. I enjoyed every minute chatting with Frank. His memories of the Aberdeen of the old, and his time in the Navy during WW2 , kept me entertained while we jointly delivered or picked up TVs for service or new ones going into someones home. He was a familiar face in the crowd when I played baseball and football in Aberdeen in the 60's and 70's. Somewhat a cliche' but he was like a second father. Most of all I admired what a kind man he was, with a great sense of humor. My condolences to the family.

Frank graduated with my mother & they were friends. Many years later, I worked with him at Sam B. Smith's TV & Trailer shop. He was a great guy. Dave Eaton.
