Frank graduated from Kansas State University in 1966 with a bachelor’s degree in Accounting. He worked in Washington, D.C for 44 years for the Federal Government, first in the General Accounting Office and then with the Department of Labor. He lived in Maryland for 46 years before retiring to Colorado in 2011. He enjoyed camping and traveling with his wife Pat. They traveled coast to coast from Delaware to Oregon and Alaska to Florida. They became world travelers when they visited their children in England, Germany, and Japan.
Frank had many hobbies and interests including square dancing with his wife Pat. He was a Ham Radio enthusiast and ran emergency preparedness nets in both Maryland, and later in Colorado. You could hear him over the air with the call sign KB3PDT. He could also talk your ear off about Family History. He volunteered as a Family History consultant and completed 6 generations of his own family tree before passing the genealogy bug on to his children. An avid photographer, he took thousands of pictures of his family, his travels, and dozens of weddings.
Frank was a quiet and soft-spoken man, but his family and friends knew he would do anything for them.
