I had the pleasure of knowing Frank since 2014. When I met Frank, the first thing I noticed was his beautiful smile. We had lots of adventures together . He taught me how to fish, which I so enjoyed. We took several fun road trips searching for boat motors. I have many great memories of our time together. I truly loved him. So sorry his life ended so soon.

Frank was our neighbor for many many years, we always knew when Frank was home because of his boat motors going all day. We will surely miss him. Rest in peace.

Frankie was my first cousin, we both had a big family. I loved those family holidays on Kensington Dr. when we got to see everyone. Hate to see him leave so early. RIP.
