The short time that I had a privilege of getting to know Frank it was truly an honor. In speaking with him he always had a smile on his face and something positive to say, always so willing to help as I was working on the house. I found myself while talking to him always laughing. It was my privilege to have gotten to know him, he was one of the nicest people I have ever met. You will truly be missed, you left this world much too soon. God Bless!

Butch, eh, Frank, although we never called him that, helped define my childhood. Butch was the brother my parents didn't give birth to and lived down the street. Once we all had separate cabins at Richard's in Haywood, WI. If I remember correctly, we were barely into double digits, in terms of age. We didn't want to get up early to go fishing. We wanted to sleep in. So, all the adults went fishing. Butch, Cindy Mace and I wanted to go swimming. The only problem was that none of us knew how. Plus it was cold. So, we made a deal. Whoever got the life-vest on and jumped in the deep end of the pool first would get a quarter from the other two. He saved Cindy's life that day. She was in such a rush to win 50 cents that she put her life-vest on wrong. She was busy flailing and I was too busy laughing to appreciate the severity of the situation. Butch was laughing too, but at least he thought to extend the pool net to her so he could pull her out. While camping at a California National Park, he was at my side when we gave up roasting marshmallows to run to the tent because on-lookers warned us that there a bear at our campsite. It was dark. We couldn't see it. We knew weren't supposed to run. We were supposed to WALK. However, at 13 & 14, we ran. The crowd told us to get in the car. But Mom & Dad were armed. They were in the tent. So, we ran to the tent. We turned the corner of the tent and came face-to-face with the bear. Dad unzipped the tent door to see what all the shouting was about, which the bear was standing right in front of. It was dark and the light from the tent made the bear turn his head. Then Butch and I ran to the truck. All Butch and I heard was Dad repeatedly ask Mom to give him his camera. That same month-long trip to California there were other things we all still remember and laugh about. For those of you who didn't know Butch, he was tall.. I know all teenage boys eat a lot, but, he would eat his entire meal before some of us even finished preparing our meals - at restaurants. He'd hover; leaning over, watching you lift a fork full of food from your plate to your mouth. Then point to something on your plate and ask: "You gonna eat that?" At one point we lost Butch on a hiking trail. Mom & Dad got the rangers involved because it was getting dark. They organized search parties. Everyone spreading out & calling his name. When we finally heard him answer, he was asked "Where are you?". His answer was "Over here"; as though that was going to be helpful. I suppose it was helpful, since he was told to keep yelling so the searchers could follow the sound of his voice. He gave me a scar on my head. He ran the bases and couldn't figure out why everyone was leaving the field. He felt horrible. He is God-Father to Lisa, our youngest. He wore a "Bob's Son" T-Shirt at my Dad's 60th birthday party. Even long distance he as always been part of our lives. He was loved and will be missed. Kathy, Bob & Mike you and your families will remain in our prayers. The void Butch's absence leaves will be difficult. Please know that you're not alone; Christ walks beside you. Michele

Frank was one of the first people we met when we moved to the area. He was always gracious, friendly, and kind. One of the many things we will miss about him is his infectious laugh and smile not only towards us, but our daughter Brooke. He always made us feel like we were apart of his family. You are gone to soon; our deepest sympathies to his family we are thinking of you!
