Frank is survived by his loving family that meant everything in the world to him. Fran, his wife of 62 years, was the love of his life from the day he met her. They were best friends and inseparable. Together they raised two children; Frank (Julie) Daniel of Logan and daughter Kimberly (Paul) Callahan of Galena. The epitome of loving father, we never celebrated a holiday without him announcing “I don’t want any presents, I just want my family together”.
Being a grandfather and great-grandfather was everything to him. Frank was blessed with four grandchildren; Paul, Jordan, Brittney (Tim) and Tess (Adam) and three great-grandchildren, Braxton, James and Reagan. Known as “Pap”, his grandchildren and great-grandchildren absolutely adored him.
Frank proudly served four honorable years in the United States Army and was incredibly proud to be a Veteran. While serving, Frank met his two best friends, one would eventually become his loving brother-in-law, Earl (Phyllis) Sneed and the other would remain a life-long, loving best friend, Tom (Debbie) Frey.
Frank is also survived by numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and countless dear friends that were always in his heart.

Frank shared his deep love of sports with his son, grandsons, granddaughters and great-grandsons. He coached his son’s baseball teams in Madison Township for many years. He made some wonderful friends and coached many other young players which he referred to as “my boys”.
He never missed a ballgame or school event. He even got to see his great-grandson, James, play his first season of baseball with a huge smile on his face the entire game.
We wish to thank the amazing souls at Fairhope Pickering House in Lancaster for their incredible compassion and care. We are eternally grateful.
Frank had an amazing soul and was incredibly kind to everyone he met. Our world will never be the same without him but we are comforted in knowing that he is forever in the arms of God.
