Nan-- we send you our love and sympathy . Frank was a wonderful man, and we loved getting to see him often out on his walks or visiting the neighborhood horses with Aavyn. I will always remember his deep voice! Please know we are as close as the phone -- love Mike & Carol Durkin
It is difficult to read about fellow fighter pilots leaving the formation. Frank was in a sister squadron at Itazuke Air Base flying the F100 in the late 1950's. He was admired as a go-get'em pilot. We'll all be together again one day.
This is a very hard time, Nan, but you have so many wonderful memories. Every time I came over, Frank wanted to play his Big Band music. Whenever I hear that great big band music, I think of Frank! I'm sure you do too. Just switch on the tape player and he'll be right by your side, where he has always been! Hugs and love to you!
Dear Nan & family,
We are so very sorry for you loss and will always be here for you Nan.
Know that we care. You and Frank were/are wonderful neighbors and friend.

I am so sad to learn of Frank's death. Frank and I were in the same F100 squadron together in the mid 1950s.In my memories from Itazuke air Base Japan, Frank Byrne is a dashing , handsome , motorcycle riding bachelor hot shot Fighter Pilot. The kind of man that we more senior married hot shot Fighter Pilots envied a bit. I treasure those memories of flying in the same sky with Frank. I hope somewhere, sometime we may fly together again. My sincere condolences to his family and friends. C. Blair Hennessey (Colonel USAF, Retired) Saint Petersburg, Florida
