FRANK FLATELY LED A LIFE OF A TRUE IRISH CATHOLIC MAN, FATHER AND HUSBAND.
A JOY TO HAVE AS A FELLOW PARISHONER FOR MANY, MANY YEARS,
BILL ENNIS FAMILY
Frank was a true class act. I was privileged to have known him during my 16 year tenure with Caltex. Always good for a good joke and I am certain that he is getting a lot of laughs up there. Even though he no longer lives here on Earth, he still abides among us in the acts of goodness he performed and in the hearts of those who cherish his memory. Surely the beauty of his life will serve as a loving blessing. I and my wife, Cynthia extend our most heartfelt condolences to his beautiful family.
Our love and condolences to Liz and Aunt Paula and all your extended families. Rest in Peace, Uncle Fran.
My heartfelt condolences. Frank was a friend in New York and Dallas for many years at Caltex and after. Rest in peace with God's grace.
My memories are very old of Fran. Kneeling with his folks and brothers and sisters for evening Rosary, if you happened in at that time in the evening. He was the scion of an amazing family and I've loved reading the tributes to him.

My most special memories of Uncle Fran will always be from the week my father died. Fran heard the news in Texas that my father had died on New Year's Eve morning and was at our family home in California that same night. It felt so comforting to see this wonderfully familiar man come through the door that night with his lovely warm voice, ready to hug his sister and her kids and ring in the New Year.
Two days later, he asked where the nearest mall was. He wanted to buy me a new dress for my dad's funeral. And we went to the Macy's women's department, just he and 20-year-old I, and he bought me my very first (and only!) full-priced, Liz Clairborne, blue, brushed-silk, pleated-skirt dress. While my heart was breaking, I was able to also feel so pretty and so loved by this generous, grieving, tender-hearted man.
I think of Uncle Fran every New Year's Eve and will now every January 3rd. All my love to you, Paula, and to your grieving family and friends - xoxo
Miss you already, Uncle Fran.
May God watch over you as you rest in peace.
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Paula and the family during this difficult time.
Frank and Ann Cannon
To the family, Mr. Frank, which is meant with the utmost respect, would not know me from Eve quite honestly but he spoke to me every time he walked by me. Wow, that was kind. I knew from his demeanor that he was a gentleman through and through. Oh, that I might have that same heart of warmth and kindess.
I was lucky enough to have trained Frank in International AAdvantage years ago. Frank was the life of the class and he and I stayed friends since. I am so going to miss Frank. Paula my heart is with you.
What a life he lived. Very impressive! My condolences to you and your family Dave.
Frank was an angel on earth and will be greatly missed. Now he is someone special in heaven. Prayers are with all the family.
I met Frank when I joined Caltex in 1977, and we became good friends when we moved with Caltex to Irving, TX in 1982. I worked with Frank, on and off, until I was transferred to Chevron in 1989. I've always wanted to visit ex-Caltex folks in Dallas, primarily to see Frank and listen to his jokes. I really enjoyed his sense of humor and genuine friendship. I will miss Frank. I look up to him as my "second father." Rest in peace my dear friend.
Sending love and prayers from San Diego. Uncle Fran will be greatly missed by so many. xoxo
My heart is heavy for those who are dealing with the loss of such a beloved man. Paula and Frank were always a joy to see at our transplant functions. My deepest sympathies.
I met Frank Flatley back in 1982 when Caltex moved it's headquarters from New York to Texas. He had a great sense of humor, and we happy to see him when he stopped by the relocation offices as he always had a tall Irish tale to tell. A true gentleman, and a great family man! You will be missed.
Frank, God is now holding you in the palm of his hand. SLAN!
May God bless your family in your time of sorrow. Frank was a very sweet man and will be missed.
I worked with Frank in NY and Dallas for many years. He was a wonderful person always had a smile and a joke. Our deepest condolences to Paula and Family.
MR. Flatley will truly be missed @ thanks for sharing him with our family @ AA for so many years.
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
Always a kind word and a small joke, Frank was a kind soul. RIP Mr. Flatley you will be missed. Denise Lewis
Frank's gentleness and kind nature always made him one of my favorite people.
I was saddened to hear Frank died. I was on the relocation team that transfered Caltex from NYC to Irving in 1982 and became friends with Frank and so many other wonderful people. He made the transition from the East to Texas very well with his wit and personality. I remember him very fondly. My thoughts and prayers to his family.
Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
