Dear Frink Family. I had the honor to work for Jim when he was Manager of Production and Storage at The East Ohio Gas Co. in North Canton Ohio. Who could ever forget his loud throat clearing as he walked loudly in his cowboy boots down the hallway which he got from Cape Pipe Line Co. after completing the 30 in gathering line project in Cambridge Oh.Jim was a wonderful Man and gave me my first Management job at P&S. Our paths crossed many times later and he was always my friend. May you rest in peace dear Friend. Joe Mezquita

Dear Frink family and friends:
I worked for Jim in the mid 1960's on pipeline projects at East Ohio Gas. I remember eating in the EOG cafeteria with Jim. He would get a salad and put 2 different dressings on it. He told me, why not mix dressings and enjoy your meal. I kidded him but now I do the same thing including mixing different cereals for breakfast.
Then he went to Pittsburgh. I would see him once in a while when I worked in Pittsburgh. We both retired and I did not know where he was living. I started a data base of retirees from EOG in the year 2000. Someone asked me why Jim's information was in the data base. I started a search but did not locate him in the Pittsburgh area or anywhere in PA. I paid a company for a people search. They found Jim in Las Vegas. I did not believe it until I talked to him and he explained why he moved. Almost every time I talked to Jim in the winter, he would compare the temperature in NV with my temperature in Cleveland. He tried to convince me to move.
I called Jim at least 2 times a month. I would ask Jim “how are you”. He would always say “FINE”. I knew I had the correct number. He kept encouraging me to continue the data base. Many times he would give me new EOG names and email addresses.
Then we started to collect State Quarters. He said he could purchase uncirculated State Quarters at face value at a bank (like $300 in coins each time). He would pack, insure and mail them to me. He was very trust worthy.
He invited me to come to Las Vegas but I did not go. I wish I would have.
Jim would come to Cleveland yearly. I live near the airport. He would contact me like a week early. He said he would like to eat pizza at Stan Scotto's and he asked me to join him. The last time he also joined a dozen EOG retirees at the Cheese cake factory on the east side. That was when my wife met Jim.
I always liked to talk to Jim. I did talk to Jim around one to 2 weeks before he passed away. I will miss his conversations.
