As a UT alumnus and Rocket fan, who never had the chance to meet Coach Frank, I can appreciate these thoughtful notes....the sign of a great man, father, husband and Coach.

My sympathy to you guys. Your Dad was an unforgettable man. He was a man of steel and velvet. I phoned him regularly (he was my coach at West Point). He was the toughest task master I ever met. He expected way more than we thought we could give.
....I think that was his secret. Tough as he was I remember as recently as a couple years ago he was reminiscing with me about Army players he recruited and he remembered countless details and would get emotional about those who had passed on. He would say "I loved those years at Army and I love you guys I coached there..." He was engaging and enthusiastic and made me feel like I was ending the conversations too soon for his liking.

We also talked about your Mom, about the Lord and His mercy and about the
principles of character building.

May the Lord bless and comfort you and fill you with pleasant memories!

Frank X Lauterbur was a great coach and and a close friend. While i have not seen him often in recent years, he has always been present in my mind and heart. I will always remember him as one of my two army coaches who were largely responsible for my development as i moved from the bottom of the line-up ladder to the top. Our Army team in 1958 was third in the nation in total defense, allowing 182 yards per game. Frank's defensive strategy had a lot to do with that. In fact, his defensive strategies were were implemented in many schools throughout the country. This is a sad day for me and my wife, barbara. we remember your mom and dad fondly and you are in our thoughts and prayers. Peace.

I spent three years on the staff at the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1958,59, and 60 as the offensive line coach and Frank was the defensive line coach. In 1958 the year of the famous "Lonesome End" offense and the "Monster and Chuckles" defense is still the last undefeated Army team. Frank was an outstanding coach and instrumental in developing our defense that was ranked third nationally that year. Frank was my first passenger after I learned to fly after coaching when we lived in Waterville. Even at that time he was fearless. Frank came to stay with Sandy and me in Dayton and we flew up to West Point for the 50th reunion of that famous 1958 team in 2008. What fond memories we have of Frank and too few times together. He will be greatly missed. God bless and our sympathy to the family.

Fran,
I fondly recall our friendship at Rogers High School and your father's friendliness and honesty. I also followed the team those and later years and loved the pride he brought to the city and the program. You are in my thoughts, along with your whole family as you mourn the passing of a truly great person.
