Frank Boos Obituary

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. (AP) _ Frank Boos, the bow-tied appraiser on the PBS program ''Antiques Roadshow,'' has died. He was 70.

Boos died Tuesday at his home from complications from vascular disease, his son Jonathan said.

Boos, an original member of the show's cast, appraised thousands of mainly silver antiques as the show toured American cities for the past decade.

Marsha Bemko, executive producer of the show, said that in some cities, Boos would appraise hundreds of objects, many of them of little value, but still would make people feel good about their antiques. She said Boos loved sharing his years of knowledge, telling people the origin and age of their items.

He also ran an auctioneer, appraisal and gallery business in Troy for more than 37 years.
