Frank, known by many as Frankie, Spank, Spanky, Barney and brother lived life to the fullest. Everyone who knew Frank will remember him for his contagious laugh, his aloof outlook on life, his innate ability to make up hilarious lyrics to songs and his unwavering spirit despite life's relentless difficulties. Frankie's parents instilled an appreciation for the outdoors in him at a young age, cooking over the camp fire, boating, jet skiing, fishing, fishing and more fishing was what he loved most. Enemies were few and friends were many. Frankie is best remembered for the love he had for his daughter Madison, who was his ultimate pride and joy. Frankie loved his family and friends and he told us often. Summers were spent fishing at the ponds, camping up Hyalite Campground, Canyon Ferry and Sealy Lake. He was taken too soon and we will all miss him terribly.
Frank is survived by his fiancé, Tori Walker of Manhattan; sister, Danita (Micah) Grossberg of Plains; brother, Phil (Valerie) Briceno of Three Forks; his daughter, Madison Niles and life-long friend Jessica Sickler of Three Forks; his son, Chasen Arthur of three Forks; nephews Phillip (Angelica) Briceno of Manhattan, Vincent Briceno and Daeryk Zieger of Three Forks, Giovanni and Benicio Grossberg of Plains; his great-nieces Carmen and Kylie Briceno, grandparents, Juanita Swanson, Phyllis Crawford and Lloyd Bailey of Billings, and several aunts, uncles, cousins and a number of other relatives and close friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Deanna Niles.
