Volusia County Pays its Respects to Our Beloved Howard Frank
Howard Frank will be remembered as one of Volusia County's most beloved and iconic gentlemen. Born in New York City in 1925, he proudly served his country in the United States Navy during WWII. On a trip to Daytona Beach shortly after the war, Howard would go on to meet his wife-to-be Naomi Sussman. Howard was smitten with Naomi's beauty and they decided to make the beautiful City of Daytona Beach their
home. Howard Frank was not only one of Florida's first bail bondsmen, but he was also one of the first Jewish bail bondsmen in the United States. Howard Frank would go on to flourish in his business, operating numerous agencies throughout the state. Howard built his business on the very principles he espoused; exhibiting respect, courtesy, and kindness to everyone. Believed by many to be a "tough guy" (having tracked down over 1,000 accused criminals), Howard Frank was compassionate, sweet, and caring with everyone he encountered. His son, Scott, who was born in Daytona Beach, idolized and cherished his father, having been exposed daily to the "giant" of a man that Howard Frank was. Howard Frank is survived by his wife, Naomi and his son, Scott, as well as the thousands of people whom he came into contact with throughout his heroic life as a war veteran, a son, a husband, a father, a successful businessman, a justice advocate, a role model, and most importantly, a man of unparalleled values.
All are invited to attend Funeral services to be held at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday March, 18th at Mt. Sinai Cemetery, 342 White St., Daytona Beach, Florida.
