WINTER HAVEN - Frank left this world peacefully on Friday, May 10th, following a long battle with cancer. His achievements were many - he entered the Air Force at the age of 17 and retired as a Master Sgt in 1969. He was known for his quick smile and piercing blue eyes. His love for the game of golf was front and center, and was reflected in his many victories. He worked as a golf pro and body shop owner.
Frank was preceded in death by his son, Bart. He leaves behind his loving wife, Shirley, daughters Pam Painter (Tom), Kim Simmons (Lori), Stephanie Stumpf (Dean), and grandchildren, Amanda, Thomas, and Morgan. He is mourned also by his best friend, his terrier mix, Phoebe.
A celebration of his life will be announced at a later date.
