We had a short acquaintance with Frank and Donna at Hillcrest CC and we enjoyed our friendship very much. I wish our relationship was longer since Frank was always upbeat and fun to be around. Condolences from Bud & Deb Kuhn and may Frank Rest In Peace! Donna, we were very saddened to hear the news today!

Frank was a joy to be around. We sang in the church choir, along with Donna, for many years together. He was such a caring person, a real gentleman, always helping. Rick and I will miss his humor. He's singing in heaven's choir now. May he rest in peace. Rick and Barb Bigley
