Worked at PHI from 1972-1976 and was astounded to find that Frank knew the names and faces of his employees. It was not uncommon to pass him in the hall and have him greet you by name. Best job I ever had.

I had the honor of working for him at one of his Pizza Huts. He was always so upbeat and positive, I'll always remember his enthusiasm and encouragement. He made serving people fun and taught me to be passionate about my job. God bless his family during this time.

Frank was a great man. I worked for The Hut for 17 years and never got to know him. Left to start a Genghis Grill franchise in Kansas City when I met Frank as another franchisee. He was so humble and easy to talk with. I always will remember each detail about our talks! Finding myself working back at The Hut again I truly cherish our short time!

Rest in peace my dynamic friend!

i send my sincere condolences to his family and many friends. He was a creative genius and inspired many to own their own franchise. i was able to send my two children to college and graduate school because i owned a Pizza Hut franchise. To his family, please accept my heartfelt sympathies. He was one in a million. I'm praying that the God of all comfort gives you peace and the strength to endure this terrible loss. He will be greatly missed.

Thank you, Frank and Dan, for being founders of one of the top two most blessed employers of my working lifetime!!!! You both, along with Steve Reinemund, Alan Houston, Pat Williamson, Alan Feldman, Phil Crimmins, as well as my longtime Pizza Hut management team members in Louisville, KY, from 1988-2000, including Rosemary Lynch, made Pizza Hut a beautiful memory every time I served our wonderful customers, or, as I was taught, "Our reasons for being!!!"

Frank Carney was an early collector/supporter of my artwork. This was at a time when this support was really invaluable and most meaningful to me. I really cherished our friendship over the years. I so admired his warm and down-to-earth demeanor. And, I respected (and even envied) his organization and entrepreneurial skills - his prowess in racing cars, and his dedication to cycling . . .
I fondly remember ordering my 1st pizza(s) at the original Pizza Hut in Wichita on East Kellogg. Over the years, Pizza Hut pizzas are still my preferred and favorite pizzas - rather than Papa John's.
My sympathy, my empathy, and my heart goes out to Janie. Frank will be so missed by so many of us. Thank you for being you, Frank. May you rest in peace.
Love and positive thoughts to the Carney Family - Dave Yust
