I first met Frank at the home of Judy Denison, when he sang barbershop (what else?) from The Music Man. He and I both shared experiences in China AND our birth date of August 10th, and for some reason we hit it off from the start. I love Frank because he introduced me to Denver choral singing, local history, and bits of German. We recorded books for the Society for the Blind together, often took long walks, and enjoyed Thai Basil restaurant together on our natal day. And when I returned to China on an assignment, he sent me sheet music to begin a choral singing club with my college students. He loved his children, no matter what, and I think that he was very much in love with life. He moved forward like gangbusters in every endeavor, and my life is enriched for having known him. Sing away, Frank. I'm listening for you.

Sorry to hear of yet another fallen Eagle. While I did not always agree with the e-posts he made, I always enjoyed reading them. He will be sorely missed by many groups.

I didn't get to meet Frank, but I am lucky enough to know his son. A good measure of a man is reflected by the character of his children, so he succeeded at his most important job. My sorrow goes out to his family, but he will be watching over them until they are reunited.

I am so sorry to learn of Frank's passing. He introduced me to NACEL and a few of my students and I enjoyed some wonderful trips to France. My condolences to the family.
