Lynne and family,

Frank was a friend for over 40 years. His life was his family and friends. Very few people go through life and leave such a positive impact on everyone who knew them. I will miss the proud look on his face anytime he talked abouf the family.

Lynne & Family,

I want to exress my sincere sorrow and sympathy to you over Frank's passing. It was only two weeks ago that I exchanged email with Frank. I worked with Frank at Marcus for a couple of years but in that time, it was clear that Frank was a great lifeforce. In addition to work, we shared a love of military airplanes and discussed them often. Also, I really enjoyed Frank's love and knowledge of the Beatles!! He will be missed.

To Lynne and Family,
It's difficult to express what a tremendous loss Frank is to us.
He was more than an employee. Besides being the "Go To Guy" at Marcus Communications for 40 years, He was a large part of the foundation of the company. We went through good and bad times always working together towards a common goal. We supported each other in business and personal matters.
He will be missed!!
Our prayers are with you all.
