Condolences to the family. I have not seen Frank for ages. In the early to mid 70s I was in the WGFC with Frank. He was one of the engineers that was teaching pump operations at the time. He was a great mentor. I remember the times he would kick back and talk about fire engines, trains, and many other topics. Those were good times. RIP Frank.

Frank and I shared some 57 years of friendship from when we met in Lower Moreland High School in 1961. He and I shared an interest in both fire equipment and railroad heritage. He has been a good man in whatever endeavor he encountered, and he can now be reunited with Marion. Marie joins me in extending our deepest thoughts to Chris and Jenny and their families.

I am a long time friend of Bernadette, his wife, and I am grateful for all the help Frank has given Bernadette especially in the past few years. I enjoyed seeing both of you recently for dinner. May the Lord continue to watch over Bernadette as she feels this great loss of Frank.
