So sorry to hear about Frank. He was my supervisor for several years at y-12 and he was always my friend every time we met. I hope you find comfort and peace in knowing that someone so special will never be forgotten. He will live forever in the memories of the loved ones he leaves behind. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Evelyn, Jay and family,
We are so sorry for your loss. Frank was one of our favorite people in the whole world. He was a great neighbor for over 20 years, and a great friend . Larry enjoyed working with Frank at the Y-12 plant in Oak Ridge. And he was always so kind to our children, Chad, Lori, and Kent - who loved him, too! Frank ALWAYS had a smile and encouraging words for everyone he met.
No one ever doubted his love for his Lord.The Psalms tell us that God is near the broken hearted. Our prayer is that you would sense Gods presence and his love for you in a mighty way.
We have so many amazing memories through the years of our time spent with Frank, Evelyn, and Jay. We treasure them.
We love you and will be praying for you in the coming days.
