Not sure what to say?

I also knew him as Franny. I worked with him on the railroad. Great person and great Engineer. He like a good joke, and was always helpful to me on the job.

"Franny" as I called him at work was a great person. He was a pleasure to work with and a great teacher. When I worked with him and his son Frank they would keep me in stitches all day. The practical jokes they played on each made me laugh the whole trip. He will be missed by all that knew him. Condolences to the whole family..

Jean, God's peace and blessings for you and your family. with love, Cecily

Rest in peace grandpa, may your light always shine in our hearts, I love you! I will never forget the things you taught me...Japanese internment, you fighting for our country or working the railroad, oh and beer must be drank out of a straw!

My grandpa was one of my favorite people. I remember when I was little and he would let me help him pack his grip. Always felt special.

So sorry for your loss.

My sympathy Sharon to you and your family.
