The Satterlys send their condolences. "Big Frank" provided many employment opportunities for me and others as we made our way through high school and college. Working alongside his son David, I will be forever grateful for the things we learned and the work ethic we acquired. He will be remembered for his kindness and setting many positive examples for us to follow. Much of my career success can be traced back to humble beginnings working for Mr. Gruenewald. We will miss him.

The members of Fritz's Polka Band are saddened to hear of Frank's passing. We dedicated our gig last night (June 28th) at the Lock #20 Park in Marcy in Frank's memory. He was a friend, a great guy and will truly be missed. Deepest condolences to his friends and family.

Robert and I are in shock. Such a grand gentleman we had the pleasure of sharing BTL seats with. God Bless.

My dad (Scott Creaser) passed in 2010 but served in Rotary with Frank. I always remember Frank as a man of high integrity and a wonderful sense of humor with a smile on his face. We were able to see him a few years ago and although my dad suffered with Alzheimer's, he loved Rotary and had a great time seeing everyone. Frank lived a wonderful life and made a difference in many ways to our community. He will be missed.

I am proud to say I knew Frank and served with him in Rotary. His accomplishments will be long remembered in our area. Prayers and blessings to the Gruenewald family during this difficult time. May God bless you and your Dad's soul.
