Not sure what to say?

Our Sheltie Duncan, Charles Dickens, Frank and Shirley's home.

Gone, but surely NOT forgotten. What a wonderful gentleman, friend, etc. Frank excelled at everything he did, especially in his leadership, outreach, and uplift to Others. My deepest and continuing sympathies to his beloved wife of 55 years-Shirley, their Son-David, Beth, and their kids/Frank's and Shirley's grand-kids

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.

There is no finer gentleman then Frank Rader. He was a great leader and hard worker but most of all a very loving, caring person. He treated everyone as a friend, never met a stranger. So many were blessed to say they knew Frank. He helped shape a lot of young men and I feel lucky and honored to say I am one he had a everlasting effect on. Heaven has opened its gates for a grand gentleman. May we all celebrate his love for life , love , and the true meaning of happiness

Shirey... Our hearts are deeply saddened for the loss of your wonderful and loving husband... and to David, your precious and loving Father... and to all of the extended family of this exceptional human being! Frank was a man of many attributes but his love for his family was outstanding! Hold on to all the wonderful memories and carry Frank in your hearts forever! He will be watching over you, with his arms wrapped around each of you and sending down his great love every day forward! ...

Frank was one of the best friends we have ever had. He was a sweet and loving guy and very funny at times. We had many good times in Gatlinburg years ago and we can still laugh about them. He will be greatly missed. God bless this sweet family.


We are so sorry for your loss. Our hearts and prayers are with you and your family.

With love,

Chuck and Wendy
