During his time in furniture sales, Frank sold products across Southern California for several companies including Bedline, Easy Rest, and La-Z-Boy. After retirement in 1990, Frank and Jackie returned to their beloved Minnesota, settling in the picturesque Lake Superior town of Grand Marais. During retirement, Frank collected and carved diamond willow. He sold his interesting crafts (lamps, walking sticks, pencil holders, and hat racks) in local shops.

He is survived by three grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, and three brothers: Amby of Chatsworth, CA; Vinnie of Cass Lake, MN; and Leo of Crowley, TX. He was preceded in death by his wife, Jacqueline; his daughter, Bonnie; and his son, John. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to (heart.org) or Cure Alzheimer's Fund (curealzfund.org).
