Frank's family was his true love. If his children were involved so was he; be it scouting, school sports, little league, PTA, or band concerts. He enjoyed teaching them how to fish, hunt, and enjoy nature. Many a story was told around the campfire. A true Navy man he also enjoyed the water. He and Phyllis spent many years cruising on Puget Sound and up into the Canadian waters aboard their boat the Free Spirit. They were members of Dagmar's Yacht Club and he held several offices including commodore. He and Phyllis also traveled in their RV up and down the west coast and Canada, besides trips to Mexico and Hawaii. Hunting trips to eastern WA were his favorite, and the whole family participated, as well as friends and neighbors.
