Frank was such a talented musician... a drummer who played with various bands for over forty years... even playing with Basilisk at the Armadillo World Headquarters in the '70s. Music was his life from the time he was 12 and got his first drum set. He had various jobs over the years but his favorite was spending the past five years driving the school bus for Bastrop, he loved the children and they loved him. His unique sense of humor, warm smile and endearing personality will be deeply missed by all. His love of family, music and life will be celebrated Sunday March 14th at 3:00 p.m. at Saengerrunde Hall next to Scholz's Beer Garden at 1607 San Jacinto St in Austin.
