Met Frankie many times as my Aunt and Uncle (Clara And Shorty Atkins) were great fans of his.
I remember traveling all over with them to see him race. (Nazareth, Flemington, East Windsor, Five Mile Point, Lebanon Valley, etc.). There were a few times that Frankie and his crew stayed at my Aunt and Uncle's house overnight in Liberty, NY, on their way up to Lebanon Valley. I remember going to his yearly parties in his garage at his home in Flemington. My Aunt Clara was so thrilled when he showed up for her 80th birthday party years ago.
Frankie, it was a pleasure meeting you and following your racing career around the country. You were always a gentleman and I am very glad to have met your acquaintance. My sincere sympathy to little Frankie as I recall him and Darlene and the entire family.

Frankie Schneider a man who truly belongs in the NASCAR Hall of Fame. He was the best! I still remember the monkey that used to hold onto the rollbar that rode along with him at Nazareth many years back. Thanks for the wonderful memories. RIP Frankie!

The wonderful memories you are leaving us to treasure. I remember every week end I couldn't wait to go to the track cause Frankie would be. I was one of his number one fans, so glad I got a chance to see you at the Warren County Fair and you were able to sign my model car. You will be missed by all that knew you. Donna Allen

I saw him race and win at Reading, Nazareth, and Orange County. He raced all competitors cleanly. He was so highly respected among his fellow race drivers and his legion of fans. It is with sadness that I learn that he crossed his last finish line.
There was no better, rest in peace, Old Master

He remained a larger than life character till the end. I will miss the sparkle in his eyes and his "another day". Our condolences go out to his son Frank and his sisters who did so much to keep him well and in his own home these last few years. The Mann Family

Took my son Bobby Smith out to Frankie's garage when he was about 2 years old. He couldn't say stock car he would say Shock Car. And after that Frankie always called him Shock Car. He was a great guy. Susan J. Smith

Sir,
I did not know you personally, however I would very much like to "Thank You" for your dedicated and honorable Military Service to OUR country.
As a member of the "GREATEST GENERATION", and as a "WOROL WAR II VETERAN", you Sir are my HERO!
At a later date we will meet in that "SPECIAL PLEACE" which GOD reserves for ALL of those who have stepped forward to serve their country in a Military Uniform.
May ALL of GOD'S blessings be with your dear family!
