I knew Frank all through school, but after graduation I only saw him if I needed something repaired or bumped into him on the street, my thoughts were always the same, he loved his family, he loved life and he did it all with a happy heart.
May your many memories and Gods love see you through.

I have many memories of Frank as a little girl as he and my dad were friends. I especially remember the christmas displays at his house and even as I got older and moved away if i was home for christmas would drive past the house to see if Frank put the lights up that year! Thank you for all the memories as a little girl growing up in Pleasant Hill.

To the Weihrauch Family,
We first met your family when our daughter Melissa Reber was in school with Melissa. Your family was always very kind to her. We always came to see the fabulous lights. We did a lot of business with Frank over the years and enjoyed each time we spent with him.
May God's peace be with you now in your time of need.

Sharon and Family,

I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I will always remember the many laughs Frank had when he visited Dr. Light. I sill remember the many conversations we all had. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

I also remember the many visits to view the lights at Christmas. He brought happiness and smiles to many, many people.

Please know you are not alone. God, family and friends are there for you always.

A friend in Christ.

My thoughts and prayers go to my cousin Sharon and her daughters Melissa, Jennifer and Arianna. I share in your loss and love you very much.

Frank was a special person, very entertaining. One of the "crazy" moments I will always remember is the time I helped at Sharon & Frank's painting party, when they bought their home. Being the "character" he was, Frank rolled the paint roller over my butt, while I was on the ladder. Of course I in turn was obligated to drizzle paint in his ear, as he was hunched down painting the bottom of the wall. Oh, so many wonderful, funny memories I will always treasure. I will miss the goose man.

I got to know Frank through my sister Stacy and his daughter Melissa. He was a great guy. He always was friendly and had a smile on his face. My deepest condolences to the family and God Bless You all. Take Care.

My Brother-My Best Friend
I will miss him so very much.
He has taught me many, many things.
I've learned how to rewire light sets-how to replace plugs-repair converters-and how to drip dry after being thrown in his pool fully clothed,more than once.
Anyone who knew him will miss the craziness about him. He was truly a very special person. All those nights putting up the lights-freezing sometimes, but he made it fun.
I'll never forget the time I was on his roof with a string of lights and finding the ladder had mysteriosly dissapeared. I was up there for awhile until SOMEONE let me down.
I will miss him and loved him dearly.
Sharon,Melissa, Jennifer,and Arianna- I'll always be here for you.
Frank's Little Sister,

I went to high school with Melissa and was fortunate enough to enjoy many visits with her and her family. All these years later I still have such fond memories of all of them. It goes without saying, of course, that Frank always made us laugh. My thoughts and prayers are with the Weihrauch family.

I have so many memories of my Uncle Frank. I spent summers with him and Aunt Sharon and always stay with them when we visit Pa. You never knew what Uncle Frank was going to say or do. He loved to make prank phone calls to me, the most recent one to my job and I had no clue that it was him. Everytime I would call to say we were coming to PA I would ask if we could stay with them and he would tell me he had a tennis match and wouldn't be around ( I don't think he has ever played tennis). Those of you who knew him really well knew that he didn't like to travel, but 2 1/2 years ago he came to North Carolina to be with us for our 25th wedding anniversary celebration and that meant so much to me. I will miss him sooooo much and have so many memories of wonderful times sitting at their kitchen table just talking. My prayers and thoughts are with you Aunt Sharon, Melissa, Jennifer and Arianna.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Weihrauch family. I will dearly miss my visits with Frank in the shop every couple weeks talking about satellite stuff. I also want to thank him for all the great Christmas displays he set-up for my kids and family to enjoy as they grew always seemed to make Christmas much more special! I must honestly say it was an honor and a privlage to know this man and have him as a friend! May "God Bless" Frank and the Weihrauch family.

I got to know Frank many years ago, not only for having a business in North Cornwall Twp. but the traffic nightmare he caused for me every year from the damn Christmas Lights. Spent many a visit in the shop, shooting the bull with a very knowledgable man. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Our hearts go out to his family.

I first met Frank when I was 11 or 12 years old. He was working the radio bench at Hunsicker's and I would stop by after school and watch him. That became part of my early education in electronics.

I have known and worked with Frank for 45 years and it's all been fun. And I will think of him every year when I climb up on the roof to hang the Christmas lights. He gave me my first set of lights and bulbs to get me started in that craziness!

Frank was one of the sharpest guys I ever met. It's hard to imagine that I'll never again answer the phone and hear him say "you got a minute?"

My sympathy to Sharon and the family on your loss. I'm sure going to miss "Mr. Entertainment."
