Having known Frank for most of my life, I can say with some certainty that Frank was a good person who always did what he believed was the right thing to do for all concerned. When faced with a crisis, Frank would shrug off the most crushing of blows, and simply put himself to the task of tackling the problem and doing whatever had to be done to make things right. He was the most loyal of friends and was always willing to help whenever asked. I am grateful for having known you Frank and wish you well in the next world.

I am really sorry for your all's loss especially due to the suddenness that his death occurred. Your loss will be shared by not only his former school partners of DHS but also to all the students he has taught over the years at Spearfish. He has touched many a lives.
