I couldn't have asked for a better boss ( Cleve and Francis too). He was very patient at teaching me the tire business as well as a good friend when I needed to talk to someone. He also pointed out my weakness points at playing pool. By the way, he was pretty good at the game. Thank you Frank for always being there. My condolences to all the family especially Ron and Alon.

My deepest condolences for Frank's family and friends. I pray the Holy Spirit comforts you all; Frank was one of my football 'heroes'. I did like to watch him play; he seemed to handle life the same; with a smile but with firmness and grit. Don't believe I knew anything ever said bad about him; only good things. I pray the Almighty likes green and gold and purple and gold banners.

So sorry for your loss. We both went to BRHS with Frank. His daddy, Mr. Cleve, was Henry's SS teacher at Grace Baptist Church. We semi kept in touch through the years, especially when buying tires. Will always remember his loving smile and willingness to help others. Praying for all of you during this time. Henry & Steph
