So sorry to hear of Frank Klopp's death. I worked at State Farm and he was such an asset to State Farm. He was truly respected by all. He was a very caring and intelligent man.

Our prayers are with you all, as I know you will miss him.

May God Bless You All

Frank Klopp's middle name should have been "integrity". He was a lot of fun to work with, and he was a fabulous person. My heart goes out to Betty and all of his kids. He will be sorely missed.
