Frank was born January 14, 1939 in Kansas City, Missouri. He was a master carpenter and retired from Carpenter’s Union #361. Frank will be remembered for his carpentry work all over Kansas City and was honored with the opportunity to be a carpenter’s foreman at Science City at Kansas City’s Union Station. He was loving husband, father and grandfather who loved to lend a helping hand to anyone without asking for anything in return. Frank had an infectious sense of humor with a gift to tell a joke or story. If you would ask him, “How you doing Frank” he had this say where he listed a string of positive words and it usually started out as, “Well I’m fantastic, I’m great and wonderful, you might say I’m superb and supreme, with a touch of marvelous”……from there he would add various other words, which it always ended with, “and I think its going to get better. How about you”? Frank and his wife Wanda were involved in square dancing and over the years together they enjoyed traveling across the United States to fellowship with other dancers. His biggest dream was to go to Nova Scotia for national square dance convention there, unfortunately that is one trip he was not able to make. Frank firmly believed that the youth of today was our vision for tomorrow, and we all had a part in it to teach and guide them.
