Frank as he loved to be called adored his family and loved spending time with them. Farming was a big and important part of his life, so he could often be seen riding his tractor and taking care of his fields when he could. Frank was compassionate and loving, one who never met a stranger. His favorite pass time while at the Oaks was sharing with his roommate Mr. Noyola and visiting with Mr. Jones. He retired from Thomas Furniture, where he was a machine operator. His love for making furniture was evident by the beautiful pieces of furniture he made for his family.
