Frank found joy and solace in nature, spending countless hours camping, hunting, and fishing. He was a skilled mechanic and took pride in fixing machines of all kinds. His hard work ethic and dedication were evident in everything he did, from fixing machines to helping friends with their equipment. He cherished the moments spent with his family and friends and  was always ready with a helping hand and a story that would leave everyone laughing.
