     Frank worked at General Motors Tilton Foundry for several years as an Electrician and then retired to enjoy life with his family.  He and Jackie shared 58 wonderful years together and never missed the opportunity to spend time with their kids, grandkids, and great grandkids.  He enjoyed going fishing and hunting and was a member of the Ouabache Valley Frontiersman.  He was also a lifetime member of the NRA.  Frank loved to do woodwork and had a beautiful talent which he shared with everyone.  He will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him.
