    Dear family of my Dear friend. I had the pleasure of meeting a few of you during a trip with Frank to Pennsylvania many years ago. A great time was had by all! What a great memory. Everything I did with Frank is a cherished memory. I love and adore him with all my heart. That’s just the way it has always been. Even when he would get mad when I won many of our Marathon Monoply games. No words can convey the sympathy I feel for you all. Please feel free to reach out if I can be of any help at all. Love Gail

    The days since learning of Frank’s passing have been a roller coaster for so many friends and family who were fortunate to know Frank. Then I read his obituary… it made me laugh, cry, reflect and in the end, confirmed that this was truly a great man and friend. Kudos to the authors… it is a wonderful testimony to Frank’s many amazing life experiences and the many people, animals, companies, causes and communities that he touched. He was an incredible friend, business consultant and human being…. one who always asked “What else can I do to help?”. On behalf of his hundreds of friends and co-workers from his consulting days in Pittsburgh, Wilkes-Barre, Camp Hill, Minnesota, Philadelphia and everywhere in between… thank you Frank for being the best and hardest working strategic, operational and business consultant one could ever work with but more importantly, for being such a good friend and fun person to spend time with.

    To Frank’s family… thank you for sharing him with all of us. He will be missed but not forgotten. Our thoughts and condolences, and our memories of Frank, will be with you and all of us forever.

    I live in the same building as Frank; we always seemed to arriving and departing at exactly the same time so we saw each other often! I knew Bacchus, his beloved, and took this photo of them both. I have been so affected by Frank’s passing…he was a wonderful human. When my dog died in Sept, he gave me the biggest bear hug. My most heartfelt condolences to his family and friends: Loss is left to the living to do…Frank is off with Bacchus—together again. ❤️

    Frank will always be one of my favorite people. Not often you find someone who equally loves the Cubs AND the Housewives. Rest well, dear friend. You’ll be sincerely missed.
