Ah...Dear Frank...he was such a gentle giant in our lives, our community's life, in the lives of everyone he touched. He was a brilliant man and yet so approachable. He was eager to help anyone he could with his smile, his camera, his "let me get right on that" way about him. He loved Helen and you knew it, he loved his dog(s), there were many over the years, and he loved his (retirement) farm. Did Frank really retire? Anyone who really knew him admired him, respected him and loved him. I know I did. We lost touch over the past few years, but with true friends you never lose the love. Peace and God be with you my friend. Krissie

I have known Frank for 70 years, beginning with when we were both entry-level employees with C&P Telephone at the Downtown Dial Center, 725-13th Street, NW. We attended Panel Dial School together, and were caught up in the effect of World War II on telephone service activity in Washington, DC. At one time we worked on switchboard maintenance from midnight to 8:00 AM. Frank's military service was in the Army, while mine was in the Navy. Our careers diverged when we were mustered out, and Frank worked in management positions in different departments, while I wound up in Engineering. Frank was the spark-plug for obtaining permission to establish the first amateur radio repeater in Washington in the penthouse of the telephone building at 725 13th Street, while I was the engineer who put it on the air. Frank retired after I had moved to Winchester, and I was pleased to see him join the Winchester amateur radio fraternity from his mountain-top domain. Frank was a very private person, and I was not aware of his recent health problems. He will be missed, and I offer Miss Helen and the family my condolences. Perry Crabill, W3HQX Winchester, VA
