Jo Anne - we met briefly at the 55th East Providence High School Reunion and I am so sorry for your loss. Frank will always be remembered by his football colleagues as a giant with a warm, gentle personality. At the 55th class reunion, I reminded Frank that he once stepped on my right arm with his size 17 football cleats during football practice. Of course, Frank was so sorry and I did recover but we always laughed about it in school. He had many friends in school and will be missed.

Frank was one of the greatest. A true US Marine through and through. Nothing was more fun than the back and forths Frank and I would have... him having been a Marine and me having been an MP in the Army. But we shared mutual respect for each other... having both served this great country. Frank, you will be missed. I know you are in a better place and endlessly playing fetch with Goliath! We love you! Craig, Ann and Bryn Bryn
