Leave a Condolence


  1. Mike Penley says

    My deepest condolence on the loss of Frank. I dealt with him for many years at AAA. Many times I needed parts when I was not able to pay for them and he would send me on my way with what I needed simply on my promise to return on payday. Even in the 70’s and 80’s that was not easy to do for a young teenager. Frank was a good friend who earned much respect in his career for both his knowledge and his generosity. I had not seen Frank in many years but thought of him frequently.
