My Uncle Frank was a kind, loving, gentle man. Uncle Frank loved all of his family, and especially all of us when we where children! He always had that big wonderful smile on his face that could light the room up, and the kisses and hugs I remember well. He would sing to me, tell me jokes, and most of all let all of us know how much he cared and loved us. Uncle Frank I am going to miss your sweet smile and face, may God keep you in his arms, and welcome you into heaven, by the way please tell my Mother, Father, and Brother I love them. I will always have a special place in my heart for you R.I.P. my sweet, and kind Uncle Frank your niece forever.

Frank was a remarkable man. I went to the gym where he exercised on a regular basis. Frank radiated with joy, was generous in spirit, and considered everyone his friend.

Today, at the gym, Frank’s picture and tribute were posted for all to see. He will be missed by us all.
