Frank was a good neighbor and friend to us and our kids. He was generous, quick witted, and easy to talk to. We've missed having him across the street since we moved, and even more now. Our prayers and condolences to Maria and the family.

Frank became my friend the first time that we met, years ago. We have had so many conversations in German & English about the world & life's experiences. I am going to really miss talking to him. I always enjoyed his quick wit and happy disposition. He was so proud of his family & cat. I am very glad for the opportunity to have known Frank.

I reflect on the fond memories of Frank and his family, their hospitality and the laughs. Frank would often rib me over a beer (or two) and a shot of Ettaler (often in accompaniment with some good German bread, meats and the like), which bottle(s) of Ettaler Sylvia had secured in her travels to Germany as a flight attendant.
