Frank’s desire was to honor the Lord Jesus Christ in all that he did. He graduated from Columbia International University (then Columbia Bible College) in 1968. His senior chapel message from that year may be heard here. Frank remained an avid student of the Bible and Theology until his very last days. An able teacher and patient friend, Frank will be missed by his family, friends and co-workers who benefited over the years from his love and careful insight.
