Deb and family:

I was sorry to hear about Frank.  He was my student many years ago at DHS and is well-remembered as a talented actor.  I particularly remember his performance in Macbeth, quite a tour de force for a high school student.  All the best to you--

My condolences and best wishes to Frank's family and friends. May the year 2021 be a kinder year to all. Frank and I shared speech and theater interests at Defiance College, and we had many good times with that group of brilliant, creative fellow students. I'll never forget he came backstage after we performed "Arsenic and Old Lace" and praised my performance with his usual boisterous enthusiasm. His smile, laugh and energetic spirit was an inspiration to me. Rest in peace, good brother. -- Wade Marbaugh, Atlanta, Georgia

I am so sorry to hear of Frank's passing. I passed Frank in the halls many times at DHS and even though we never knew each other well, he always had a smile and kind words. I haven't seen Frank in years, but I thought of him often, as my grandson enjoyed performing in musicals in high school.  I know he will be horribly missed by his family. I pray for your peace in the days to come. Please know that he was loved by many.
