Born over a century ago, this beautiful man leaves a legacy that touched all our hearts.
Frank was a hard worker and cherished his family above all. He was married to the love of his life, Rose, until her passing in 2019 after 76 years of marriage.
Over the course of Frank's life, he worked hard farming, in the woods, carpentry and loved to garden. His love of nature and the outdoors was where he felt the most alive and took great comfort. He took pride in everything he did.
Frank's uncanny memory right until the end was outstanding. His knowledge & stories will be missed by his family and his community. He leaves behind love and memories that will be treasured forever. Frank never met a person that he didn't respect and love. He will live on in all of us Forever❤️xoxo
