He truly had a heart of gold and enjoyed helping anyone in need. Frank loved Jesus and was very faithful. He enjoyed listening to Southern Gospel music and playing the bass and guitar at his church. He always made sure to keep everyone laughing with his humor and always shared his wisdom with others. He will truly be missed by his family and friends.
